Why the Germans Do It Better


Why the Germans Do It Better: Notes From A Grown-up Country by John Kampfner

Why The Germans Do It Better

In a world of Trump, Brexit, climate-chaos and a general sense that everything has just gone a wee bit mad, Germany proves time and again that it is the most grown-up country in the world. Mixing personal journey and anecdote with compelling empirical evidence, this is a critical and entertaining exploration of the country many in the West still love to hate. Why the Germans Do It Better is a rich and witty portrait of an eternally fascinating country.
