Respectful and trueReviewed in the United States on July 6, 2017
This book truly captures the Swiss essence in a respectful and appreciative way. My late stepfather was Swiss (my mom and I are Latin American, he moved to our contry when they got married) and these pages brought to life so many memories! He trying to fit in a society that doesn't plan long term and time is 'relative', our emotional way to socialize, etc. I remember my mom once asking him by the tenth time in a very flirty way (as customary here) 'Honey, do you love me?, and him looking at her with an expression of confusion all over his face, answering 'Darling, I already told you I love you this morning. I haven't changed my mind.' In the end, we learned a lot from him as well as he from us. Books like these, that can actually help you understand and appreciate a different culture faster, are really a treasure. Thanks to the author for this great work. Totally recommended.

Highly recommendReviewed in the United States on June 21, 2019
I have been traveling to Switzerland for quite sometime now. I came across this book ordered it and read it within two days. Very exciting read. It also helps that I majored in history undergrad so this was an easy read for me. I highly recommend it.

I’ve been to Switzerland two years in a row now, and reading this book has been interesting and informative. The information is accurate and helpful towards understanding Swiss culture.
Fascinating in-depth guideReviewed in the United States on March 21, 2017
Superbly written, great insights into the Swiss culture. Details not found in any other travel guide such as why the Swiss never drive with the car windows down. Fascinating reading.
