Playing Shopping Centres by Jim Mahoney

From the introduction by Billy McComb:

There are TWO THINGS you've got to appreciate about this treatise.

First of all it shines through every line that it's written by a man who knows what he is talking about and has actually WORKED Shopping Malls.

He pointed out the shops in a district we were going through and said, "In a few years time you won't see many shops like that around." I said, "Why?". He said, "Because it will get like the States.

Under pressure, he is usually willing to admit he was probably the worst performer to ever inflict himself on a long suffering yet patient and forgiving public. Nevertheless, for several years he...
