Andy Roddick's favourite book is Angels & Demons because he's a "history buff"?!

Andy Roddick only picked Angels and Demons because the movie had just come out and he heard it was based on a book. Roddick's the quintessential fratboy.

The Power of the Present Moment

It sounds like a self-help book.

I find him pleasant to read. You may have a point about about the complexity of his works, but it's still a good reading experience.

I agree wholeheartedly about Dan Brown though.

I read it when I was 15 and even then found it like almost a viper "philosophical" fairytale.But then again I'm very difficult in my literature taste.Never read any more Coehlo though,like 11 mins or Veronica decided to die..though they became huge bestsellers.Figured it wasn't worth my time when there are so many really good books out there.

My native language isn't english, but I'm sure I would do a better job pronouncing 'book' than Jamie Murray does in the first sentence.

I really LOVE the Nadal part in the car-favourites. He has absolutely no clue about what car, and then says dead serious, or so it seems that Kia is really good, believe me. And then after that the reporter isn't sure why it's funny so he asks while Nadal is cracking up. Really like it

Why 'better'? Jamie pronounces 'book' in exactly the same way I do. I have an accent, it doesn't mean I speak an inferior form of English.

Giles Simon always looks like he just woke up and is slightly confused.

Haha. I loved his answer to the question, "What is your favorite food" and he goes McDonalds.

I know, well actually the term English says it comes from England right. didn't mean to insult you though, I'm sorry. We are just teached here to speak British in a certain way, and although I'm not really good at it, I think it's book and most people tend to say book rather than buke, no offence though

No problem mate. The days of received pronunciation on the BBC and a 'correct' form of English have long passed in the UK, but I'm being too hard on you - if you are learning the language then I'm not surprised you are taught to say a word one way only.

For the record, all Scots speak English - just with varying accents. Some Scots (1%) can also speak Gaelic or other dialects (Doric), but all scots speak English.

Again - no offence taken; you made an innocent remark and I was too tough on you - we Scots can be a bit 'chippy' at times (see Murray for an example!). My apologies.
