Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
A huge disappointment
I was hoping for a book that would cast a new light on `The Aussie', perhaps giving a humurous slant on the characteristics of the modern Australian. Instead, we simply get a regurgitation of the well worn cartoon cliched image of `The Ocker Aussie', which has been written about elsewhere a million times before (ie Lives life in the Pub, has loads of mates, no respect for authority etc etc). As anyone who lives in Australia knows, these attributes belong more to myth than reality.
Unfortunately, this book simply restates the stereotypical image that most foreigners already have of Australians, rather than focusing on the less well known quirks and foibles that most other Xenophobe guides manage to capture.
