The joke here is that just about everyone's town or nearest city is included in this book. In fact, I think the book is of the 50 most populous cities in the UK. Its very funny and an ideal gift for anyone British - the first thing they will do is thumb through to find out if their town is in it. Then watch their face as either they are amused or get all defensive when reading the criticism of their home town.

You can almost hear Morrissey singing "Everyday Is Like Sunday" as you flick through this book. Though this guide isn't quite as shallow and dismissive as the title suggests. There is plenty of funny and insightful, and more importantly honest comments, thoughts and opinions about many places scattered throughout much of mainland UK. There is a wide selection of incriminating photos to back up the theories and beliefs too. There are also a whole number of delightful names like South Woodham Ferr [...]

Randomly picked a load of towns and chose to slag them off based on hearsay and common folklore. However, it is funny to read and gives a quaint pastiche of the towns mentioned. The Brighton entry is clearly based upon somebody who is trying to formulate an opinion about a town when they have never actually lived in it. Interesting.

not crap enough

Great waste of money. Perhaps when it was published 10 yrs ago it would have been more pertinent, but now, so many years on, not so much.

Very funny book although Faversham is inexplicably omitted.
