Overview

One of the most well-loved and best-selling British humor titles of all time

"Canute began by being a Bad King on the advice of his Courtiers, who informed him (owing to a misunderstanding of the Rule Britannia) that the King of England was entitled to sit on the sea without getting wet."

This humorous "history" is a book that has itself become part of the UK's history. The authors made the claim that "All the History you can remember is in the Book," and, for most Brits, they were probably right. But it is their own unique interpretation of events that has made the book a classic; an uproarious satire on textbook history and a population's confused recollections of it.

    Incredibly funny!

    This book is hilarious, and the authors should probably be locked away...

    This Book is a true classic

    I have read this book several times over the years. I am delighted to see that is available as an e-book so that is will be available to everyone as the hard copy is hard to come by. It is highly entertaining and provides "food for thought" also.

    Dull and dim

    If you are expecting wit along the lines of Monty Python or Uncle Figg, forget it.
    Didn't so much as chuckle at any of this plodding, witless, completely unfunny drivel.
