I've just finished reading your fantastic book.  I enjoyed every minute of it.  In fact I'm trying to think who else I can buy it for this Christmas.

It helped me to understand some of those crazy Swiss quirks a little more and realise that some of the things I've had to deal with are not personal they are just the Swiss way!!

Dear Flo,

I started reading your book on Saturday and finished it on Sunday. I enjoyed it from page 1 to page 171. It is really funny and at the same time I learnt a lot.

THANK YOU for this wonderful book.I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

I thought it was a really fun read. After living in Geneva for several years I can relate to some of the experiences in the book.  It was definitely fun to hear that I was not the only one who has had some of the "Swiss" experiences.  
Definitely worth checking out.

Ciao Flo-
I just wanted to let you know that I sat down with your book this evening and read it all the way through!  There is so much in it that is very easy to relate to...I laughed out loud more than a few times.  Many of your experiences mirror ours.  I made my husband read the "Survival Guide" at the end and he commented that you "nailed it."  There are so many strange 'quirks' about the Swiss that you can only appreciate if you are a foreigner.

Thank you for sharing your writing with the expat population here in Geneva--it was a pleasure to read...an enjoyable evening escape!
Best wishes,
Michelle Riley (USA)



First of all, I never finish a book. I finished yours in less than 48 hours (Saturday/Sunday).

The timing was perfect because I just had my first "Swiss" experience on Friday.


Reading your book helped me not take it personally.

Thank you,
