"The heroine, who begs her parents to send her to a British boarding school at the age of 6 (to her dismay, they refuse) is lovably intelligent yet insanely stubborn when it comes to pursuing her English passion. Eventually she makes it to London and must navigate the murky waters of English social circles and etiquette. A charming story for anyone who feels out of the place in their own country."
"UK journalist Jeremy Paxman never liked the monarchy. How could thinking people in a democracy put up with such an archaic institution? But when Paxman bumps into the Queen at a reception, he is shocked to find that he is a quivering wreck in her presence. How can someone the size and age of his grandmother evoke such nerves and such awe? This is the question that his book sets out to answer."
"Wonderful book - and really easy to read. It simple terms it describes all that is good about the American and English governments can be combined. Very clever and often times, very funny. Perfect for poli-sci buffs that have a bit of an anglophile streak."
