Ladies & Gentlemen,
this book is for those who are interested in going a little deeper into those peculiar national traits that often burst to the surface in a character. You will find many examples of national habits and tendencies which you may vaguely have noticed before but could not really put your finger on. Not only are these traits described (which in itself is hilarious to read), but they are also, where possible, convincingly explained. Hill leaves you the impression that he has seen a great deal, but what does he make of it all? I think the idea is to extract as much amusement as possible from the variety of habits throughout Europe and to avoid taking these differences too seriously. If there's one chap needed in a sensible future European Parliament, then it is him. This book is simply fantastic.

This is one of the greatest books I have read about the cultural differences between European countries. The author does not limit himself to the usual big countries, but reviews even tiny ones like Luxembourg. It's easy to read, funny, full of practical examples about how people from each culture react in a given situation. Just great.

I've read lots of books treating the subject matter of Europeans in different ways and this is by far the most entertaining of all of them.
It covers the subjects of the politics, linguistics, attitudes, history and cultures of the distinct European nations written about in this book with just the right mix of humour and well-researched information.
I have no idea how one person can get to become so knowledgeable about every single one of these countries and how it's people operate but Richard Hill certainly manages to get it right.
This isn't a guide book or a travel book. In fact I'm not sure how I'd categorise it but I think that it would be for anyone who finds the subject matter interesting from an academic point of view but wants a good read at the same time.
