The English : A Field Guide, Paperback

The English : A Field Guide Paperback



A hilarious field guide to the world's most remarkable and unusual creatures: the English.

Thanks to television documentaries by Bruce Parry and David Attenborough, we are better acquainted with the hunting rituals of the San bushmen and the mating habits of Papua New Guinean tribes than we are with the everyday lives of that most peculiar of species - the English.

In 'The English: A Field Guide', Sunday Times journalist Matt Rudd, sets out to uncover what makes us, the English, tick.

He will examine us in our natural habitats, starting with the living room and moving out to the kitchen, the garden, the commuter train, the office, the motorway, the high street, the sports stadium, the pub, club, bingo hall, balti house, beach and ending up in the bedroom.

Hilarious, warm-hearted and surprisingly enlightening, 'The English' shines a strong searchlight on us all.
