Only one 'not so small' problem if you want to order - the field required "Please fill in the postcode in the form 100 00" so if for example UK prime minister Boris Johnson would like to order this book, there is no technical chance to put
10 Downing St, London
SW1A 2AA
into this form...

I have the book and it is GREAT!...even if you can not read Czech. For the maps, mine diagrams and photos it is well worth the price. For those in Europe, like myself, I suggest you order directly from Academia!!

On another note, I have NEVER understood UK postcodes....they are other worldish. If you can't fill out a form, I suggest you email the seller and explain. Academia will give you no problems, I know and their price is lower than the book is selling in the 'West'.

Off topic:

Let me try to help you!

First two letters are the major town, numbers are a large district, the last section refers to a few addresses in a particular street. For example (not my postcode)

SG = Stevenage, G = Glasgow, KY = Kirkaldy, etc.
19 = district near that town/city
2HF = a few houses on the street

So not as accurate as What 3 Words, but it gets you to about 1-10 addresses on a single street. Works well unless you have two identically named streets that share the first AANN N, as SatNavs use that to find the street. I do, so most deliveries to my house fail.

Railroads do the same sort of thing, with every station having a unique AA or AAA code.
