    [synopsis] => From the author of Confessions of a Bookseller, a cankerous and darkly funny field guide to bookstore customers.

It does take all kinds and through the misanthropic eyes of a very grumpy bookseller, we see them all. There's the Expert (with subspecies from the Bore to the Helpful Person), the Young Family (ranging from the Exhausted to the Aspirational), Occultists (from Conspiracy Theorist to Craft Woman).

Then there's the Loiterer (including the Erotica Browser and the Self-Published Author), the Bearded Pensioner (including the Lycra Clad), the The Not-So-Silent Traveler (the Whistler, Sniffer, Hummer, Farter, and Tutter), and the Family Historian (generally Americans who come to Shaun's shop in Wigtown, Scotland).

Don't forget the Person Who Doesn't Know What They Want (But Thinks It Might Have a Blue Cover) and the harried Parents Secretly After Free Childcare. Two bonus sections include Staff and, finally, Perfect Customer-all add up to one of the funniest books about books you'll ever find.

Shaun Bythell and his mordantly unique observational eye make this perfect for anyone who loves books and bookshops.
