3.0 out of 5 stars Hard Reading
I got this book for a multicultural communications class. It is interesting to read about certain concepts which the author dissects and labels, but it is a very hard read. I can usually ignore distractions, but this book requires all of my concentration. Sometimes I have to read a sentence a couple of times before I understand the information. Let's just say that this...

I got this book for a multicultural communications class. It is interesting to read about certain concepts which the author dissects and labels, but it is a very hard read. I can usually ignore distractions, but this book requires all of my concentration. Sometimes I have to read a sentence a couple of times before I understand the information. Let's just say that this author does NOT use plain English, so keep a dictionary handy.

Interface: Poetry and Selected Readings, Volume One, 2010

This book is an average introduction to cultures book. The fonts is somewhat small and you may need reading glasses. There are a lot of definitions which is good. Informative for the beginner but I feel that the price should be dropped. Somewhat costly.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting book, but ultimately, April 17, 2010

This review is from: Among Cultures: The Challenge of Communication (with InfoTrac) (Paperback)
It's really just a textbook. Hall describes the various aspects of culture and intercultural communication in a series of chapters designed to give students a unique insight into what happens in the world of diversity. It's an interesting book that has it's flaws-despite the talk about anti-stereotyping, Hall ends up doing it anyways, but these flaws hardly detract from the wealth of information in here. I wouldn't recommend this book for bedtime reading, but you should probably be glad if your teacher assigns it for a class.

I got this book for one of my classes, and it was okay. I feel like there are a lot of generalizations in this book, so you can't really believe everything to be 100% true.

It's okay. I bought it for school because it was required. I never read the assigned readings and only perused it a little.
