    If you stick that exact ISBN into Amazon.co.uk, you should get one result - new £65 and used from £10.38.

    I put at least one tie on every Thursday after swimming. You'd think Y5 kids could tie their own!

    Yup, anyone that has met me on here (Overworked is one of them) knows I'm a tie fanatic (well maybe he didn't know that but I am). I've got about 50 different ones and they all clash with my shirts and I think its great I'm an individual and the kids love it at work how I have funny ties with characters on in the main.

    Serious point I wear one daily at work, if it gets in the way it gets taken off and the put on again or tucked into the shirt, they are not that weird really.

    ohh here we go again the big tie debate all we need is Tony to come along and start thread about ironing and we have the set.

    But on serious note yes I agree with you John about taking a tie off..

    Must admit one of my jobs is two sit down and learn to a few different knots.

    Well i have a copy of that very book in front of me at the moment, and the price (on the inside front of the paper sleeve) is (was) a mere £10-00

    There is a URL printed on the back - 4th Estate - HarperCollins if that is of any help!
