A "must" for understanding the English,
This review is from: How to be an Alien: A Handbook for Beginners and Advanced Pupils (Paperback)
George Mikes' little book about the English is as funny and relevant today as it was when it was published back in 1946. The writing and humour are both exquisite, and his contrasts between the supposed behaviour of "continental" and English types are razor-sharp. Read it, enjoy it, and laugh out loud.
For: an exquisite humorous gem. Against: too short.
