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.
Not a bad use of a credit exactly, but the essays as a whole failed to hold my interest completely. "Y" - where he felt empathy for the "alienation" of the violent youths who'd beaten up him and his cameraman (and smashed their equipment) - was about the limit for me, after he'd injected his political views in earlier chapters. Really 2.5 stars overall, your mileage may vary.
