Nice Place, Shame about the Human race
Present day society has over the last sixty years, undergone immense transformation processes in which because of this rapid development, an attempt has been made to create a greater awareness in our everyday modern attitudes and behaviour. Spending child and adolescent years in the UK and his working life in Germany, the author has concentrated most of his observations upon these two cultures - examining modern behaviour both towards our planet and one another, and of stressing the importance of discovering oneself for more personal happiness. A light read, and occasionally ironic, this book observes social habits, routines and characteristics which make-up our western-cultures of today.

I read this book within a week (something that I do not usually achieve!). Although the themes of the book are not new - the enjoyment of observing oneself in so many situations of life is both interesting and thought-provoking. The author has obviously attempted to make aware the seriousness of our modern behaviour with simplicity in layout - possibly with the aim of attracting as many people as possible to at least, check "their ways". I especially enjoyed the examples taken from his German experiences. The downside of this book - it hasn´t got enough pages! (approximately 300).
An amusing read without becoming tedious or too laborious.

This book is an eyeopener!

It is like a friendly mirror showing numerous entertaining habits cultivated in our society...with a good sense of humour...just to remind us, to sometimes think before reacting in habitual ways.

The book is easy to read (I am not a native speaker) due to a bloomy lingo which keeps the reader in the flow.
What I like the most is, you can stop after reading one chapter without loosing track.

The chapters illuminate almost every area of life with a clear sense for the underlying truth.

I don't know how many times I was 'forced' to smile while reading.

"Nice PLace, Shame About The Human Race" made me think a lot more about the way I think and react in rather habitual ways.
I became more aware of the things going on around me and how I interact with them.

I enjoyed reading it very much!
