"A Crump who has inherited the family flare for writing a yarn"
4 stars"

This is a book which will make you laugh. Give it to the somebody in your office who hasn't smiled in a while and watch the change. This author does not need to walk in his fathers shadow as he is quite able to proceed on his own.
Read it and I'am sure you will enjoy it as much as i did

Description

A book of humorous stories with a distinctive Kiwi flavour, both true and definitely not true, compiled through Radio Pacific, a leading radio talkback station based in Auckland. Spinning a good yarn is a time-honoured tradition in this country, and we've all heard some great ones. They used to be the favourite of the smoko room, the pub and the family gathering, the social occasions that bound us together as a community. We all know the sort of thing - stories about the larrikin, the local colourful identity, the tall tales and the fact is stranger than fiction true life tales of the absurd and the barely believable. We're in danger of losing them in this era of the internet joke you read rather than tell. After all, half the skill and humour in a good yarn is in the telling and the ever so gentle stretching of the truth. You should never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
