A very amusing book, but serious at the same time. It is fun using the language of my ancestors to confuse my foreign friends. They think our version of some English words amusing, but the cockney delights everyone I meet and they want a copy for themselves.
Having American nieces and nephews I can at long last give them a book to understand me without me having to think what the equivalent is in their form of English. Very useful and insightful gift - but also a laugh.
