I spotted this in one of my local bookshops and was intrigued by the amazing definition of the word “Innit” that was located on the book cover.

This book takes some of the most famous aspects of Britishness, including tea, crumpets and Queen Elizabeth II and describes them in a hilarious yet strangely informative way. It is one of the few books I have ever read that has made me laugh audibly in a public place (on the bus).

This hilarious journey through Britain is amazingly written by a very intelligent man who has a unique gift for being able to provide some very interesting information, but also be incredibly funny in the process. I would recommend this to anyone who has had enough of depressing fiction and needs a book that makes them giggle. It would also make an ideal Christmas gift.
