“Here at last is a survival guide to this extraordinary place and its extraordinary people.  The Whingeing Pom’s Guide to Australia is written by someone who very nearly thought  seriously about going there and is intended to assist those less fortunate in surviving the experience.
Packed with fascinating facts, some of which might almost be true, this book describes, but wisely, makes no attempt to explain such phenomena as Okkers, meat pies, dunnies and the notorious amber fluid.  Thrill to the incredible boredom of the central wastelands, gasp at Australian dress sense and wonder at the state of mind that made you go there at all.”
