After reading The Xenophobe's guide to the Germans, where I've worked and lived the past twenty odd years, decided to read the book about my nation. Again I found it amusing and contains many truths. Only after working and living in a foreign country can we really appreciate who we are and see our own culture objectively. It's like putting mirror in front of your face, we're all prisoners of our own culture.
I think we have to take all the books in this series with a pinch of salt and not too seriously, then they are very amusing. The books obviously deal with stereotypes, so there will always be truths for some and not others. Had me giggling about my own British foibels though and again made for very entertaining reading!
