The Septic's Companion: A Mercifully Brief Guide to British Culture and Slang
Written by a Brit, the Septic's Companion is a sarcastic guide to the Queen's English and the British way of life. Two-thirds of the book is a simple A to Z dictionary of Britishisms; the rest is devoted to the author's delusional rants about a selection of other topics which may confuse visitors to the U.K. These include, but are not limited to: eating, drinking, weights and measures, currency, education and transport.
It is ideal for anyone who is relocating to the U.K., or dating a limey, or working with Brits, or watches British television programmes, or once went to a British pub, or has at some point in their life owned any item which came from Britain. Also, it is an excellent Christmas gift.
