9781436356404: Upsy-Downsy Land: An Insider's View of German Customs, Politics and Idiocy

Now you can find out if Germans are really always drunk, whether they take regular baths or how a social market economy works (or doesn't). This book takes a humorous but always critical look at life in Germany and exposes the downfalls of German society and politics. No holds are barred in this revealing book of German idiocy. Upsy-Downsy Land hits a nerve and pierces the German soul with a heartless but descriptive account of my life in Germany from 1976 to 2006. If you are expecting hoots and howls and testimonials on the back of this book, then you are mistaken. This is my first book and I have trusted nobody to read it before print. So just buy the book or put it back down. - Raul L. Butland

About the Author:

Raul L. Butland was born in 1959 at Scott Air Force Base outside of Belleville, Illinois. Born the son of an Air Force Serviceman, Raul enjoyed growing up all over the world. Life as a military brat wasn't always easy. However, the ability to see the world at a young age and understand the value of different cultures and customs was a horizon broadening experience he has valued throughout his adult life. Raul spent 30 years of his life living and struggling in Germany. He married his German high school sweetheart and had two children, Melissa and Michael. During his tenure in Germany, Raul worked 13.5 years for AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) starting as a laborer and finishing as a manager, Eismann Tiefkuhlkost GmbH & Co KG as a franchise owner for 6 years, as Director of Studies for inlingua School of Languages in Koblenz, Technical Translator/English Coach for 1&1 Internet AG in Montabaur, and finally as Director of Strategic English Learning (his own language school) in Sohren. Raul currently works for the state of Texas. Raul returned to the USA in 2006 to start all over after his divorce. He lives in Dale, Texas with his second wife Carmen, her son Florian and his son Michael.
