Justin Webb is a presenter on Radio Four's Today programme. He was previously the BBC's North America editor and he has spent the last eight years shaping and leading the BBC's coverage of the US and its neighbours. He lives in London with his wife and their three children.
"If you want to know what makes Americans tick, read this book. Webb knows America - and it shows." John Humphrys "Not since Charles Wheeler has the BBC had as fine an American correspondent. His perceptive reporting has been a joy." The Times "Webb's take on the two great nations is expert, familiar, profound, funny" --Jeremy Vine "Webb was the BBC's North American editor for eight years. Here he straddles the Pond to explore the tectonic shifts between Britain and America, and why, even if they rub each other up the wrong way, the two nations are inextricably linked." The Times "Webb offers a fun look at politics." The Catholic Herald
