How to explain the world to our children – a light-hearted approach

There is without doubt nothing in the world more wonderful than children. But then they get bigger and start exploring the world. Regrettably. For the world is becoming increasingly more complex and incomprehensible even for adults, and it is often difficult to know what to tell the kids. Martenstein has the answer. He himself has for years been at the receiving end of all manner of questions. In this book he tells readers how he explains the mysteries of life and the world to his child – what politics is about; how to face the dangers of alcohol; ingenious ways of dealing with the opposite sex; and so and so on…

His explanations and observations are, not unexpectedly, a little out of the ordinary and, of course, inane.
