My Book has Arrived!

In late October of 2021, I made a post about a book I had just finished writing on the Czech Republic. I’m happy to say that on April 8 of 2022, I took delivery of some sample copies of the finished product!

I’m quite happy with it overall and hope it will be helpful to anyone travelling to the Czech Republic and will make Czechs happy with how I’ve portrayed them and their culture to the rest of the world.

I’ve set up a dedicated page in the main menu of the website with more information about the book. I have nested another page under it with some suggestions of where you can order the book.

A book on the way, with my name on it!

Over the last couple of years, my posting on Beyond Prague has not been as regular as usual. There is the obvious reason of the COVID pandemic making travel more restricted. Also, WordPress changed their editor to a block type and that has taken some getting used to.

However, there has been work going on behind the scenes with the updating of some older articles and general houskeeping of the website.

The biggest news is that over the past three years I have been writing a book about the Czech Republic. In October of 2021, the writing and editing had been completed and it was sent to press. The paperback version is due for release in late January of 2022 and the eBook version in late February of 2022.

The book will be published by Kuperard Publishers as part of their “Culture Smart!” series of books designed to reduce possible culture shock for travelers.

The book is available for pre-ordering now. This link will take you to the book’s page on Kuperard’s website for the “Culture Smart!” series:
