Angelo Colorni is at it again.

After the success of his Israel for Beginners: A Field Guide for Encountering the Israelis in their Natural Habitat (Gefen), which I reviewed in these pages four years ago, the Italian-born author sheds more light on the country and its natives in Israel for Advanced Beginners: Everything you wanted to know about the Israelis (but were too mad to ask).
