How to be an Alien Summary


How to be an Alien: A Handbook for Beginners and Advanced Pupils by George Mikes

George Mikes says, 'the English have no soul; they have the understatement instead.' But they do have a sense of humour - they provide it by buying over three hundred thousand copies of a book that took them quietly and completely apart, a book that really took the Mikes out of them.
