"Coping with Germany" is a mine of information for the tourist, the business traveler and the short term visitor, on travel, accommodation, food, drink, shopping, money, social and business etiquette and possible problems of communication. Beware the Japanese car manufacturers test-driving their products at Nurburgring speeds on the motorways, watch your hotel phone bill carefully and don't eat all your "Knodel" all at once. The book sets the practical advice against a background of German history, economic development and certain key social matters -- all filtered through the author's long experience of living in the country as he probes behind the beer-and-sausage facade to reveal the secrets of German orderliness and drive for achievement. In short, it is not just written as a guide book, but a companion to help the visitor cope with Germany.
