Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692338756, Paperback)

Italians have spent a thousand years perfecting a certain way of living. In a country with a reputation of not obeying rules, there are some hard and fast Italian Life Rules, which are known and followed. You should never greet some people in Italy with a cheery “Ciao!” Why? Italian women can stride across cobblestones wearing stilettos with five-inch heels. How? Studies show that Italians tip less than other Europeans. Why? Tourists can’t go to just any Italian beach and spread a picnic lunch out on the sand during some months. When? It seems like every shopkeeper in Italy demands exact change. Why? When in Italy, enjoy being Italian for a few days, weeks or months, by learning the Italian Life Rules for a greater appreciation of what it means to be Italian.
