Gerald Drißner writes books on Arabic language and grammar. Besides, he is atravel writer.
Gerald has studied Arabic solely in Arab countries. That is why he explains Arabic and Islamfrom the Arab perspective, thereby filling the gaps between the Western and Arab approaches. He publishes his Arabic books as a successful selfpublisher under the label pochemuchka-books.
His book Arabic for Nerds was recommended by the King’s College London.
In his books, Gerald has developed a new style of travel writing. He calls it travel realism. The author avoids being the main character and does not set out on a self-discovery journey.
He is a close observer. Gerald writes aboutthings that cannot be found on the internet and explains why things work differentlyas we used to know.
