Suggs and the City : Journeys Through Disappearing London Paperback
Revelling in the off-beat and eccentric, Londoner Suggs takes us on a nostalgic adventure to explore the disappearing history of his extraordinary home town: from the sharp tailors of Saville Row to the sex traders of Bohemian Soho, by way of quaint and quirky habitats, brilliant but endangered boozers, unique eateries that have introduced the capital to the world's finest foods and a music scene that's dear to his heart.
Drawing on three series of Suggs's ITV programme of the same name, on the Suggs in the City chatshow, and on Suggs's personal experience of loving London, this is the enlightening and highly entertaining story of a living, breathing town and its ability to absorb and adapt over the centuries, seen through the eyes of one of its favourite sons.

Review by Daftboy1
This is Suggs the lead singer from the band Madness looking at buildings in London that are nearly gone and in some cases allready knocked down or totally changed. He looks at Soho, Leisure, Sport, Musc. Some bits of this book are really interesting others are a bit boring. Overall its an not bad book.
