"A frank and funny look at what makes the Danes Danish"

"The Danes
Illuminating insights into their character and quirks."

(Xenophobia - a phobia about foreigners beeing foreign)

I've read a few pages and I find it pretty interesting and funny.

A mostly funny and interesting book, although a few topics bored me a bit. I got some good laughs while reading!

An example from the book:
"Deep down Danes believe that being Danish is a privilege and makes them special. They say that if Scandinavia is a bowl of rice pudding, Denmark is the 'smørhul' - the golden hollow in the middle, full of melted butter. Ask them why , however, and they are unlikely to be able to string together enough positive adjevtives to convince you. Sentences containing more than two such words promt most Danes' innate 'anti-brag' filter on kick in. Positive words used by youngsters to mean 'cool' include fedt (fat) and sej (tough), both of which can be applied to bacon."

The book is with me, along with its traveling companions. I'm not a super fan of Denmark, but I'm still looking forward to reading this book. :-)
