I received the second book (Sexually I'm More of a Switzerland) as a Christmas present a few years ago and I have been searching for this book ever since - many thanks to the Amazon seller! I have to say I think the second book is funnier, perhaps because the writers were aware they could be published?
Anyway, if you want to see the neuroses of the English of a certain age and intellectual leaning look no further!
