9780099532866: 8 Out of 10 Brits: Intriguing and useless statistics about the world's 79th largest nation

A light-hearted, whistlestop tour of today’s Britain, done entirely through statistics and survey results.

In 8 out of 10 Brits, Charlie Crocker paints a quirkily numerical portrait of Britain. Full of surprising facts about who they are, fascinating information about what they do, and revealing figures about how they’ve changed, this is the essential companion to British life.

• The British consume at least double the per capita quantity of baked beans eaten by any other nationality

• By early 2005 there were more mobile phones in the UK than people — at least 60 million

• The divorce rate in 2007 was the lowest in 30 years
