Have you ever... Got into a four-hour argument over what does and does not belong in a full English breakfast?

Tea, coffee, water?' with 'Lovely, thanks'? ...then you may (still) be suffering from VERY BRITISH PROBLEMS. Rob Temple is back to guide you through the maze of idiosyncrasies, loveable foibles and - let's admit - outright eccentricities that define this sceptred isle. Featuring groundbreaking original research from his @soverybritish Twitter account (spoiler: 84% of Brits prefer milk in first), this book may not be a remedy for your incurable VBPs, but it will certainly provide amusement as you hide in the loo from an unexpected visitor.

DO YOU SUFFER FROM VERY BRITISH PROBLEMS ABROAD? If you... *Carry emergency teabags in your money belt *Quietly tut at badly formed 'queues' *Cleverly avoid blisters by wearing socks with your sandals ...then you may have a serious problem for which there is no know vaccination. But don't worry: Rob Temple is here to explain the symptoms/make fun of you. (In the nicest possible way.) Critics called the first Very British Problems book 'not bad' and 'easy to gift-wrap', so in an attempt to outdo himself, Rob's taking us outside of our comfort zone. We're going to that alarming place where crisps don't quite taste the same and where ordering chips get you... well, crisps. We're going abroad. From the optimum number of times to carry out panicky pre-trip passport checks to the horror of returning home to a milkless house, this is an affectionate into the cultural quirks and strange obessions that make us all so very British - especially when we leave the country.
