A very funny guide to social status,
This review is from: The Middle Class Handbook: An illustrated field guide to the behaviour and tastes of Britain's new middle-class tribes (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The author of this field guide to the Middle Classes new and old has clearly done his research and fashioned an amusing and well structured book. Each chapter deals with an individual 'tribe', usually to great comic effect. At the back is a question and answer flow chart that enables the reader to put themself into a particular 'tribe'. Now I can't promise anything, but it had me perfectly summed up, even to the extent that my name was the one given to the male member of the tribe! If you've got this for Christmas, pick it up and dip into it. Its great fun with more than a few real insights.
