A wonderfully wry take on the British, their culture and obsessions by the man who explains them to the world for the BBC.
This pukka tour of British loves/hates (a la Marmite) and eccentricities by the lead writer of BBC's Anglophenia blog, will appeal to Brits and Anglophiles alike. It gives us the low down on topics from 'ampersand foods' (bangers & mash, fish & chips, Marks & Spencer) to Doctor Who to the Royal Family to emotional reserve and the infamous stiff upper lip. When do we find it bloody appropriate to swear? What are the five best British rock bands? Why can't we Brits resist a pun? Find out in this truly spiffing guide to what's great about Great Britain.
