The incredible response from readers of the first volume went a long way towards helping write this one. Perhaps my favourite was from Vietnam: ‘The animal, the weapon, the explosives, inflammable and prostitutes aren't allowed in the hotel.' The Sunday Telegraph called it ‘a perfect book for the loo.' People always apologise for saying that about one of my Charlie Croker books. Don't know why - it's the ultimate compliment.


‘As amusing as its predecessor, unashamedly exposing language manglers.' Daily Record
