Continuación en papel del proyecto web de un tipo búlgaro que vive en Valencia y al que se ocurrió poner sobre el mapa una de esas citas atribuidas falsamente a Churchill o Schopenhauer, que venía a decir algo como "Todos los países dicen cosas horribles de los demás países, y lo cierto es que todos tienen razón".

Así, los mapas de Tsvetkov nos descubren "El mundo según los EE.UU.", "Europa según los italianos" y dos docenas de atlas de los prejuicios y los estereotipos más. Acompañan a los

Conoscere gli stereotipi degli altri per capire quanto siano stupidi i nostri.
Ecco perché si dovrebbe leggere questo libro (facendosi delle belle risate).

First of, apologies for this harsh review (in comparison to most others).
I liked the book, but felt that it was overall quite repetitive. It's like the author, after making a buzz with his first map, tried really hard to come up with new ideas in order to publish a book – of which I don't see the added value.
Nevertheless I liked the concept and the texts were interesting, hence my "it was ok" rating.

I've wanted it for such a long time and in the end that was it's downfall - a lot of it had lost it's relevance now and the jokes were meh. I enjoyed the accompanying texts a lot more than the maps which was definitely unexpected but a welcome surprise and lifted the rating I gave it.

Almost worth reading. It is somewhat entertaining. You can find it online for free by Googling.

“История — странное создание. Она способна ослепить нас нашим же отражением, когда мы бросаем взгляд в ее глубокие таинственные воды. Многие из нас утонули в них, прямо как мифологический Нарцисс, чья влюбленность в собственную красоту оказалась сильнее, чем инстинкт самосохранения.” 0 likes
