Series: Culture Shock! A Survival Guide to Customs & Etiquette well the way they are. We encountered Czechs that came off as dry and emotionless people but the history of the people's struggle with communism made this "standoffish" attitude understandable. Another thing this book prepared us for was the food served in the Czech Republic. Czechs are described as carnivores who pay little mind to balanced nutritious meals, and prepare their food with great amounts of fat and butter. Normally I do not eat much meat or food that is deep fried, but I enjoyed the delicious Czech cuisine.

Series: Culture Shock! A Survival Guide to Customs & Etiquette. I would recommend this book to anybody who are visiting Czech republic and wants to understand czech people. 21 people found this helpful.

Culture Shock! Czech Republic book.

Czech domestic culture revolves around the family and this takes precedence over social life. Since the fall of communism and the influx of multi-national corporations, the work culture in the main cities of the Czech Republic has gradually shifted in line with western style culture. Universities and colleges close their dormitories at weekends so students can return to their families rather than stay on campus. Particularly in small towns and villages, Czechs prize practical skills above ‘soft skills’ with trades passed down the generations. Initial business meetings are formal affairs with standard business dress worn and business cards exchanged.

Be aware of social etiquette when dining in someone’s home or learn what to expect when attending a traditional wedding. Czech Republic is a must-have for anyone planning on adapting to life in the Czech Republic. Discover what you should expect to pay for your new home, what your tenant rights are and what documents are required for obtaining a work and spousal visa. Peppered throughout with useful phrases, terms and resources, CultureShock! Czech Republic is a must-have for anyone planning on adapting to life in the Czech Republic.

Xangeo
Excellent guide! Anyone contemplating travel should invest in one of these books first. There are many things we do out of habit and take for granted. Unfortunately, these efforts can often backfire in another country. For instance, if you're invited over for dinner in the Czech Republic, you don't ask (once you've arrived), "Is there anything I can do to help?" To them, this implies that the hostess is inept. Make your visit to another country more enjoyable. Buy one of these guides!

good reference book. My extended family lived there before being driven out by Hitler and had to leave everything behind even the laundry outside on the line

If you discount the preliminary and end pages, that leaves 27 pages of text, and those pages are more pictures than text. The pictures aren't all that outstanding, either! This book really should be marketed to children. Yes, the description says ages 6 and up, but the "up" does not apply to adults. A two-page spread is devoted to how to make animals out of lemons and cucumbers. Two more pages picture and describe how to make a Christmas chain!!! Wish I had never ordered the book, but it's not worth taking time to return it. A total waste of money.

I bought this book for my 18-year-old daughter who is going to the Czech Republic to teach English. She said it was simple and clear to read and entertaining. It is very informative regarding habits and beliefs of the local residents, very down to earth.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, I had a good laugh, I learned something
about myself (after twenty five years out of Prague, in Africa) and I
also realised how difficult it is for a non-European to appreciate
complexities of a small nation which lived for more than forty years
under communism. The book is amusing, open-mined, tolerant and
kind. It generally assesses well the character of the Czech
nation. Where it hits shallow ground are the issues related to life
under communism: incorect or insignificant problems like limited
shopping opprotunities, non-availaibility of goods, banning of western
music overshadow the real issues of the evil of communism: its grip on
people's life, its control of persons' destiny. And what really jabbed
me was a very ethnic view of the author on what is a polished
culture. Athough numerous habits and customs encoutered in the Czech
culture are rather ethnic, American mannerism is equally culturally
challenged....The notion of crasness is indeed
different in different cultures. Overall, a great book to buy so that
you can return to it and enjoy its wits and successful attempt to search for ethnic diversity.

As Czech living in Canada I really enjoyed this book. I was amused and often surprised how exactly our manners and traditions were described. I would recommend this book to anybody who are visiting Czech republic and wants to understand czech people.

I loved this book but it needs much more czech to english phrasing to help you get by while in Czech.
