Authors themselves described this book as translated to Polish and more focused on practice version of Impro by Keith Johnstone. I do not think there is much worth in reviewing it beside simple rating, so I will try to make this post more about improvisation so that you can pick a book in your favourite language.
Most important three things from the book about impro are: Taking Offers, Not Blocking and Being Aware of Status.
Taking Offers - Like in "Yes Man", taking offers sacrifices safety of habits and everyday life for a chance of more exciting things to do.
Not Blocking - Connected to the first one, but more about noticing many ways in which we are blocking offers, like joking - those are not so obvious to notice but still are 'blocks'.
Status - Status Games and Status started to be something that I am fascinates me. It explains so many of my irrational behaviours...
Of course I missed most of the book as I do not really practiced much. Still book is worth read, short and if you have group interested in impro then you can use exercises from the book in a group.
