After more than 20 years away, Alda Sigmundsdottir returned to her native Iceland as a foreigner. With a native person's insight yet an outsider's perspective, Alda quickly set about dissecting the national psyche of the Icelanders. Among the fascinating subjects broached in The Little Book of the Icelanders: The appalling driving habits of the IcelandersNaming conventions and customsThe Icelanders' profound fear of commitmentThe irreverence of the IcelandersWhy Icelandic women are really menHow the Icelanders manage to make social interactions really complicatedThe importance of the family in Icelandic societyWhere to go to meet the real Icelanders (and possibly score some free financial advice)Rituals associated with weddings, confirmations, graduations, and deaths… and many, many more. One chapter leads to the next, creating a continuous chain of storytelling. It feels as if you're sitting in the author's kitchen, enjoying a cup of coffee and conversing with her about the quirks of her countrymen, every now and then bursting out laughing. [.] I'm going to heartily recommend The Little Book of the Icelanders, both to fans of Sigmundsdóttir's blog and those unfamiliar with her work- Iceland Review OnlineThere aren't many books I'd recommend reading over morning coffee but The Little Book of the Iceanders is one of them. [.] I laughed at the essays in this book, not because I was laughing at Icelanders but because I recognize much of the behaviour in myself and members of my family. It felt good. It's not just the sanest, most impressive characteristics that we pass on and share but also some of the zaniest. As I read this book, I frequently thought, yup, I'm definitely part Icelandic- Lögberg-Heimskringla, Canada
