Luck has nothing to do with it!

Of course you want to be Irish. Look what it did for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sinead, Maeve Binchy, Roddy Doyle, JFK, Seamus Heaney, Angela's Ashes, and all those Riverdancers. But until now, the secrets of how to be Irish have been hidden in a Celtic Twilight of blather and blarney.
Now this easy-to-read (with plenty o' pictures) handbook dares to tell you:

  How to have an Irish name
  How to talk, look, and act Irish    
  How to vote Irish  
  How to have thin skin, a terrible temper, and the gift of gab

Whether you're proudly Irish, anti-Irish, fallen-away Irish, or would-be Irish--that is to say, if you're a living, breathing human being--How to Be Irish is for you.

Learn (to your surprise) who's really Irish and who's only passing!        

Discover (to your astonishment) your own underground Irish roots!        

And brace yourself, Bridget, for the shocking (if brief) history of Irish-American sex!
