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

Hardback official spoof Haynes manual
Add a luxury gift box for a thoughtful finishing touch
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 personalized 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 personalization 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 personalization wrong over the phone.
How to Personalize “The British” Manual
Personalize with any name up to 12 characters, and a personal message of two lines, up to 80 characters.
Check your personalization: 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 personalized parody guides and measure 13.2 x 9.2 inches (L x W).
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!

Funny, links well to the subject and wrapped in an appealing box.
Cannot fault the service overall. They had to redo the book as there was a defect but customer service were so easy to contact and they resolved the issue in a few hours. Agree with some others, it would be nice to have a tracking code for Royal Mail but received an email telling me my book is on the way so I knew roughly to expect it in a few days. Overall can't fault the service.
