Indeed, he tells us how he copes with his Vietnamess roommate's throat cleaning behaviour and strange voices in the morning from his Italian roommate (check it out!!!). He also describes how to socialize with anyone from different roots including Italian' manner while having dinner. It is all interesting.
However, i notice weaknesses of this book. He showers us with a bunch of history lesson. Background of historic paintings, building, etc. I think it takes a third of this book. So once i think it is a history book. Please.... I am not learning history. I expected other story than a history.
He also completes this book with some pics. Unfortunately, most of them are black and white so we can't enjoy the pics entirely.
