5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, 27 Oct. 2004
By 
This review is from: Chav! A User's Guide To Britain's New Ruling Class (Hardcover)
The topic of this book is something I have been talking about for the past 10 years, I saw it coming but no one believed me, how wrong they were. It is now great to see this book and the website associated with it.
They don't truly have the term "chav" nailed down as they include people and settings that are not chav related or solely dedicated to the chav culture. For example the book says that drum and bass is the same as jungle, that is similar to saying Windows NT is the same as Windows 9X or Beta Max is the same as VHS. They may be based on similar things but they are different and are thusly two separate things.
The book also ridicules the Chav inability to spell or perfect English grammar and then proceeds to start sentences with BUT and AND, not something you do if you consider yourself to be in a position to ridicule someone for their bad Grammar, there is also one instance of IT'S being used instead of ITS.
Aside from those small proof reading oversights the book itself is a very pleasurable and an interesting read, especially if you spend most of your life around Oldham, Wakefield and Manchester town centres.....or CHAV LAND SUPREME as they are AKA (I am sure there are more town centres that are infested with drop outs too).
I would say buy this book if you are of the more intelligent ilk (I was served by a chav when I bought this) and see what an embarrassment they really are and if you are a chav (how did you get to this website, computers are for geeks and nerds) then buy the book and see how embarrassing you are to yourselves and everyone who knows you.
The book itself also looks bigger than it actually is. Some of the pages are padded with pictures and dont have much text in them or some pages are dedicated to a small review of everything that has been said in the previous paragraph again using a page that could be better used.
Aside from its faults i'd say get it, it's a great read!

You sound like an absolutely horrible person from the Victorian era ! Oh I was served by a minion the other day .. and oh it was so awful that they were in my presence.. oh sorry darling.. to have breathed in the same room as yourself. You clearly have no love for anyone other than yourself and those who are similar. Good luck to you in your empty life. I am sure you will be married and well loved by someone just as heartless as you..

I was going to care about your comment but I thought to myself, who you let you out to use the Internet. Get back into your cupboard and don't come speak until you are spoken to.

The audacity of some people.
