Ramble Book – Adam Buxton
Ramble Book is an autobiography of sorts, but it is also a book about the joys of going off topic and letting your mind wander . . . of rambling. Buxton’s podcast is similarly willing to go off track and to meander down conversational roads that are a long way from the original subject matter. This could be frustrating but instead it offers up interesting diversions. An adjunct of this is how Buxton’s podcast episodes normally include an intro and outro which he records on a walk – there is something about the act of going for a walk that allows discussions to happen in a more free way than they do in a more domestic or formal setting.
Buxton attended Westminster school and the book includes his experience of that environment and the effect that his father’s determination that his children should be educated in such an establishment had on his family. Adam also explores how everything that he watched, read or listened to as a child becomes part of his adult life.
