9780007717040: GRUMPY OLD MEN - A MANUAL FOR THE BRITISH MALCONTENT

At last! A comprehensive, handy guide for the misery-guts in your life. Are you an irritable, crabby, cantankerous, malcontented old grump? Well relax, because you're not alone. Grumpy Old Men is an annotated, cross-referenced and fully illustrated manual for malcontents everywhere: the comprehensive Gripes of Wrath. A compilation of gripes and grumbles, illustrated with blood-boiling images such as derailed trains and traffic wardens throughout. The next time you find yourself enraged by pointless speed bumps, overcrowded trains, ill-mannered drivers, irritating adverts, inefficient customer help-lines, overbooked airlines, inconsiderate cyclists, slow-moving caravans, extortionate bank charges, persistent charity collectors, mindless hotel muzak, unfunny clowns or just plain miserable British weather, let this book take the strain. The ultimate in stress-relief for the 21st-Century Grouch.

Review:

Praise for Grumpy Old Men: 'I am in fact a grumpy old man. Or at least that is now my firm suspicion, so much ranting, railing, and mirthful thigh-slapping did I do while reading this malcontents' manual.' Daily Mail 'David Quantick wittily hits the mark' The Observer 'David Quantick's Grumpy Old Men takes a well-executed pop at everything from customer help-lines to hotel muzak, "charity muggers" and greetings cards.' The Times 'An indispensable guide to the whiner in us all.' The Sun 'When it comes to top honours, then, a qualified nod in favour of David Quantick's new Grumpy Old Men.' The Western Daily Press
