How I learned to stop worrying and love the Latte Macchiato

Mild-mannered suburban father Simon Capp took his young family off to the Italian countryside for a change of lifestyle and to test out the theory of the global internet worker. All he needs is electricity and a phone line. What could go wrong? This is the story of the Capp family's Italian odyssey, as they battle the combined forces of Telecom Italia, the nation's stingiest landlord, seven levels of police bureaucracy, a car with a deathwish curse and a town with only one pizzeria in it. It all seemed like such a good idea in the beginning! For more details about the book including a promotional video, go to Simon Capp's website


About the Author

Simon Capp

Simon Capp thought he would combine his dream of living in Italy with the modern world of communication. As a Japanese interpreter all he would need to work was electricity and an internet connection. The Capp Family headed off to a remote village in Italy, and found that theory and practice can be very different. Simon's latest book is about the family's grumpy landlord, battles with Telecom Italia and much more. Despite their trials, the Capps do eventually fall in love with Italy after moving to another village and are faced with the dilemma over whether they will return to Australia.
