Attractive Unattractive Americans
The world is watching…
7 YEARS + 7 CONTINENTS + 1 JOURNALIST = SURPRISING PERSPECTIVES ON THE ‘GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH!’
Almost every human being on the planet today knows something – and feels something – about America. It’s the “land of the free and the home of the brave.” It’s responsible for hamburgers and Coca-Cola and color TV. It’s the center of the universe, with the greatest athletes, tallest buildings, most famous movie stars, and biggest dreamers.
But what does a world that contains seven billion people really think about the most talked about – and controversial – nation on earth?
This is the question that inspired René Zografos to spend seven years interviewing people from seven continents to pen the definitive guide to the U.S.A.’s global reputation – Attractive Unattractive Americans: How The World Sees America [Renessanse Publishing, August 2015].
In Attractive Unattractive Americans, Zografos – an award-winning Norwegian-Greek author of eight books and veteran journalist – brings together the voices of thousands of people from around the world to highlight their opinions of Americans and the country they live in. From Mexico-born ‘Dog Whisperer’ Cesar Millan and a Bangkok-based tailor named Marco, to American girl-obsessed Italian teenagers and Swedish ex-pats living in the U.S.A., Attractive Unattractive Americans is chock-full of hundreds of unexpected insights, opinions, compliments and criticisms about the so-called “greatest country on earth.” It’s a fascinating, not-to-be-missed exploration of culture, politics, philosophy, and the American Dream the likes of which has never before been seen in one place.
“During my travels, I’ve always heard strong opinions about Americans and their country,” Zografos explains of his inspiration to pen Attractive Unattractive Americans. “And having been to the States quite often, I couldn’t understand some of the ideas I encountered about it. I had to find out, and now, I’ve got some real answers – good, bad, and ugly!”

"I expected a few surprises along the way. Well, the people Zografos interviewed delivered. I was particularly shocked by some of the sweeping generalizations. Overall, I had fun reading Attractive Unattractive Americans" The wandering Justin
"This book is fantastic. I have always been intrigued with other countries and cultures and this book really lays it all out there. Good and bad opinions, impressions, statistics, ideas. Wow, I thought I had a pretty good sense of how America was perceived but after reading this I see I had no idea. I learned so much and it was really eye opening. It has further fueled my passion to travel within my own country as well as abroad! I would highly recommend this book!
"Lipstick and Leopard print
"I would highly recommend René Zografos novel to anyone, particularly Americans that believe America is home of the great and land of the free, but recognizes that America too can improve and that there ACTUALLY is a blue print in order to do so"
