It is hard to overstate the value of what Judah has done . . . This is London is an important and impressive book
A revelatory work, full of nuggets of unexpected information about the lives of others . . . [Judah] is a fine, intrepid reporter
Judah has succeeded in opening reader's eyes to the hardships experienced by many and ignored by most
This is of my favourite books on London, largely because of the quality of the writing – such sass, such soaring confidence and style . . . Judah listens and observes with acute loyalty to depicting truth, so that no matter who’s talking, the dialogue seems brilliantly accurate. Well researched, it covers all corners of London in forensic detail
