5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift! 6 April 2011
By dt2008 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought "A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi" while on vacation in England, and I was pleased to see the US also has this series of informative English-language books! I got this one as a gift for a friend who speaks English as a second language, and I am sure it will be loved.

There are cute doodles and the terms chosen are ubiquitous enough that it will be useful to both native and second-language-learner speakers of English. The binding is very sound, but the cover is a waxy feel hardback, not at all like the lovely, natural cloth binding from the UK-versions of the series--this was slightly disappointing.

On a side note, this a great "coffee table" book.
