How to Be a Brit, reissued for the first time since its original publication in 1986, is the affectionate and comic look at the peculiar nature of the British loved by readers and authors alike.
Delving into such important topics as the weather, tea, how not to be clever (which is considered bad manners) and queueing (according to Mikes, the national passion), the chapter entitled 'Sex' is simply as follows: 'Continental people have sex lives: the English have hot water bottles'.
A portrait of stiff upper lips, scrupulous politeness and curious social codes, How to Be a Brit examines the strange things we do and say. If you're British you'll love it; if you're a foreigner, you'll appreciate it . . .
