“Being Swiss and having lived abroad for almost two years now I feel entited to judge this book. Not only do I know my own cultuer but also i have gained enogh distance to my own culture to perceive better what constitutes Swiss culture is. I highly recommend this book. It is a great indtorduction to Swiss culture. The author managed to describe Swiss culture accurately, respectfully and a fine sense of humour.”  Review on Amazon.com
