Reading A to Z: X is for Xenophobes Guides

The Xenophobe's Guides are a series of books that are supposed to be a humorous way to learn about different nations and cultures. The short books are available both in print and as e-books and cover a multitude of countries across the world.

They are filled with all kinds of random trivia, which for a collector of useless facts, such as myself, is absolutely perfect. Some of the trivia is actually commentary on common beliefs found in each culture. A lot of the commentary is tongue-in-cheek and meant to entertain, not belittle or demean.

I have never read one of these, but they do look quite entertaining.
