Format: Paperback
An interesting, funny, and well researched book about American culture. It certainly taught me a lot about it. I would recommend this one, instead of one like Culture Shock! USA by Esther Wanning - which is the opposite.
I would also recommend this book to Americans, to read how some foreigners would see the country. It's like them holding a mirror up. Apparently this book is out of print, which is a pity. So, it won't be updated. Still, it tells a lot.

Format: Hardcover
Coping with America by Peter Trudgill (1982, 1985, 1988) is an excellent book that is both hillarious - funny and insightful to the American reader. I would recommend this book to the American reader as a way to learn more about ourselves as Americans from the perspective of the British. I will warn you, though, that the book is very much outdated, so don't expect to find references related to modern life since the 1980s such as the computer, Internet, cell phones, reality television, Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, gameboy or Nintendo, CD and DVD, airport security, airline e-tickets (Internet), September 11 (2001), and so on. I am interested in an updated version of this book, collaborated perhaps with someone living in the states such as Christopher Davies from "Divided by a Common Language."
