Product description


A godsend to Americans trying to negotiate the minefield of British life.. . -- Kate Fox, authot of Watching the English.


How do you respond to a dinner invitation that said "Eight for eight thirty"? What might induce you to get off a London train at a place called Mud Chute? And why do the Brits keep saying "Who's she, the cat's mother?" "Rules, Britannia" is an invaluable resource for Americans who want to make a smooth transition when visiting or relocating to the UK. It is an entertaining and practical insider's guide containing scores of established do's and don'ts from across the pond that only a Brit would know: showing two fingers doesn't mean "peace" in the UK; when driving, never turn on red and for heaven's sake, keep left; and, don't stress over the salad plate. Covering such essential topics as vocabulary, house or "flat" hunting, business culture, child-rearing, and even relationship etiquette, this book will lessen the anxiety that comes with a trans-Atlantic move or extended visit, while giving the reader a leg up on the advanced communication ladder.
