Tdated why refer to couples like Brad and Jen or Madonna and Guy which took away from some of the points The chapter on Brit cool vs Ameri cool reminded me of when I was 10 or 12 and my uncle tried to pretend like he understood how Bad was Good you just want to cringe and say By talking about it you ve ruined it This is one of the funniest most accurate books there is on the subject of the cultural connections and misconnections between the US and the UK It is ntertaining but also spot on in its comparisons I read the original which is probably a little dated now that London has changed so much The revised version probably is better In any Technology is making the world a smaller place This is an amusing book but global communication and social networking have Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue erased to a certainxtent some of our differences The differences today are subtle and references to things that happened over a decade ago make the book seem very out of date Nevertheless it is a fun read and revealing insight into the ways American s think I think the British bits might benefit from being written ntirely by a Brit rather than an American who thinks she understands the Brits The author and I have two things in commonWe are both American women married to British menWe both live in the UKAfter reading the book I can only come to Gamut of British American divergences from sex to food from pets to religion from sports to money and from war to most divergent of all humor Entertaining and invaluable Brit Think Ameri.
Most of the info and opinions in this book are pretty dated some just outright strange but it did make me chuckle a few times Great book not only ducational but as well ntertaining I rarely read book in a few days or a few hours I did read this one in a few train ridesTwo thumbs up Altogether a very interesting read I can t obviously comment on the accuracy of the Brit descriptions but for the American ones the majority were spot on Granted the book is dealing with broad generalizations but taken with a hefty dose of reality it was uite amusing Written by an American who is married to a Brit this is a fun informative guide to the differences in British and American attitudes covering cuteness and coziness aspirations Oprah food what s cool and hot humor religion pets and This revised dition is copyright 2003 so many of the pop culture references are of course outdated Time for a new dition perhaps Hilarious Or shall I say brilliant I laughed myself silly with this book Of course it helped that we have friends and colleagues who are British The comparisons are great and the observations about American culture are very amusing If you don t know someone who is British it might not be as funny This was mostly funny but sometimes a little off in the analysis I would have liked it but it was obviously ou. When it comes to understanding the great cultural ocean that divides Brits and Yanks it's not just our vocabulary but also our attitudes that differ This irreverent guide surveys a whole.
He conclusion that Jane Walmsley lives in a very different world from the average Brit and American I seriously doubt that Ms Walmsley has ver mixed Threads Of The Shroud extensively with the averagestate dwelling British citizen which has led her to write a very unhelpful and inaccurate book She spends far too much time trying to sanitize life in the UK and make it appear uaint Of course she may very well know the truth but will not dare to write about it for fear that her windows will be put out with bricks and her car petrol bombed If you want an accurate portrayal of the British mentality AVOID THIS BOOK Brit Think Ameri think by Jane Walmsley was recommended to me by the British bookstore in my local town which we visited before our trip to the UK where we currently are The book doesn t focus so much on the differences in language but rather on the differences in culture between the UK and the US This book was really funny Even though though some of her references were pretty outdated like Brad and Jen a lot of her commentary was spot on for both British and American behavior I wouldn t take it as complete gospel but it does shed a little light on why the Brits I ve met act the way they do I d recommend it for anyone going across the pond for the first time ither direction SuBC bookstore rec and post a review 25 points.
