Journalist Harry Wallop has spent a disproportionate amount of his working life chronicling the buying habits of the British people. He argues that our social standing in today's society is determined by the food we eat, our choice of holiday destination, the clothes we wear, even the size of the TV we sit in front of and what we call the room we sit in to watch it, and moreover, he shows us how retailers and big business are making the most of how we fit into these new social categories.
