The complete title of this book is The Swedish God ALLA ( EVERYBODY ) and Her Prophets the JANTEMEN® - About the Nanny-State of the Nobel Prize . It is a satirical essay about the Swedish people, the Swedish lifestyle and the country s ambition to build, and enjoy (?), the most egalitarian society in the world. The author, Biro, is a professionally trained observer (medical scientist) with a lot of healthy humor. He provides a very entertaining description of the Nordic human phenotype, the characteristics of their body and behavior. The Swedish phenotype (blue eyes, blond hair, well-formed healthy body, tall elegant stature, elongated face, open honest sight) comprises typical bodily characteristics of the Arian ideal. Bur what about the stupidity of the blond and the naivety of the blue eyed? Biro is not shy to tell you the truth (honestly and politely) behind the arianity and stupidity of he Swedish blue-eyed blondes. We learn that the Swedes developed their own religion, the adoration of ALLA. Please do not confuse this with ALLAH, which is the Arabic name for God and has nothing to do with this new and breathtaking religion. ALLA is the Swedish word for EVERYBODY and refers to two religious concepts and personal faiths: First Alla, Tillsammans ( Everybody Altogether ) and second Alla Skall Ha ( Everybody Should Have ). This religion occupies all places in the Swedish heart and all nerves in the Swedish brain. ALLA has her own commandments, known as the Jante Laws . The Jante Laws express by ten different ways that you, as an individual, are a NOBODY, without any value. These and similar collectivistic laws provide the ideological foundation of socialistic and communistic societies. ALLA s Jante Laws are spread and enforced by ALLA s priests, the JANTEMEN®. Sweden and the Swesh provide an extreme and unique example of collectivistic living and thinking which has obviously been inspired by Marx. The European socialism is similar but much milder than the Swedish one. We Americans elected Obama to president of the USA and he pushes this country to left, toward the European and oh my goodness toward the Swedish model. It became a real concern, for many of us, how much is the risk (or chance?) that USA develops into a collectivistic society. Biro gives a clear, intelligent and realistic answer to this life-changing question.

About the Author:

The author of this book grew up in Europe on European cultural, social and religious traditions. He became a physician with unusual affection and talents for medical research. He decided at the age of 29 to move to Stockholm, take a position at the Royal Karolinska Hospital and start his research at the Royal Karolinska Institute. The Karolinska s reputation as an eminent research institute, its association with the Royal Family and the prestigious Nobel Prize, was an irresistible attraction for a young ambitious doctor. He became, in time, a Swedish Citizen, professor, married, and fathered two well-made (very Swedish) kids. However, Sweden changed a lot during that time. Biro moved to the USA in 2002 and became very successful in his new country. He wrote numerous influential scientific articles and reviews in his field, which most recently is computational and theoretical biology, and filed several patents. He completed Nirenberg s Genetic Code, work that has extremely high scientific and biotechnological potential. Biro was honored with US permanent residency in 2006 as a person with exceptional ability in US National Interest. His website is: www dot janbiro dot com

Review:

"You cannot strengthen one by weakening another; and you cannot add to the stature of a dwarf by cutting off the leg of a giant." But you can try! There are people in every single society who are sick of envy or desperately obsessed by the idea of equality. Sweden has especially many of them, so many that envy became part of the national character and millimeter equality became the ultimate political goal of that country. Not much is known about Sweden and the Swedes. We know about Luther, who split the Christianity. We recognize Nobel the person who developed the dynamite and founded the Nobel Prize. We have heard about the Welfare State and the idea of Marxistical distribution of the society s resources. Recent developments in the USA, election of a socialist president, Obama, make it especially relevant to pay serious attention to European socialistic countries and the so called Swedish example of the unlimited (wild) socialism. Biro provides an unprecedented insight into the Swedish soul and explains logically, but with a lot of humor, how the recent Swedish society and national phenotype developed. He compares the recent Sweden and the recent USA with each other and analyzes how much is it possible, that the Swede ideas spread into America and transform our capitalistic society. Biro s The Swedish God is a great reading, serious but entertaining. This book is especially highly recommended, as professional insider guide, to everybody who might consider working, studying, or marrying in Sweden. It will save them a lot of misunderstanding and disappointments. --Independent review 2

A highly unexpected and clearly very important historical event happened during the autumn of 2008 in the USA. The US economy entered free fall because of mismanagement and unprecedented greed by its leaders. The country entered a huge depression and drew the rest of the world with it into the same decline. The people started to cry out for change, which resulted in the election of Obama to the presidency, the very first African American president of the country. Now, President Obama turned out to be a highly intelligent and charming person with a nice family. He is popular in the USA with a high approval rating for what he is doing (in June 2009). He is well received in Europe (except the Vatican). He succeeded in stopping the country s economic free fall. However, he is a Democrat, who, very intelligently, has used the recent bad American situation to socialize the country with a lot of regulations and a huge government. People have started to worry that he will transmute the country - a traditionally capitalistic society (the World s largest) - into a bureaucratic socialism in the European style; God help us, perhaps the Swedish type. Sweden is the country that has gone furthest to the left in the entire World, having the largest governmental bureaucracy (control system), though it still remains formally a democracy, with free elections. Sweden is regarded as the world s most successful country in distributing goods according to the Marxist model, which says that members of society should contribute to wealth with their full capacity and receive their share from the goods in accordance with their needs, whatever that might mean. Biro is a professionally trained observer and analyst in a unique situation. He lived in Europe and Sweden for many years and has direct inside experience about life in those countries. At the same time, he is a devoted supporter of free, individual-based capitalism and a big fan of the American spirit and ideals of personal freedom, pursuit of happiness and the possibility of success. This book is a personal analysis of the Swedish human phenotype and lifestyle and has the very clear intention of achieving a realistic judgment: how great is the risk (or chance) that America will develop --Independent review 3

I enjoyed the essay. Many parts of it are very amusing, even when Biro is making a serious point. I have never seen the Swedish nation portrayed in such detail, or so wittily! The book is richly illustrated. The 50 cartoons are all professional works (line drawings, full color) and provide the book high esthetical value on its own. --Independent review 3
