Prior review pretty much said it. The book is mostly trying to explain the advantages of Germany's social democracy over our cold-blooded capitalism. Fine topic. But he also tries to work in his experiences while traveling like Bill Bryson. He fails miserably. For stretches of several pages he can write a good argument. But those periods of clarity are seperated by pages and pages of stream of consciousness, unfiltered, narrative. He is not very funny, though he thinks he is. The 270 pages could have been edited down to 180!
I give this 2 stars because of the good stretches. If you read this, then save time and frustration by scanning through it for the good stuff!
