Format: Paperback
I first read this book as a kid of 14 or 15 and rolled around laughing, and 16 years later it has the same effect!
Paul Manning manages to find all that is crass, tasteless and daft about how the average British person spends their spare and working time, and has written a manual to give the budding Wally or "Walette" as the female of the species a guide on how to behave. It's a kind of etiquette manual for those sorts of people who have wondered why they enjoy stuffing loads of paper down the toilets of Virgin Trains to make them flood, without knowing quite why they do it! Yes, congratulations, you are indeed a Wally in training, but this manual will help you reach the pinnicale of success...etc!
For the rest of society, it's like a guide to a peculiar type of animal you see on the streets and at work in your everyday life, the sort who drives a Porsche with a bumper sticker proclaiming "My Other Car's a Porsche" etc, or is manfully lending a hand with the building work at your half-finished Spanish Hotel whilst on holiday themselves.
Although now somewhat dated, the type of person it deals with is still very much around, and I garantee it will make you think of someone down the pub or in the office that it will describe perfectly!
Give it a go, may become worth something one day!

I remember buying this book thirty years ago when it came out and it was the funniest book I had ever read.
