Anglophile

I love reading what other people think of my country, especially when they're good thoughts.

Bryson's comment on a visit to the UK is funny and reassuring. He is a self confessed anglophile and it really makes you realise that our little Island isn't all bad.

This books is full of funny anecdotes that sum up the British sensibility, one particular character who he terms 'Mrs Smegma'; a stuffy old B&B owner is particularly hilarious.

While it is a travel book in essentials, I recommend this book to any Brit who's confidence in the Isles is waning. It'll give you a temporary boost.
