I don't know if anyone here is going to know what chutzpah is in English, even, but it's a Yiddish term that refers to great audacity or nerve. A New Yorker cartoon once put it very succinctly: a guy walks into a bookstore and says to the clerk "I'm looking for a book on chutzpah and I want you to pay for it". How do you say this in Chinese? I have come up with 大胆，无礼and 勇气 but I'm not sure any of them really conveys the same sorts of meaning.
