Are the Swiss really hard to crack like coconuts?

Have been reading this book about Switzerland and it said that getting to know the Swiss is just as hard as breaking through a coconut's outer shell. It further said "In contrast to cautious coconuts, societies in the English-speaking world are all peaches... where every stranger is a potential friend." Based on my experiences so far over here, I find this somewhat true. Anyone else have this same impression?
This user would like to thank MrsJPS for this useful post:

coconut, friends, swiss
