    Description
    The indispensable manual for everyone who longs to attain True Britishness

    George Mikes's perceptive best-seller provides a complete guide to the British Way of Life. Having been born in Hungary, he eventually spent more than forty years in the field, and the fruits of his labour include insights on important topics including the weather, how to be rude and how to panic quietly. Loved by readers and authors alike, How to Be a Brit contains Mikes's three major works -- How to be an Alien, How to be Inimitable and How to be Decadent. If you're British, you'll love it; if you're a foreigner, you'll appreciate it.
    How to plan a town: "Street names should be painted clearly and distinctly on large boards. Then hide these boards carefully."Queuing: "An Englishman, even if he is alone, forms an orderly queue of one."

    Sex: "Continental people have sex lives: the English have hot water bottles."
