    The Phaedo team have smashed the Round the Island Race record in the UK. They reveled in the heavy conditions and powered round the course in 2 hours, 23 minutes and 23 seconds.

    Thanks Brian.
    It's written by Zweig. That means all. And it's a great, great book.
    Zweigh died in 1942. So he is now in the public domain. at least French and German.
    For those living far, far away with only failing local money in hand, and deficient stealing postal services, make a search for a free PDF at Gutenberg for example.
