4.0 out of 5 stars A well written punchy tour of everything British!, 5 Jan. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Should Know That: Great Britain: Everything You (and the Prime Minister) Really Should Know About GB (Kindle Edition)
As a Brit who is slightly ashamed about their lack of knowledge of the UK, I found that the book provided a punchy, concise history of everything you'd need to know about the UK. Emma Marriott has done a great job in moving the book on at a decent pace when some parts seem to get slightly tedious and provides well rounded, well researched history of nearly everything British, with some humorous quotes from various influential Brits throughout that'll make readers grin. There are times where the book is overloaded with statistics and I found myself flicking through quickly on occasions as there are sometimes too many numbers to try to absorb. I will definitely refer back to this book in future months and years when my foreign relatives come to visit armed with questions! I highly recommend this book to anyone regardless of their depth of knowledge in the UK.
