This is basically a picture book of a relatively small number of gestures accompanied by the meaning of them in different countries. If you're looking to give kids or young adults a cultural lesson that one gesture can have different meanings, this is an entertaining way to make that point. But this book is not for someone who plans to travel overseas and wants actual information. There are too few gestures and too few countries covered.

The complexity of human language its development and symbols including hand gestures is the stuff of science and text book. This book is not that book, thank goodness. Instead you take a global tour of language, culture and of, well Us. Through the use of simple, bold and minimal images and the translations of what these hand gestures mean around the world.

It is both informative and fun. And as a designer I have to admit I love the elegant look of the book. And as a traveler, I hope I can remember what to do and not to do with my hands when I am far from home.

I love this book! Don't Get Me Wrong!: The Global Gestures Guide

Useless, wast of money, not very informative. I suppose on the positive it has a few hand gestures for remote places that most people won't ever he going. For instance: Liechtenstein, not truely remote but how many people who buy this book are going there; Iran, Iraq,Afghanistan, Egypt...a little war touring maybe; or page after page of counting from 1 to 10 in "most of western europe". If you are a curiosity seeker then waste your money, like I did...though I wish I hadn't.

Poorly organized. Would have been more useful if organized to show different interpretations of a given gesture. Much irrelevant e.g. gesture women in Zimbabwe use for "thank you". A single star rating is too high.
