    A good book

    This book provides great information. It is good for kids and teens who are bored and don't have anything to do.

    The British are media crazed

    As the title states, perfectly useless with absolutely no pun intended. A disappointment. Mostly focuses on present-day or former celebrities... superficial after-taste.
