    While detailed, it does not go too deep into the years post-1968. The chapters are set up to examine a particular aspect of events so it is not a pure linear in the timeline. The author stops short of drawing a conclusion but leaves it quite clear that it was the squabbles between a few that left dead bodies of the innocent and deep political scars in its wake.

    At first it was just an another history book with a slightly humorous language. But as I turned more pages it dragged me and suddenly I fell in the streets of Prague.Beautifully written and informative.I started reading it because I'm working on my first novel which is based on Prague.I thought it will help me to visualize the scenes.And bang!!!!I enjoyed it so much.
