Product Description

Review

This fascinating, fact-filled compendium about our green and pleasant land is packed with all manner of information covering topics such as royalty, science, warfare, sport, law, art, agriculture, folklore, and much more... entertaining and enlightening. There can be few books where the Knights of the Round Table, Colman's Mustard, Mrs. Pankhurst, the Corn Laws, Routemaster buses, Churchill, and the 1966 World Cup are brought together so effectively, but this one manages just that.
-- This England, Summer 2007

I was given this book last Christmas - and it got passed round us all over the next few days during which we got quite nostalgic over Bird's custard and it settled a discussion on James Bond. There's a nice gentle humour throughout and it's amazing what facts you pick up, or thought you knew but weren't quite right about. It covers pretty much everything you could want to know about England. I've since sent a few copies out to expat friends of mine to universal gratitude.

I like this book. Obviously, it's not an in-depth history book and it doesn't claim to be such. But it does make for interesting browsing and has sparked my interest in certain subjects that I will now read up upon in more detail.

This book should be on the National Curriculum.

Actually, on reflection, it should BE the National Curriculum. We might actually start producing individuals who were aware of how much there is in their country's history of which they should be proud.
