The Author


The webmaster and author of this website, Hyde Flippo, was born in Roswell, New Mexico (USA). After growing up in California and North Carolina, Hyde has lived in Reno, Nevada since 1960.

The German Way was his first published book. His latest publication is Perfect Phrases in German. Before that, he authored When in Germany, Do As the Germans Do. He also co-wrote Deutsche Sagen und Legenden (German Legends) with Herb Kernecker. All four books are available from or your local bookstore.

For ten years (1998-2008) Hyde was the Guide for German Language at, a position he gave up in March 2008 in order to devote more time to his writing and websites. Most of his content is still online.

The author and his wife continue to travel in Europe and the German-speaking countries from time to time, visiting friends and relatives, doing more book research, taking pictures, and enjoying the culture. In 2007/2008 and in 2011 Hyde lived in Berlin temporarily trying to learn even more about the German language and culture.

His new publishing house, H. Flippo & Sons Publishing Co., LLC, under its Humboldt American Press imprint, published a new German grammar review book featuring Hagar® and Peanuts® cartoons in German in October 2012. Deutsch macht Spaß is authored by Brigitte Dubiel, a long-time teacher of German who was born in Frankfurt am Main. Two more Humboldt American Press books are now in preparation.
