    I read the Guide to the Scots first and thank goodness I did If I had read the a Guide to the Swiss first I wouldn't have been reading any of the other Xenophobe Guides This was a shallow compendium of stereotypes which barely scratched the surface of who the Swiss are Yes they have money Yes they make a lot of chocolate Did the author even have to go to Switzerland to write this? The Scots one was so good I will keep reading the others but if you're looking for a guide to Swiss people I would suggest Swiss Watching Inside Europe's Landlocked Island instead

    Like with all The Xenophobe's Guides is well structured and covers as much as in 96 pages is possible Is enough to give you an educated some might say biased introduction to other cultures I dont know any Swiss people so I take for granted the author and the review frm others

    Told with a sense of humor it isn't entirely true but only because not explaining some things in detail leaves room for humor I enjoyed it and it was entertaining Great way to learn about Swiss culture without dying of boredom


  5. says:

    An informative yet hilarious novel which aims to delve inside even the smallest bizarre traits that before this novel have managed to baffle foreigners for millennia It was a delight to read providing an amusing 'idiot's guide' to traits common to an entire nation

    uick enjoyable read My husband and I read it out loud and were uite entertained Some parts of it were spot on other parts I felt were way off The author is British and lives in the Oberland so perhaps his experience has been different than mine an American who moved to Zurich

    Passed on to me by a friend born in Switzerland When returning it I will be sure to note the author's description of Swiss of German descent as somewhat sedated Germans
