275 Absurd, Silly, And Random, Yet Thought-Provoking Observations About The Spanish Language And Culture by Timothy Maxwell
A personal message from the author:
An American-turned Citizen of the World-turned Renaissance Man, Timothy can do it all. Including writing a refreshingly fun and intellectually stimulating book about the Spanish language, culture, and food.
Spanish is the fourth most spoken language in the world, with the second most native speakers in the world! And there are still millions more who want to learn the language so they can visit Spanish-speaking countries and enjoy experiences someone who doesn't speak the language would never have.
If you're one of those people, or you just enjoy interesting trivia, then check out this book to give you some insight that you'll never learn from a textbook. You won't want to put this book down!
— Timothy Maxwell
This book is for anyone who enjoys fresh and unconventional observations. If you speak Spanish, or are learning Spanish, you’ll probably get even more out of this book. But really, you don’t have to speak Spanish or be a language enthusiast to be able to appreciate the, dare I say, genius of this book (I dared).
Based on the experiences of an American military brat, who lived in Europe for 10 years (three of them in Spain), and decided to write about his experiences, this book is funny, insightful, and a leisurely read. You’ll accidentally learn something as well. I promise.
You won’t find a story, but rather a compilation of (clever) observations about the Spanish language and culture. You will get to see the world as I see it – with wonder, amusement, and sporadic mixes of ingenuity and ridiculousness.Amazon
