I am a Czech speaker so I figured I'd chime in, as the other reviews don't really portray this book correctly.

A number of these expressions will make you sound like a sleezy, vulgar teenager ("Hey dogg, look at those tits?" Seriously?) or a Czech Valley Girl/ similar airhead. You do not want to talk to acquaintances like this, much less people you don't know (even in a party setting). You will get funny stares if you say this loud enough for respectable people to hear. As for the other half of the book, there are some useful greetings or slang phrases that you can use with your buddies. In this respect, it may be worth it to you. However, I would wager it's just another cheesy phrase book that won't be of much use. I'd recommend browsing this book before buying (click "look inside" on the title page.)

I grew up speaking both Czech and English, and let me tell you, this book is actually pretty awful.

Like one reviewer said, you're just going to sound like vulgar middle school boy who figured out what the word "tits" means.

Just talk to a person who speaks Czech. Or even Google it. Google is right often!

As another reviewer pointed out, better to enter into meaningful conversation than to try and shock others. This book is more a product of the patho-adolescent society that tends to predominate in the West. Check out engoi.com for a free and useful site.

My grandma absolutely LOVES this book and is swearing all the time now. It's hysterical to watch her... and if my Grandma can pick up a language from a book, then you know it's easily explained and well done.

Borrow it if you can, don't buy. I didn't think it was very good. I'm sure there is something better.

If you're planning a trip to Prague or Cesky Krumlov or any of the beautiful places in the Czech Republic, find room in your backpack for a copy of Martin Blaha's "Dirty Czech". Packed with insider tips about the language and culture, this book is a Rosetta Stone for the pub-crawler. I am visiting the Czech Republic in October, and I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to read and study "Dirty Czech".

If you've done any amount of traveling around the world, you know that any attempt to speak the language of the country you're visiting is greatly appreciated by the locals. Saying please, thank you, you're welcome, and excuse me in the native tongue will always be helpful. But if you really want to connect with the locals, really enhance your trip and get a true taste of the country you need to learn the slang and the way the residents truly talk. "Dirty Czech" is the book that will help you with that.

While you might not have the occasion in Prague to say "Splachni to! Nechi vedet tvy hovno!" (Flush it! I don't wanna see your s--t!), it's hilarious to know that you could utter those words at any moment. But if you're single and looking to meet a girl or guy, going up to somebody in a bar and saying "Co si das? Je to na me" (What are you having? It's on me) could be the perfect conversation starter. And if after a few drinks that beautiful stranger whispers to you "Totalne me rajcujes" you'll know that you're not going back to your hostel alone because they just said, "I'm totally hot for you." However, if he or she mutters "Nodlim se k smrti" (I'm bored out of my skull), probably best to talk to somebody else.

I really enjoyed reading "Dirty Czech", and I'm going to continue to practice with it right up until I leave for Prague. It will certainly make the trip with me, and will be in my pocket as I walk the streets, tour the sites, hit the bars, and talk to the locals.

A lot of things and phrases you would not find in any dictionary. Things that you would need to know if living there
