    DescriptionAs DCI Gene Hunt, Philip Glenister has travelled back in time to 1974 and 1981 - and become a national treasure in the process. Now, in his hilarious and fascinating book, Things Ain't What They Used to Be, he takes the reader on a hilarious, personal journey through the 70s and 80s and compares them with how we live today. Was it really all so much better then? Or should we throw away our rose-tinted spectacles? Along the way Philip ponders many vital questions, such as: which decade had the best cars? Which had the worst haircuts? And exactly how heavy were the original 'mobile' phones? Already one of our best-loved stars, in THINGS AIN'T WHAT THEY USED TO BE Philip Glenister also reveals himself to be a witty, warm and perceptive observer of life. If you're going on a nostalgia trip, you couldn't ask for better company.
