Insightful and filled with perspective, this book reveals one mana€™s personal experience and views about Ireland. In this riveting page-turner, author Przemek Kolasinski presents his colorful depiction of this country in a deeply subjective manner.

As readers will browse through the exhilarating pages of What I Got from Ireland, they will inevitably feel the energies of the vivacious characters, as well as watch vividly the painted images of breathtaking locations in their imaginative minda€™s eye, hence allowing them to travel, without leaving the comforts of their own homes.

Since the TV guide also contains articles, advice, recipes, etc., a€œGazeta Polskaa€ has no need to. For example, we can read about the lives of Polish movie stars not in the weekly itself , but in its adda€”on. The colourful TV guide from Poland composes an indirect form ofanbsp;...
