Besides its brevity and well designed layout this book also excels at clarity. Many authors try to say the same thing but in far too many words. Kramsch has managed to write a book that is an asset to the series.
There is nothing new or startling in the contents of the book. Nor, given its short length, is everything from the field included. However, she has done a fine job of selecting the pertinent information that is "must know" in this field.
So, to best appreciate this short intro. to culture, read C&C first.
To the frustrated engineering-student-teacher assistant, irritated that such simple ideas as "culture", "communication" and "understanding" are made less simple by Kramsch: Perhaps these concepts are not so simple after all.
