    out of 5 stars The Xenophobe's Guide to the Swiss. Reviewed in the United States on May 5, Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book was recommended to me by a "Swiss fan" and I really thank him for the excellent read. I chuckled and truly enjoyed the book. I'll have to obtain some "hard" copies to give to my friends.4/5. It isn’t a language book but does explain various concepts e.g. dusha, toska, sudjba, terpenie, blat, khalyava, volya, etc. I don’t know if the book is reinforcing old stereotypes, but it feels current, is well set out and is wittily written by a Professor who was born before the war in .

    The German-speakers do little else. The French-speaking Swiss are great visionaries and philosophers with noble thoughts and global dreams. They worry that their Swiss-German compatriots do not share these dreams. The Italian-speaking Swiss are less interested in the solid values of work and have a terrible tendency not to worry nearly enough.   There may be a grain of truth in the stereotyped phrases of Xenophobe's guide, but I just read this small book with a smile on my face. Quite funny indeed. Thanks to our friends Mia, Martin and dear Sophie we got this one as a present to get ready ourself for the American life, I already feel ready:)/5.
