Gustav Sundbärg is not primarily known as a man of humor, but as a skilled statistician and demographer. In this book, still, he presents a series of aphorisms on the "Swedish people's temperament", so the title translates. A few years before this book appeared, Gustav Sundbärg had led the Swedish government's investigation on emigration, and he touches on this topic also in this book.
