Athens - The Truth: Searching for Manos, Just Before the Bubble Burst, by David Cade.

Great new book on Athens, full of detail, telling it like it is - or rather like it was when the author was there at the start of the crisis.  Many fascinating details about the city, recent history, culture, people, behaviour, and so forth.  Quite controversial in parts.  Very "warts and all".  But reviewers say the author clearly loves Greece and everything Greek - or nearly everything Greek! 

Blurb on back of book is true indication of content:

"Charmed for decades by the music of Oscar-winning Greek composer Mános Hadjidákis, David Cade explores Athens as news breaks at the end of 2009 that Greece is in serious financial difficulty. After years in the neighbouring Middle East, the author talks to Athenians, examines many of the city’s most extraordinary attractions, and carefully surveys key aspects of Greece’s modern history. The result is both a thrilling account of what makes Athens tick and a vivid explanation of why Greece is as it is today. Widely researched and full of fascinating detail, ‘Athens - The Truth’ offers both a gripping read for the armchair traveller at home and a rich alternative to the traveller’s traditional guidebook."

Looks very interesting. Beware though that for some reason the despatch is 1-2 months so not a crimble pressie.  Not sure about Kindle edition though.
Beside the sea all worries wash away!!

BookDepository is good though.  Postage free to anywhere in the world, within 72 hours, and much cheaper than at Amazon!  £3 cheaper than Amazon!

Popular for over a century by the music composer named Mános Hadjidákis, David Cade finds Athens as news broke in late 2009 that Greece was in financial trouble. I had dissertation writing services for them. After years in the Middle Neighboring the East, the author speaks to the Athenians, examines many of the city's most attractions, and carefully explains the key points of Greek history.
