This is a sensible book. I want you to understand that. This is a book to improve your mind. In this book, I tell you all about Germany - at all events all I know about Germany - and the Ober-Ammorgau Passion Play. I also tell you about other things. I do not tell you all I know about all these other things because I do not want to swamp you with knowledge. I wish to teach you gradually. I should only be defeating my own object that I, by making you think too much at first, give you a perhaps lasting dislike to the exercise. I have purposely put the matter in a light and attractive form so that I may secure the alteration of the young and frivolous. I do not want them to notice as they go on, that they are being instructed; and I have therefore endeavoured to disguise from them, so far as practicable, that this is to either an exceptionally clever or an exceptionally useful work. I want to do them good without their knowing it. I want to do you all good - to improve your minds and to make you think, if I can.

What you will think after you have read the book, I do not want to know. Indeed, I would rather not know. It will be sufficient reward for me to feel that I have done my duty and to receive a percentage on the gross sales!

    " I love Jerome K. Jerome. If you can't afford to go on vacation for yourself this is the next best thing. It was also a lot of fun to read prior to my own vacation. He goes through a lot of the same chaos on a train that I went through on a bus, but he did it with wit? "
