How to be Swiss: an instruction manual
December 8, 2016, 3 Comments
The art of being Swiss isn’t an easy thing to master, even if you have a head start by being born that way, but How to be Swiss will help you make it (or fake it). This instruction manual is the result of years of hard work by the authors themselves, one British and one Swiss.
The first step to Helvetic heaven is often the toughest: how to greet the Swiss when you meet them. Once you’ve passed that test, the next takes you back in time through the history every Swiss knows (or should do).
Further steps will have you living and laughing like the Swiss, seeing the world through their eyes, negotiating a political maze, and finding Swiss bliss in the simplest of things. Not forgetting the Swiss Commandments, which will be revealed in all their glory.
By the end you will have learnt how to enter a lift properly and discovered why 1908 was such a special year; you will know how to spend your Sundays and have navigated the Swiss archipelago. In fact, you will have realised how Swiss you are already, or how Swiss you want to be.
How to be Swiss is on sale in bookshops across Switzerland, or online direct from the publisher. It’s essential reading for anyone living, and laughing, in Switzerland.
