Holger Ehling came to England first at the age of thirteen, to learn English, and has visited this country many time since then. He has worked in many different parts of the world as a journalist and lived, as he tells us, like Edgar Allen Poe before him, in Stoke Newington. On the whole "Finding England" is a worthwhile and often highly informative guide to English life and culture and I enjoyed it. I could spot no obvious or important errors other than a curious reference to a Nineteenth century artist called Mallard on page 248, which I think is an editorial slip and may simply be J.M.W. Turner's middle name put in the wrong place.
There is a good bibliography and a comprehensive index.
One further point: as with all Haus publications the book is beautifully produced, with an elegant typeface (Garamond), and printed on high quality paper.
