Lagom: The Very Unofficial Guide to the Swedes (2003)
Edition Details:

Language: English

Blurbs:
  • "This book was written with the intent of introducing Sweden and the Swedes to English speaking people. I also wanted to keep the level of English fairly simple so that it would be accessible to non-native English speakers. Originally the idea was spawned by the questions from all the interesting guests I have had the pleasure of getting to know. All the time that I have spent in Britain or the USA has made me reflect upon my native country. This has led me on a road of observation. Naturally my prejudices, preconceived ideas, personal experience, friends and other Swedes, as seen on TV, portrayed in books and listened to on the bus, I have come to the conclusions on which this book is based. Of course other Swedes may totally disagree with my opinions. My aim has been to keep it at a personal and informal level. " -Author
