From the Back Cover
Before New York Times bestselling author Bill Bryson wrote The Road to Little Dribbling, he took this delightfully irreverent jaunt around the unparalleled floating nation of Great Britain, which has produced zebra crossings, Shakespeare, Twiggie Winkie&;s Farm, and places with names like Farleigh Wallop and Titsey.

The big downside for me though is the common use of profane, vulgar language. I wanted to give this book to a friend as a gift, but reading swear words on every page is a no-no.
Is it really so difficult to use humour without swearing?
From reading this book, I've now added Harrogate and Durham to my list of places I'd like to visit one day. I'm not prepared to part with Bryson just yet, so have already downloaded Down Under.
All in all, it does feature some good insight into the UK, but it didn't entertain me as much as some of his other books.
