Germany Survival Bible

I stumbled upon the Germany Survival Bible while browsing Spiegel Online . A few articles of special interest: Brutally Honest talks about Germans and their straightforward style of communication (which can be taken as rudeness, until you've learned otherwise). And I had to chuckle at "Gross" is a German Word, Too -- one family's story of confusion over a common word.

I will have to follow the links after work. I live in a very German community and the traits run deep, including the "straight forward style of communication"!

The Dutch are brutally honest as well, which used to shock me sometimes. I have to say, though, that now that I'm used to it I really like it because you always know where you stand with them...
