Top Notch Stuff - My Kindest Regards To The Author
on 26 December 2013
I read this in one day. My only (unreasonable) complaint would be that it didn't last longer (I am British, I must make a small and unimportant complaint. If you give me a rainbow I'll probably opine that it's a bit too showy). Because this book grew out of a Twitter account, it naturally is short and sweet. If you've been following the Twitter account - @soverybritish - you'll love this. If you haven't, have a look and if you're amused then you will enjoy this book. My Favourite chapter is chapter 21 - language barriers.
Another great thing about this book is that it sparks off your awareness of your own very british problems. Examples from my life are:
Using "Thank you for your input" to mean you've already disregarded whatever piffle someone said.
Feeling you've been massively over familiar by using "Kindest regards".
Maybe if we send more of our very British problems to @soverybritish we'll get another book next Christmas. I hope so :)
