Review by: Ibolya Berenyi on July 15, 2013 :
Hungary through the eyes of an American! An interesting and useful book. I recommend it to everyone who is interested in the history, past and present of this small Central Eastern European country. Although many people are familiar with Hungary many do not know much about it. There are a lot of clich├ęs and prejudice in people's minds. The author knows the country very well and in his book he shares his own experiences with the reader giving unbiased picture and useful information about the places he has visited. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to both who have been or intend to visit Hungary.
