A fter two best-selling books exploring the quirks of German culture, I find I’ve become somewhat of a pundit for German life. Unsure about my position, and with severe doubts about my expertise, I decided to take on a series of integration challenges. Unfortunately, the vast majority go horribly wrong. Readers will learn:

  • What happens when someone of no musical talent creates a Schlager song.
  • Why you shouldn’t accept a ride from aMitfahrgelegenheitvan containing a mattress and a cat with one eye.
  • What watching seventy hours of German TV in a week does to your health (and faith in humanity).
  • How to really annoy a Beamte.
  • Why it’s not a good idea to Nordic Walk through Ballermann 6, Mallorca.
  • Why you shouldn’t attend a Schützenfest if you can neither drink nor march.
