Walk on by

Before World Squares for All and other walker-friendly initiatives become reality, Simon Pope's London Walking: A Handbook For Survival (ellipsis, 256pp, £10) should be invaluable.

Handy hints on footwear, clothing, nutrition, and pedestrian etiquette are given, plus the desirable 'velocity' when crossing the street.

And for those only gradually getting used to abandoning the car, he has a tip from the late Pat Phoenix, Coronation Street 's Elsie Tanner: after a hard day on your feet, soak them in Lenor fabric conditioner. Magic!
