Hilarious! Plus I learned a lot about Britain

I've been living in Britain for a very long time and I thought I understood this country. This book taught me otherwise (in a good way). The author who's also narrating the book is talking about 26 topics, one for each letter of the alphabet. Have you ever wondered about the parks in the UK, or toilets, or cheese?? This book will help you understand why things are the way they are in Britain.

Prepare to have your prejudices challenged

Would you consider the audio edition of Britain etc. to be better than the print version?

Since Mark Easton is a broadcast journalist, his reading of his own book is immaculate. He brings to life each chapter and challenges any preconception you might have on each subject tackled. You get the impression that as a book it is written as a series of radio essays.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Britain etc.?

Each chapter tackles a different aspect of an A-Z of British life with those on Knives and Poverty particularly enlightening not only for what they tell us on the subjects, but for how we react to them.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What you think you know about Britain is wrong.
