Editorial Reviews

Review

"Affordable and reader friendly...In today's multicultural world, it is important to keep in mind the context (setting) when communicating with people from different cultures. This text considers various communication contexts and emphasizes the proper skills needed to effectively communicate." (Deandre Poole)

It is an up-to-date presentation of the topic with very helpful student assessments as to where they fit in dealing with each issue. Objectives are clear for every chapter, thus enabling the students to identify what they should be able to know and do after completing each. One of the most helpful resources for faculty who travel and/or teach abroad in preparing them to communicate cross-culturally. (Robert Wright 2011-11-02)

Don't buy this. please.
Michael Moore
If this is what passes for communication, maybe we don't really have much to say to each other and should all fall silent.
Mothertomany
This is NOT a book about intercultural communication.

I was looking for a book about stomping on Jesus, man this one really fit the bill. Sure, there are other books about stomping on Jesus, but this is really the authority on the matter. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more coverage of stomping on Buddha, considering that the title of this book is "Intercultural Communication" so it loses one star for that.

I read this whole book for a masters class in intercultural communication. This book is very well written and helpful. It also has an online component with web quizzes that we helpful in preparing for my mid-term and final exams.

Seriously, the most ridiculous course I've ever taken in my 4yrs in college. The book was ridiculous in read and nothing of importance.

Format: Paperback
This textbook is a clear and detailed discussion of the complexities of communicating across a variety of languages and cultural boundaries. The reviews that have been recently posted are flaming attacks on the book not for it's value, but for one potential discussion contained in one lesson within the book and the poor manner in which the instructor applied that lesson to a college classroom of allegedly grown adults. Unfortunately, other allegedly grown adults are not capable of distinguishing between a textbook and a professor, so they have chosen to attack the textbook in their misguided fury. For anyone truly interested in understanding the effects of ignorance upon intercultural communication, please read the comments and purchase the textbook. Both are very enlightening.

There is nothing intercultural about this book, and even less nothing about communication. Waste of space, rambling, with no real content of any usefulness. I feel like it was a huge waste of money, and did not offer anything of value.

Format: Paperback
The book starts out strong with a table of contents, and is nicely organized into chapters with words - something that the author, given his writing skills, should be proud of. But from there, it veers into a venerable wasteland of random thoughts - akin to writing under the influence of bad LSD. In fact, it appears that the incoherent babbling that is being passed off as "writing" is really no more than "mushrooms gone mad".

The author, starting on page 1, quickly entangles himself in a mental knot that leads to endless "chapters" of psychedelic prose. What's with the perverse attraction to Marsha Brady, and why is Peter not even acknowledged? Passed off as "paragraphs", these written trips would be laughable - except for the fact that as Christians, we forgive the sinner. Much like Alice never complained about her lot in life.

Verbal codes, Nonverbal codes, secret codes, fire codes, code pink - how can anyone be expected to follow along? The book is filled with paranoid rants. It falls short of its intended objective: addressing the stress and communication friction of the Brady household. Save your money. Sam the Butcher wouldn't wrap meat with the pages from this book.
