At it best! The British have a fabulous knack of being able to poke fun at themselves in a way that makes them magic. This book is a master class in British humour.
Read it enjoy it and recommend it to someone else. A cracking read with a chuckle on every page!

Ben Crystal's book, with its wry observations about British life and what British people do, produces many a nodding acknowledgement and a smile of recognition.

Rather disapointing and indifferent.... just a collection of badly written snippets... no real focus or style or sense of either humour or outrage. A waste of money frankly... it went straight off to the Oxfam bookshop.

I was surprised at times, astonished at others, laughed out loudly, frowned,in fact I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
Highly recommended reading to all Britons and the rest of the world, too!

As others have pointed out, this book is not as witty as you might expect from its title or cover, but I did find it quite informative (even after 7 years in the UK). (Okay, that was one tiny compliment.)

I bought this book for my dad for Christmas and we poured over it when he opened it on Christmas day. I had to pipe up in disagreement with the other review on this site because I think completely the opposite. In fact after seeing how much my dad enjoyed reading it, I got it for a couple of my uncles for their birthdays when they happen later this year. What I like are the details in the illustrations - and the fact that it is irreverent and silly, but also strikingly on the ball. A really good affordable gift for anyone who has a sense of humour and self-deprecation - so anyone British!

This book was interesting detailing many aspects of british life i hadnt previously considered but at the same time was very long winded and took a long time to get through. I feel it goes into too much detail and there arent enough witty comments to provide balance for the facts
