This book about India takes a brief look at the history of the country, before looking at values, customs, makings friends, family life, leisure time, travel, health and other travel tips, before finishing on chapters about business and communication. The chapters are broken up into bite sized chunks which makes this easy to read and dip in and out of. It also had various photos throughout, although rather frustratingly these aren't labelled so you know what you are looking at! This offers plenty of advice to dodge the most obvious social faux pas and should help you get the most out of your time in the country and in your relationships with its citizens.
This is pocket sized which makes it easy to carry and it is of a short enough length that makes it perfect to read through on your outward bound flight to India. I have always enjoyed the Culture Smart series for the insight into some amazing places around the world and this guide to India is no exception. Well worth a look in your India holiday/business trip preparations.

Found a very much different, real, India when I got there...
It's all very well to read but holds no water when it comes to non-tourists places but real cities with real people inside...
