About the Author

Dr Cameron McPhail is a once-staid banker turned humorist. After stints in academia and Scottish Enterprise, he joined the Royal Bank of Scotland and rose to be Chief Executive of Wealth Management. He left after falling out with the somewhat notorious Fred the Shred and took to writing joke books as a form of therapy.

A fine body of work. Some is written in phonetic Scottish, like Trainspotting, which adds to the whole immersion thang. An excellent loo book: easy to pick up and read something to tickle your diaphragm. Considering this setting, it also has the advantage of a wipeable plastic cover and absorbant pages. The author appears to have thought of everything. Perhaps he will now change his name to Cameron McSucceed. Oh dear...sorry!

This book shows the Scottish sense of humour at its best. The Scots have a great wit but are also very capable of laughing at themselves. In particular, I have found this an excellent present for Scottish ex-pats who still have a large part of their hearts in the homeland.

I can highly recommend this product.

Format: Paperback
At first sight an amusing but quirky bit of self-deprecation of the Scottish nation by one of its many "best and brightest" that have chosen to live elsewhere.The distance away seems to enhance the comedy and pathos of a love/hate relationship that is reflected in this very funny book;particularly if the reader has some prior knowledge of the widely held misconceptions of cultural life in Scotland from popular television and film .That is from the point of view of an ex pat Englishman, who wonders what such a test may be set for his own country,by way of contrast.Like all of this genre,it is variable in its ability to entertain and amuse,but more than enough good material to pass the time on a journey back to Scotland from anywhere in the British Isles.And a great primer for the sort of people and culture that is to be found on arrival....if visiting the wrong places.But it can be read and digested on many levels,so is more than a "quick read and pass on "type of work.And it exemplifies the good value for which the Scottish nation is renowned.

I have always loved Scottish slang so this book is right up my street. The sections written in slang are my favourite, and if you're anything like me you'll love the new Scottish words throughout this book. Banjo Bailie and his associates have me laughing every time they appear! Definitely worth a purchase, everyone Scotsman should own a copy!

This is an excellent read - one that you can't put down, but equally one you can pick up anytime for a real laugh. It is written with great wit and wisdom, by someone who has excellent powers of observation - highly recommended.

Live in the same area as the author and somehow procured one of the original self-printed A4 booklet versions. This is the same but scaled down (in size, not content). This book is extremely witty, it has banter and humour covering all parts of Scotland and while a few of the ideas may be known to you (if you're funny or hang around with funny people) much of it will be new to you.

A great read, and not a one-off, you'll find yourself taking a little look here and there when you fancy some light relief or (in my case) feel homesick. Solved my 'little extra gift' dilemma for Christmas 2012 :-) even managed to stumble into the bookshop when the author was there and got signed copies.

A brilliant concept, the author clearly has a fantastic imagination. I passed the book around at a dinner party last weekend and we all had a good time asking each other questions in thick Glaswegian accents! I particularly enjoyed the Glasgow vs Edinburgh language, given that my wife is from the capital. Well done Cameron McPhail!

Well move over fifty shades of grey ...this will make the best seller list! A great wee book that kept me highly amused. Will be buying a couple for stocking fillers for Christmas.
