I can help with Swiss German [Resources for learning - book, links etc]

Most books concerning Swiss German can only be found in Switzerland. That is where I found my book. There are a great number of Germans now living in Switzerland and there is some desire to learn the multitude of Swiss dialects although it is not necessary. Swiss people can understand and speak German. The book I have teaches everything using the Berener dialect. This kinda pisses me off because I'm much more familiar with a central Swiss dialect from Luzern. People from Bern and many surrounding areas sound sloooow. Ok, the name of the book I have is, "Hoi Zame: Schweizerdeutsch leicht gemacht." It was written by Sergio J. Leivano und Nicole Egger. I recommend it, but the best way is living with and learning the dialect.
