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

Worth every penny/cent spent.

Some repetition, but altogether a really hilarious while still informative read.

The book itself is wonderful, but I don't recommend getting the ebook version - it's very poor in quality and difficult to read on a screen.

I bought this book for my brother for his birthday. He lived in England for two years and misses it all the time. So he was excited to get this book. Having visited only once I get some of the Britishisms, but some are lost on me. However the book is funny regardless if you are British or not. And the little illustrations are great! Very fun book to read and very funny especially for anyone who knows someone British or has been there!

I suspect most of the funniest situations have been shared on the Twitter feed, but if you want them all in one place, this is a sharply
accurate insight into the British psyche. At least, I identified with it, so I'm taking this book as indication that it's not just me who would consider getting off a bus too early (having rung the bell in error) or apologising to someone who's bashed my ankle with their supermarket trolley.
On a minor note, I was disappointed that a major publisher would allow a book to be distributed with easy-to-catch typos. Perhaps Hachette could invest more of their ample resources in quality control and less in public scuffles with Amazon.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Worth every penny/cent spent. Lots of laughs had and if you're a Brit, you will be able to relate to every item in this book.

A book on shyness, good manners and passive agression. Delievered in byte-sized chunks. Humane, and ironic in a very good way.

After forgetting to buy the book while I was in the UK a few weeks ago, I immediately bought it on kindle when I got home. I'd rather have the print version but it's still a brilliant read. I'll just have to go back!
