    Eating Goldfish & Other Delicacies

    Only just readable andfull of innaccuracies. The female half if theBurnie's is Catherine not Margaret. Brendon James Abbot did not take photos of himself in front of police stations and send them to police. Abott is not in jail in NSW, he is in a Qld jail. Greenough is not in far north of WA, in fact not too far from Geraldton which is only a few hours fromPerth. I could list many more but that gives you some idea. Also the title seems to innsinuate that somehow goldfish are / were somehow eatenwhilsy in prison, but that is not the case. Poor really and thankful it wasn't too costly to purchase this book.
