Haynes car manufacturers help you understand “Americans” in this spoof manual!

Hardback official spoof Haynes manual
Add a luxury gift box for a thoughtful finishing touch
It’s not easy being American. It’s so confusing that Haynes has created a spoof guide to help everyone comprehend just what’s going on. Yes, Haynes car manufacturers have swapped cars for the mystery that is the USA and this personalised Haynes Explains Americans manual is a gift of British comedy. Sure, the usual flowcharts and diagrams are in there, echoing Haynes’ iconic ‘strip-down and rebuild’ books, but there’s also incredibly useful advice: “If a friend asks you to lend them money for plastic surgery, think carefully. You won’t know who to look for to get your money back.”.
Ripe with British humour on every page, this book can be personalised with the individual’s name on the cover and featured along the top of each page. As you can add a message on the title page, how about leaving the recipient with this unnerving thought: “Americans… believe that British people still sit around in bowler hats having tea and cucumber sandwiches at exactly 4pm.”. Actually, most of us are still at work by 4pm but from 5pm, it’s happy hour all around.
How to Personalise the “Americans” Manual
Personalise with any name up to 12 characters, and a personal message of two lines, up to 80 characters.
Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated. Please be advised our Haynes spoofs are not the same size as Haynes car manuals. The books are personalised parody guides and measure 20.2 x 15.1 x 0.8cm (L x W x D).

The personalised books are a wonderful way of giving a truly personal gift to someone
Great product but shocking customer service. Ordered newspaper and puzzle book at the beginning of the month. Straight after ordering I noticed a mistake with the wording on the certificate. No option to amend order, as it was out of hours so I used their contact form to ask for the issue to be sorted prior to dispatch. Product arrived 4 days later and the issue had not been fixed. A whole 12 days after I initially got in contact I received an email stating that since my order has been dispatched they could not rectify it. If I was asking for a whole replacement order then fair enough but I was only asking for the wording to be changed on the A5 certificate. I was going to order some other products however with the poor customer service I've received I'll look elsewhere.
