Review

Had us guffawing into our Earl Grey tea (Bella)

My favourite twitter account at the moment is Very British Problems (@soverybritish) . . . it makes me laugh out loud. (Tom Hiddleston on @soverybritish)

Hilarious (Daily Express)

Temple pays affectionate and comic homage to the sheer quirkiness of being British (Good Book Guide)

A corking Christmas stocking filler (Weekend Sport)

Excellent read. Humorous to see how the author nailed down aspects of my personality. I am most definitely a sufferer of VBP who unfortunately finds himself attempting to survive life as an American. I was born in the wrong country :( If it wouldn't be too much of a bother, could I come live with you guys?

I read this in one day. My only (unreasonable) complaint would be that it didn't last longer (I am British, I must make a small and unimportant complaint. If you give me a rainbow I'll probably opine that it's a bit too showy). Because this book grew out of a Twitter account, it naturally is short and sweet. If you've been following the Twitter account - @soverybritish - you'll love this. If you haven't, have a look and if you're amused then you will enjoy this book. My Favourite chapter is chapter 21 - language barriers.
Another great thing about this book is that it sparks off your awareness of your own very british problems. Examples from my life are:

Using "Thank you for your input" to mean you've already disregarded whatever piffle someone said.

Feeling you've been massively over familiar by using "Kindest regards".

Maybe if we send more of our very British problems to @soverybritish we'll get another book next Christmas. I hope so :)

This book is a tonic! Downloaded it on the train, then spent the journey wheezing with laughter and wiping tears from my eyes. Raced home and finished it the same evening. Would recommend to all my fellow Brits. Bloody brilliant! I am exhausted from laughing!

I was prompted to buy this book after following 'very british problems' on twitter. Quite amusingly and worryingly I can relate to so many of the problems. Whenever anyone picks a copy up they sit there chuckling away. very good!

Love the Twitter feed so I knew I'd be buying the book when it was announced. It's ridiculously funny and sadly, pretty much all true. Basically everyone I know is getting this for Christmas this year.

I gave this to my brother-in-law for Christmas because he seems to encounter a 'very British problem' on a daily basis. He hadn't got it out of the wrapping for more than a minute before he was chortling away in the corner. Thoroughly recommended.

I'd been following on twitter for a while and decided to get the book as I didn't get it for Christmas. It is funny, so true and awfully British - can pretty much relate to it all, and will definitely keep going back for a chuckle ;-)
