This review is from: Sweden - Culture Smart! The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture (Paperback)
Bought as a present for someone who is on a cruise as we speak. The book has helped them through their visit and has been a great reader before visiting. Would recommend

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but not complete., 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this a four star as I do like it. The author covers many valid points - I know as I grew up in Sweden. However, a major failing is that she focus 99.99% exclusively on Stockholm and a little on Sweden's two other major cities, Gothenburg and Malmö. Sweden is a large country area wise, and culturally the rest of Sweden doesn't get a look in. It's like describing New York and thinking that you are then also describing Kentucky! There are significant difference. So for anyone coming to stay for a while in Sweden, do a bit more research before you leave your home turf. Food, for instance: the author appears to rely on very expensive outlets in the wealthier parts of Stockholm. If you have to rely on the mor e 'normal' outlets your experience may well be rather different.
