What the critics say

'In this quirky, insightful adventure, Brian O'Connell finds the humanity behind the typeface.'- Ryan Tubridy 'A fantastic collection' - The Today Show with Sean O'Rourke, RTÉ Radio 1 'Entertaining and poignant reading'- Echo 'An utterly lovely gift idea.' - Woman's Way 'Charming and often moving . The Personals is full of great stories - from sad to quirky to funny to, the odd time, baffling - as Brian tracks down the back-story to such unusual items-for-sale as a pair of monkeys, Leaving Cert notes, a cross-dressing dress-up service, German Army helmets from World War I and a bulletproof car, among more mundane objects. In other words, life in all its madness and glory.' - RTE Guide
