Contains core, practical information on Germany and its locals. It contains much but only a sliver of what there is actually to learn. But, this book is great for a start. If you are serious about living or traveling to Germany, I would suggest buying the book "Living and Working in Germany" with precise information about the lifestyle and culture in Germany (which is also available on Amazon.) But nevertheless, this is a great beginning overview of the German culture.

This is a great book, it has a little of everything on how things are over there. I would definitely recommend you get this book before planning a trip so you can brush up on their culture. It's easy to read and very helpful on a variety of subjects. It was just what I was looking for.

The author has an admirable insight into what constitutes German culture and how it compares and contrasts to the U.S. lifestyle. Having lived as an American in Germany for four years and spent much of the last sixty-five years as an aficionado of all things written about Germany, I can say this piece is thorough and insightful. Read and enjoy!

Thank you :)

Good price, fast shipping, as described. Bought for college.

Although the book is very small, it covers the main aspects that can be generalized over all Germans, regardless of their cultural origin within Germany itself. That alone makes it worthwhile reading. It's also a good guideline on "do's and don'ts" for guest visiting Germany and german private friends in particular.
Bandiri
It's and easy yet informative read. Very helpful in relations with anyone who is from Germany and right on point. Although it is a little repetitive.
THANKS FOR THE CULTURAL INSIGHTS!!!
