Sure you may have thought that you already knew everything there was to know about Germany and the Germans. Every school child knows that Germany is the land of circulatory disorders, Döner Kebab, naked sledding competitions and David Hasselhoff. But Germany is more than that. Much more. Did you know, for instance, that Germans invented the “Volkswagen,” brew over 5000 types of a popular drink called "Bier" and were actively involved in World War II? I didn't think so. That is why I have gone to the great trouble of putting an enormous amount of my precious time and effort into compiling a work of literary and socio-historical "Kunst" that will now fill in some of those appalling gaps of knowledge you have.

This stupendously superficial and yet "Supergeil" seminal study will thrill you with its humorous ranting, incisive raving and profound collection of unpremeditated observations, crude commentary and unsolicited opinion, all presented to you by an accomplished "Deutschland" expert with over 30 years of active experience in "das Feld," most of which having taken place in the baffling and bewildering city of “Berlin” itself (I was actually referring to me when citing that expert guy there).

This is “ein gutes Buch” and I can only hope that you will enjoy reading it half as much as I have enjoyed getting read of it (that was a pun), as in finally getting all of this pent-up aggression and frustration off my chest, I mean. The names have been changed to protect the innocent. What you see is what you get. It takes two to tango. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. You can't judge a book by its cover. Well, in this case maybe you can. But have a good laugh and “Viel Spaß dabei” anyway.
