Publisher's Summary

Just say Nu is a practical guide to using Yiddish words and expressions in day-to-day situations. Along with enough grammar to enable readers to put together a comprehensible sentence and avoid embarrassing mistakes, Wex also explains the five most useful Yiddish words: shoyn, nu, epes, takeh, and nebakh. He explains what they mean, how and when to use them, and how they can be used to conduct an entire conversation without anybody ever suspecting that the listener doesn't have the vaguest idea of what anyone is actually saying.

Listeners will learn how to "shmooze" their way through such activities as meeting and greeting, eating and drinking, praising and finding fault, maintaining personal hygiene, going to the doctor, driving, parenting, getting horoscopes, committing crimes, going to singles bars, having sex, talking politics, and talking trash.

People have finally started to realize that there's nothing in the world that can't be improved by translating it into Yiddish. Just say Nu is the audiobook that will tell them how.

Really Funny

Written and narrated by the author, Michael Wex delivers his topic as nobody else ever could. Am I fluent in Yiddish now? No, but I sure hope he writes more (and narrarates more) books!
