Product Description

Book Description

The Highway Code is Britain’s best selling non-fiction book, and in 2006 it will be exactly 75 years old. Isn’t it about time that the old codger got out of the driving seat and let the real rules of the road take over? Enter The Myway Code, the shifty, wayward offspring of the original that has priority over all oncoming vehicles and is set to drive itself to the top of the charts faster and harder than is legally appropriate. Written and laid out in a style which will be familiar to anyone who has seen, and therefore failed to read, the official book, The Myway Code puts its foot down and its finger up, as it rips up the L-plates and tears up the road like an XR3i full of feral children on alcopops.

About the Author

Dan Kieran is one half of the original team behind Crap Towns and Ian Vince brought us the excellent Britain: What a State in 2005.

Format: Hardcover
As well as making great toilet reading for the average bloke, this is a superior parody of the original Highway Code. Not an obvious "let's replace the word 'must' with 'must not' everywhere" approach, but a well thought-out and hilarious guide to the modern road. I particularly liked the bits about chuggers, skidding and box junctions as well as 16 pages of signs and signals. The only pity is that it doesn't have a dust jacket/sleeve - opting instead for a paper lined hardcover (which I'm not over the moon about, though you may feel quite differently). That said, this is a funny, funny book, printed in full colour throughout on high-quality paper. At [...]it's a bargain.

Not a book to be read in a public place, such as a coffee shop, as the loud guffaws of laughter make people nervous.

Brilliant, witty writing, sharp observation of the rather odd fascinations of road users and those what try to govern them.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By H. Crutchley on 1 Mar 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book is a fine specimen of genuine British comedy. Don't believe the reviews that say this book is rubbish or boring! It is designed to be a lighthearted joke of a book and it certainly fits its purpose.

Be careful when browsing in the presence of others because they will ask you why you are laughing out loud (and i mean loud..)! Clearly a lot of effort has gone into writing this. Much of it does resemble how we tend to drive after passing your test and so it is easy to relate!

This book is ridiculously funny and you will want to read it out to other folks to share the comedy. From pictures of cows in high vis vests with flashing beacons on their heads to careful diagrams of horse signals from the rear - you will find it funny as it seems to tickle our universally accepted sense of humour!

Please buy this book to see what I mean (especially because it is also a bargain)! And promise me not to take it all so seriously, its meant to be that random and funny!

The only book i have ever read to have made me laugh out loud - frequently.

Sharp, astute, sometimes downright bizarre, but always very funny, The Myway Code gets a thorough recommendation.

absolutley brilliant-sarcastic,witty,sattirical-don't we all recognise someone,if not ourselves,who drives like this?! I couldn't contain the laughter on reading the 'Theory test' questions-a wonderful present to yourself or anyone who appreciates a lighthearted look at the Rules of the Road.Worth every penny!
