Speak the Culture: Britain: Be Fluent in British Life and Culture
I really enjoyed this volume. It's not meant to be read straight through- best to read a chapter or two at a time and digest the information. (ok, I read fast) A quick look at different aspects of British culture ranging from the basic history of the nation to literature, fashion, and more, you get a solid foundation from which you can seek out more knowledge as you desire. Some of the margin notes are hysterical. The author had/has a good sense of humor.
