-Author writes about each country with a voice of experience.
-He focuses on people, rather than places. I like this because you can read about places online, and personal interactions can be more interesting at times.
-As the title implies, you will truly get some (limited) information about every country you can imagine.
-The author is not as culturally open as you would want. My biggest issues are the complaints about "fat and stupid Americans." I think we all dislike a stereotype, but shouldn't someone who travels worldwide know that a stereotype is just that? Besides, if you're trying to sell to the US, shouldn't you re-phrase things? If I were selling to Norway, I would be careful not to complain about Norwegians.
-Gunnar is a single guy looking for a party. The familiar story of women wanting him and the parting gets pretty old. How can you know about a country when all you do is visit seedy bars?
-He really takes advantage of his blond-haired, blue-eyed, foreigner status to meet girls. Yes, I've been to a ton of emerging markets, though only about 50 countries. And SURPRISE - people in poor countries will do quite a bit to marry a relatively rich foreigner. Is it ethical to take advantage of this or use it to stroke your ego? Not in my book.
I agree with the other reviewers who said that the translation is poor.. so is the editing and the layout. However, this isn't a top quality book and I didn't expect it to be much more than a blog, so I'm ok with these issues. However, I don't recommend unless you want to hear the same "good-looking guy goes to a foreign bar" story re-hashed in 198 different ways.
Back home I did some research of other readers, and I found this Tweet about the book's author:
"I don't envy Cristiano Ronaldo, I don't envy Bill Gates, I don't envy Barrack Obama I only do envy Gunnar Garfors."
I have to say that I agree. Those experiences are unreal. The chapters from some countries are not as hilarious as others, but nor could you really expect. A must read for anyone who even considers travelling the world. Or for anyone who'd rather stay at home and let Garfors do the travelling for them.
