Reading List: Shut Up I’m Talking

Today’s Tip: Shut Up I’m Talking: and other diplomacy lessons I learned in the Israeli Government

shut up I'm talking cover

If you’ve ever been to Israel and were baffled by some of the cultural norms: rarely hearing anyone say hello or thank you, a seemingly total lack of customer service – then you’ll like this book.

Gregory Levey tells his bizarre and at times unbelievable story of accidentally becoming a speech writer for the Israeli Prime Minister in a way that makes it impossible to stop reading.  From way too personal security checks, to pure bureaucratic chaos, his story is like nothing you’ve read before.

From the first page, he hooks you with his humor and his adventure gives some fascinating insights into what is actually going on at the highest levels of the Israeli government.

If you are planning a trip to Israel, pack this book, at the very least you will discover why everyone in Israel is so paranoid.
