Summary

In the last 100 years mankind has split the atom, walked on the moon and broken the sound barrier but... we havenít got any better at making biscuits. The nation's favourite biscuit, McVitieís Chocolate Digestive, was first baked in 1892. This is just one of the fascinating facts you will find in The Nationís Favourite. What is the UKís favourite karaoke song, or wedding first dance song? What is our favourite cereal, painkiller, pet or garden tool? The Nationís Favourite brings together 220 lists which provide the answers to these questions and many more. The result is amusing, surprising and reveals a fascinating picture of the tastes and habits of the UK population.
