Reviews - What do customers think about The Xenophobe's Guide to the Scots?
Good book, worth reading Aug 21, 2005
This guide made some interesting points, such as the idea Scots like being noted for both fiery tempers and dour dispositions. I would gladly read the author's book of Scottish insults, since those were some of the best things about the book.
Illuminating, entertaining look at what makes the Scots tick Mar 30, 2002
As a Scot myself I can vouch for the uncanny accuracy of this book. A sympathetic (but not unquestioning), highly entertaining, accurate, and short book which explains what makes the Scots tick and also explains some the qualities that have helped them make a contribution to so many other countries where they have settled.
