    Humorous but lots of editing errors.

    A fascinating insight into dating/mating rituals in the West (primarily the UK). It's a history book and packed with interesting and revealing detail. The author has a breezy and accessible style and makes the subject both compelling and amusing. This would be a great gift or even a good beach read (for those of you that hang about in a horizontal fashion on sand).

    Insightful and frightfully amusing. As the author is British, the book has a basis in the culture of her own country. Would love to read similar equivalents of other countries around the world.
