Gervase Phinn has written an entertaining memoir of his first year as a school inspector in North Yorkshire. His love of children and his job comes through in the stories he recounts of overseeing teachers and curriculum in this rural area of England. However, his audio delivery is stilted, with pauses in unnatural places that make him sound like he is speaking to someone who has difficulty with English. The monotone delivery does not convey the enthusiasm that the words do. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
