I agree, this is a great book, it's entertaining and most of the information in it is accurate and up-to-date. You'll learn about the Czech dining etiquette, standards of appearance, Czech body language, doing business in the Czech Republic, and lots of other things. I'm Czech myself and have enjoyed reading various sections of the book, sometimes laughing out loud and thinking, wow, this is right on!
I included links to buy the book on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. My Czech Republic is an affiliate of Amazon, so any purchases made through the links below will help support myczechrepublic.com and these boards!
