"Andrew Roberts has compiled a highly informative and enjoyable dictionary of Czech popular culture. The topics covered include society, politics, history, literature, music, movies, sports and much more. Regardless of length, the entries are clear and well-written. Historical background is provided whenever needed. The book is rounded off with a useful alphabetical and thematic index to all dictionary entries. People interested in Czech history, culture and politics will find this work a valuable source for informative descriptions and definitions. All the more so because it is written in a lucid, wry style which is a pleasure to read. The author has a good eye for the little oddities of everyday life and a remarkable understanding of the Czech mentality and worldview (I especially liked the way he highlights Czech quirks with respect and humor). A big plus is the author's website, where he regularly updates and extends his book." "I ended up ordering copies of the book for several of my friends who shared my experiences, and they have loved it too!"
