Product Description

You'll love this because...

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

  • Your chosen name appears on the cover
  • Write a special message on the title page
  • Name appears at top of every page
  • 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).
