How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Packed with facts and razor-sharp observations, Sorry, I'm British! is hilarious and informative in equal measure. From small-talk to superiority, from the famous stiff upper lip to the infamous football hooliganism, this book will take you through the sometimes sarcastic, often poetic, generally polite, never boastful, but universally proud realm of all that's British. Discover the fate of a pitbull named ASBO, find out exactly why we get bank holidays when we do, and learn why it's better to drive on the left with this mini encylopedia of British behaviour. Peppered with illustrations from the legendary British cartoonist Ed McLachlan (Punch, Private Eye, The Spectator), this is the perfect book for a nation that loves to laugh at itself.
