Reviews - What do customers think about The Xenophobe's Guide to the Greeks, 2nd (Xenophobe's Guides - Oval Books)?
The Greeks In less than 50 pages Sep 24, 2008
This book is very well written. The author hits every part of the culture and it's stereotypes with extreme accuracy. As a Greek whose lived in the U.S. for half of his life, the book had me reminiscing about my family and customs. A must read for any Greek, or someone married to a Greek.
greek traveler Sep 21, 2000
This small book better describes the average Greek and his society than any book I have read. The author is frank about the good and not so good qualities of the average greek but does it in a way that doesn't offend. I have shown it to greek friends and they agree with most of the descriptions of the greek society,people, and government. recommended for anyone going to greece which is a must see country.
