Product Description

Review

Essential addition to any Spain fan's library. To get to grips with Spain and the Spanish, you have to get to grips with the culture argues a fabulous new book. --Living Spain Magazine<br /><br />Whether you own a second property in Spain or visit as a tourist, you can get much more out of your experience by exploring what makes the Spanish tick. --Caché+ Magazine<br /><br />The second in a series of books (the first was on France) that promises to unravel the DNA of a nation. It's like a breezier, brighter version of one of those Contexts sections in the back of a Rough Guide, a tapas menu with bite-sized chunks on everything from history to film. --Michael Kerr The Daily Telegraph<br /><br />Whether you own a second property in Spain or visit as a tourist, you can get much more out of your experience by exploring what makes the Spanish tick. --Caché+ Magazine<br /><br />The second in a series of books (the first was on France) that promises to unravel the DNA of a nation.

Does not merely list the best places to visit but instead explains what has made Spain what it is today. --Dialogin member Katja Kordels, Spain & Germany

There is quite a lot of useful and interesting content in this book. Unfortunately, I was extremely irritated by the 'dumbed-down' presentation, with facetious cartoons, and text in the style (and layout) of tabloid newspaper columns rather than being written as coherent prose. Perhaps I am showing my age (I am over 50) but this book seems to have been aimed at teenagers rather than at an adult readership.

Very interesting overview of all aspects of Spanish life from literature to food. Enough detail to make it interesting reading and not so much that you get bored. A book which would be helpful for anyone going to live in Spain and even if you're only going on holiday, it gives you enough background to understand a bit of the history and what goes on there in the arts.

Half way through it and most of what I have read is very good. The big downside is the choice of orange as a colour for some of the print which, if you are not reading it in good daylight or in very good artificial light, is almost impossible to read as is some of the very small type in the sidebars. This is a great pity since it spoils the otherwise excellent content which on its own would easily warrant five stars.
