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!
