Being Polish is no joke. For the millions of people of Polish ancestry outside of Poland, as well as many who have settled in the UK since the fall of communism, it is a heartfelt matter - and amid all the travel guides to Polish language, folklore and customs, there is no single, comprehensive, reader-friendly and informative reference to what it means to be Polish. Enter The Essential Guide to Being Polish - the go-to concise resource to anyone looking to reconnect with their Polish background - or anyone interested in learning more about the culture.
