What is it to be Hungarian? What does it feel like? Most Hungarians are convinced that the rest of the world just doesn't get them. But Hungarians do often seem to be living proof of the old joke that Magyars are in fact Martians: they may be situated in the very heart of Europe, but they are equipped with a confounding language, extraterrestrial (albeit endearing) accents, and an unearthly way of thinking. What most Hungarians learn from life about the Magyar mind is now available, for the first time, in this user-friendly guide.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A useful and entertaining appetizer for those who are interested in the past and present of Hungary and the Hungarians."
Paul Lendvai, author of The Hungarians

"An anthology of well-written, witty, and self-critical pieces, reviving national stereotypes in tasteful, if not always PC humor. . . . Like the entries of an encyclopedia, each chapter initiates the reader into a facet of Hungarian life that is more or less obvious to Hungarians, but probably either unknown to or misunderstood by foreigners."
D niel D nyi, Hungarian Literature Online
