Press Reviews

'Vintage Simpson - humour, insight, spiritual impact and sacred comment'

- Presbyterian Herald

'A glorious collection of stories, some to make you laugh, some to make you think, and most to make you do both at the same time. Short pieces that can be read in moments ... An ideal Gift book, that after the first or maybe the second reading, could well spend many years on a bathroom windowsill dispensing wisdom to anyone with time to linger.'

- Mary Bartholomew, The GoodBookStall

'His latest book ... this most entertaining and amusing read'

- Northern Times




'Many of the stories in the book will exercise our chuckle muscles'

- Ross-shire Journal
