Product Description

About the Author

Chris Whitfield is an accountant with a sense of humour, which most people consider a contradiction. He lives on the Wirral with his wife and two bitches. That's a Border Terrier and a Cockapoo, in case you're thinking he's living the life of an African tribe leader who believes he's a gangsta rapper. Chris has three grown up children but has never quite managed to grow up himself. At the age of eighteen, Chris was often mistaken for pop idol, Donny Osmond. Nearly four decades on and ravaged by time, the best he can now do in the look-a-like stakes is Richard Osman from BBC TV's Pointless. Osmond to Osman, how the mighty fall. Chimpanzees in Dungarees is his first book. There's already more than a few, hoping it's the last.

Format: Paperback
That strap-line from the Daily Star ads of years ago is mostly forgotten, like the items covered in this quality debut from Chris Whitfield. I must declare an interest, having worked with the author for over 7 years. That's not to say that I would give the book a good review just because of that. From knowing the man and his sense of humour, I reckoned I knew what to expect; and I must say that I was not disappointed. I'm not much of a reader, but I need something to do when I'm on my holidays and waiting for the better half to get ready to go out. There's usually nothing in English on the telly once you've been through the news loop, apart from old episodes of Midsomer Murders, so the bite-sized format of this book was ideal for me. The chuckle count was pleasingly high; and it was nice to be reacquainted with certain things which, like the late Mrs Shuttleworth, were just a distant memory. The book is written in a p*ss-taking style similar to that of a footy fanzine writer (like me), and contains sharp observations and shining wit. If you have a sense of humour and wonder what happened to the Reliant Robin, black & white TV and many more, then snaffle a copy of this book. Go on, you know you want to.

Hail to the Dungmeister!

This book takes you on a journey of nostalgia through the things that are so easily forgotten and yet should be remembered for the laughs they supply and for the very real memories of life.

A quick-fire and humorous look at the inconsequential occurrences that were once part of everyday life and yet now in hindsight are excellent fodder for a retrospective chuckle about how bad things actually were!

If you enjoy discussing "how things used to be" and you have a sense of humour then this book is for you.

Personal favourites include the varied musings on X-Factor, amateur car mechanics, the road atlas, cotton hankies, boys called Keith and retro football.

Loved the book. I took so long to read it because I didn't want to finish. Brought back many memories! As an ex-pat living in the US, it was hard sometimes to explain to my American friends why I was laughing so hard. Waiting for the follow up please. I have recommended it to all my Brit friends - told my husband he wouldn't understand, but may try it out on him. You could have a US best seller on your hands!

This book should come with a warning as you'll get plenty of funny looks for laughing out loud while reading it. It is a hilarious trip down memory lane and whilst you might not agree with every selection the author makes it is impossible not to enjoy his humourous take on life. This is a well written first book which leaves you hoping it isn't the author's last.
