Full of interesting details and ideas
on 27 January 2013
This is an informative, readable book about the English obsession with manners, which will appeal to history fans. It also includes ideas from anthropology and picks up on the author's own experiences, to result in a book that is quite quirky but also full of interest and food for thought. Highly enjoyable and packed with anecdotes which I will enjoy retelling.
