I read it originally in NL. Reread it again since living in the UK and a whole slew of new observations about Brits suddenly made sense!
If you like Bill Bryson, you'll love Brit-Think Ameri-Think.
A must for the plane - what ever direction you are crossing the Atlantic.
The Brit-Think, Ameri-think ..... is surprisingly useful and gives a good impression of what to expect in the USA. I suspect it will minimise any culture shock for Brits.
Buy it - - this is mostly a good or very good read - - the first 50% of the book is the funniest, and the quips by the author make it all the more more memorable and useful.
The view of the "British" is also useful for our cousins when they visit the UK - - but (USA) beware - - the UK is even more "concentrated" in its character than this book explains - - due to the UK's open borders and so on - - plus this is a small island which makes it appear even worse in the cities for visitors.

Great quality for a used book. I received it on time and I'm satisfied with my purchase.
