Reviews

  • "One of his best books"

    Scott Bradfield, Independent
  • "Delightful bite-size essays that exude affection while debunking the ridiculous with wonderful succinctness... This is not a book to be read in a single sitting. It is one to be savoured"

    Martin Fletcher, The Times
  • "Bill Bryson's answer to Alistair Cooke's Letter From America...not only hilarious but also insightful and informative"

    Jeremy Atiyah, Independent on Sunday
  • "Bryson is great when explaining the idiosyncracies of America to middle England and making it funny... He is both serious and contemtuously funny"
