About Ze Germans  ze germans book cover

As an expat living in Germany, Fadi Gaziri found it difficult to adapt to the German way of life at first. He constantly bemoaned the sense of humour, the overly-direct approach, the lack of tact, the non-existence of customer service, the staggering bureaucracy, and many other aspects of everyday life one faces in the Bundesrepublik. 

However, while many expats would have simply packed their stuff and got on a plane, Fadi was determined to “stick it out”. Tired of banging his head against a wall, he quietly decided to write a book. 

“It was an epiphany. If I was frustrated with something, instead of venting it to other people, I wrote it down on a piece of paper. It was like meditating.” 

It turned out he was very frustrated indeed.

If you’ve read any of Fadi’s articles for IamExpat, you’ll know what to expect: written with a light, anecdotal voice, mixed in with a dollop of self-mockery, this book gives a vivid account of life in Germany. 

Part satirical guide, part useful handbook, Ze Germans attempts to dive deeper into the German mindset, to help newly-arrived internationals understand the mentality of this country, while also entertaining them along the way!
