Is it Just Me or is Everything Shit?: The Encyclopedia of Modern Life
An encylopedic attack on modern culture and the standard reference work for everyone who believes everything is shit. Which it is. Volumes 1 and 2.

Other subjects include David Cameron , James Blunt and ready meals.
If you're not from the United Kingdom don't waste your money. I spent a few years in Europe and found maybe 1/3 of this book entertaining. The rest made no.
