One of the best travel books I've ever read. It doesn't tell you so much about the touristy cities so much as prepares you for the culture in a country. It informs you on holidays, attitudes towards outsiders, the country customs and values, and spoken and unspoken communication. After reading this book, I feel prepared to visit Sweden and not offend them.

As the subtitle suggests, this is "a quick guide to customs & etiquette." It seems to be designed primarily for business travelers, but even though I don't fit into that category, I found it very interesting. It has a lot more information about social systems, living in Sweden, customs, and so forth than travel books.

Read in preparation for my upcoming trip to Stockholm. I found Swedish culture to be really interesting and I was even more convinced that I'd love Sweden.

Now to find a Swedish man so I can immigrate to the country!
