I thought this was good and helpful and quick to read through, but might be a little outdated. I think If we were staying longer and actually tried to be social or I got a job there, this would be worth re-reading. It did seem to keep re-hitting the same couple points. But I felt this was a good book and I would expect other items in the series to be worth-while as well.

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!
