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.
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.
