I'm going to have a look for the new edition in the next few days, give me a break from Christmas stuff!! _________________ The word gormless. I looked up 'gorm' in the dictionary and it wasn't there........
Wonderful book! I bought it before I moved to Brno several years ago and I loved it. Right before moving back to the states, I "discovered" it again and had a good laugh. I still had all sorts of misunderstandings while there, but at least I was a little prepared.

When I was in Prague last October (2005) I purchased a book called “The Czechs in a Nutshell – A User’s Manual for Foreigners” by Terje B. Englund. He is a Norwegian journalist who has been based in Prague since in 1993 and writes on Czech and Slovak affairs. I found it very interesting and two of my Czech friends (one from Opava, one from Studénka) have commented that it gives a very good representation of Czechs and their culture. It also contains references to key historical events in the Czech lands history. Worth a read.
