    I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. Thanks to the authors and Goodreads for the book. I just got this book today and have already had a blast going through it and reading the definitions of many British slang words that I had wondered about! The Cockney rhyming slang is particularly difficult to understand and fun to read about. There are also chapters for slang from other areas besides London and a list of interesting place names.

    My mother, who knows what an Anglophile I am, gave me this funny little book. It's really designed for the American who watches British television, but is also useful for reading British books or even interacting with British people. I spent about an hour going through it looking at various entries, and while it's heavy on sexual associations (what slang repertoire isn't?), it also includes many words I've come across in reading and not known quite what they meant. There are even sections that t My mother, who knows what an Anglophile I am, gave me this funny little book.

There are even sections that translate the most common Cockney, Scottish, West Country, and Yorkshire slang. Jonathan Thomas really "knows his onions" and his book is "the dog's bollocks."

    Very helpful and informative, however it was not edited very well so it is full of spelling and grammatical errors.

    Extremely comprehensive book. Has subsections on Cockney slang, Scottish words, and Australian expressions, among others. Very useful for Americans into watching PBS or the Beeb.
