    Hugely enjoyable book for anyone who loves reading about class Sadly I do It confirmed some of my own prejudices I knew I was right about air fresheners It also needed a paragraph on fabric conditioner though I fall between classes; an odd mixture of Wood Burning Stover and Asda Mum You'll meet these in this book along wit

    On the one hand an acutely observed competently written and occasionally fascinating look at the reinvention of class in modern Britain and a thoughtful take on how data based decisions by retailers are shaping an

    Class It is the system in the UK that has been with us for 1000 years or The Now Show summed it up by asking people of each class what they called the space outside their back door; Working class call it the yard middle class call it the garden and the upper class call it Devon This system with it's unwritten rules to catch those

    A highly enjoyable read which offers me a chuckle in places but definitely not a sociological look at class If you fancy a laugh at your own behaviour and that of the people you share society with then this is good non fiction fodder to snuggl

    Hilariously true The conventional class system has been blurred and makes little sense In an age of conspicuous consumption

    Happy and proud to be a wood burning stover and the descriptions pretty much sum me up Think you would only appreciate this book if you were in the UK Perfectly fine book and think his conclusions are uite accurate

    An enticing take on the intricacies of statistics demographics and the convoluted minute details of the class system in modern Britain Not counting the many books on Psychology I have to read for work I probably have not read a non fiction book absolutely fascinating than this one since Jeremy Paxman's The English and in the same way perhaps it is precisely because I am a foreigner living in Britain for 25 years and still tryin
