Summary

British and American people have many cultural characteristics that at first glance may seem similar and even the same, and there are also some rather extreme and interesting differences. Examining the contrasts and similarities between these two fascinating world cultures will give readers more practical and useful knowledge than can be achieved by studying either British or American culture by itself.
 
Readers worldwide appreciate Professor Drake’s friendly, conversational English-language writing style. Never academic or boring, Professor Drake writes about cultural differences with a sense of humor and insight developed over a lifetime of international living and learning.
 
The author is a retired American professor of international business management at the University of Texas, a world-traveler and experienced expatriate, a valued consultant to multi-national corporations, and a respected author of a 30-volume library on building and managing cross-cultural relationships.

    When a chilling discovery is made in one of the manor’s greenhouses, the Frog End villagers rely on the Colonel to reluctantly solve another baffling mystery.
    
    Following the untimely death of her mother, Ursula Swynford, Ruth Harvey has taken over the manor in Frog End, where she runs a successful plant-selling business and provides gardening therapy for an increasing number of her husband Dr Tom Harvey’s troubled patients: embittered Lawrence Deacon, lonely Joyce Reed, widowed Tanya Carberry and wheelchair-bound Johnny Turner, the young victim of a horrific motorbike crash.
    
    Gardening at the manor quickly becomes a much-needed lifeline for the group, and all seems to be going well – until the major stumbles across a body among the tomato plants in one of the greenhouses. Once again, the manor is the scene of a brutal murder – and, once again, the Colonel reluctantly finds himself drawn into solving the mystery.

    While many Indian joke books are jokes themselves, this book avoids the pitfalls by its professional approach towards compilation, rewriting and editing. The book comprises the world’s best adult medical jokes, quips, quotes and humour. Bold and bawdy lines that don’t make it between the covers of joke books in India make an appearance here. Unlike many joke books that are a start-to-finish affair without categorisation, this book is divided into 21 chapters that facilitate easy reading. The chapters include: Nurses, Surgeons, Gynaecologists, Sex Therapists, Viagra, AIDS, Veterinarians, Optometrists, Limericks, Wisecracks and a Medical Glossary, amongst others. This book is not meant for those whose sensibilities are easily hurt or people with an ill-developed sense of humour. But for those who love non-vegetarian fare of medical humour, this book is just what the doctor prescribed! #v&spublishers
