In this completely revised and updated edition of international bestseller WATCHING THE ENGLISH, anthropologist Kate Fox takes a revealing look at the quirks, habits and foibles of the English people.

Now with new survey data to add weight to her original fieldwork findings, and more extensive field-research and experiments to back up earlier observations, Kate Fox has deciphered yet more enigmatic behaviour codes, adding new rules, new subcultures, new chapters and over 100 updates. If you're English, this new edition of Kate Fox's acclaimed international bestseller will make you stand back and re-examine everything you take for granted – and if you aren't English you'll finally understand all our peculiar little ways.

WATCHING THE ENGLISH has sold more than half a million copies and has been translated into many languages. Not only a worldwide bestseller, but also a set text for university anthropology courses, WATCHING THE ENGLISH has been widely praised as a revealing and entertaining dissection of the English national character.

Entertaining, but I am not sure all of it is true.

Painfully Accurate Observation

Some of the observations about “the English” have had me laughing out loud. These are instantly recognisable by “us” but must be terribly confusing and difficult for anyone else to comprehend, let alone learn

Just wonderful

As a naturalised Brit, I found this both witty and practical. It explained many silly puzzles. It appreciates the absurdity of so many little customs in England. It is un-English to “gush”, sorry, but this is a gem.

Really good, funny read.

Very entertainingly written – I read this with a smile on my face. A serious study but well written with a wry and beady eye for the foibles of this nation.

funny but real

I love this book. everything that didn’t make sense about the English, now does. really good sense of humour as well. If you want to understand a bit more about the English, you must read this book.
