I would certainly recommend the book.
A friend gave me this book because I was depressed not to have been recruited for a fantastic job in Geneva. This friend of mine leaved there for few years and strongly believed that the book would make me realise that it wasn't such a bad news after all.
For sure I had a very good reading time and the genuine laughter melted my disappointment.
It's a collection of funny episodes, written with intelligence, humour and self irony. But there is more to that and the author spots some aspects of the perfect land that any newcomer or failed one like me, should be aware of before embarking...
I had read some of the reviews of this book before I bought it and the few negative comments made me very curious. It is clear that the truth hurts, but honesty is always the best policy. Paradise (Apparently) is a refreshingly direct account of what living in Switzerland is like, delivered with a personal and humorous touch.
