From perfectly formed potatoes to adulterous US presidents, and from domestic upsets to millennial fever, Bill Bryson just cannot resist airing his opinions and standing up for his (mostly) law-abiding fellow American citizens. But of course after twenty years in England, he is now back on the other side of the pond, and is obviously having a little trouble finding his true American self again.

After vigorous exercise on the Appalachian Trail comes this edited collection of Bryson's most splenetic comic pieces culled from his humorous regular column in the Mail on Sunday.

'One of his best books.' -- The Independent 'Delightful bite-size essays that exude affection while debunking the ridiculous with wonderful succinctness ... This is not a book to be read in a single sitting. It is one to be savoured.' -- The Times 'Bryson is great when explaining the idiosyncracies of America to middle England and making it funny... He is both serious and contemptuously funny.' -- The Guardian
