Description


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 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-Think has been updated to reflect changes in political, cultural, and social trends, and includes new chapters on cultural icons Oprah Winfrey and Bridget Jones, and on Brit-cool vs. Ameri-cool.

About the Author


Jane Walmsley was born in Pittsburgh, but has lived in England for more than twenty years, where she works as a television broadcaster, producer, and journalist. She is married to a Brit, who is undoubtedly the source of much of her insight into the British character.
