Why do we Brits apologise for everything? We apologise for brushing past another person’s arm or walking into a lamppost or street sign. Elton John was wrong. “Sorry seems to be the hardest word” does not apply to Brits. If you’ve ever been puzzled by our nation, clearly, so have we. That’s why this personalised Haynes Explains “The British” manual is so enlightening. There’s finally a philosophy (or rather a how-to for dummies) to understand why we are they way we are.
Of course, to make this manual truly British, you have to add a name to the cover and along the top of each page. You know us Brits, we love a good souvenir with our name on it. To take the personalisation one step further, you can even add a message to the inside page. And even though us Brits love a queue, personalising this book couldn’t be more simple. You do it all online with a few clicks, avoiding human contact altogether, because, heaven forbid we have to even consider apologising for getting a bit of personalisation wrong over the phone.
How to Personalise “The British” 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).
In The Book wouldn’t be here without its terrific customers. That’s why we care about what you have to say.
We’re constantly researching new materials to create more personalised books, so what you think matters! Tell us your feedback. From finding the book you were looking for to how easy your chosen book was to personalise – every little detail is important, so we can perfect your shopping experience the next time you return!
