This review is from: The Culture Map: Breaking Through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business (Hardcover)
I loved this book. The pages are packed with substantial, insightful information about how culture impacts communication and cross cultural negotiation. I have had three citizenships and have lived in four countries and feel that Professor Meyer is "spot on" in her analysis of subtle and complex patterns and variations in what different cultures consider to be good business practises. Her eight scale model outlines key differences in areas including (but not limited to) expressiveness, leadership, confrontation, and decision making and provides a clear and elegant summary of these differences for managers and individuals who are interested in the impact of cultural variations. An excellent guide for business people, it is also valuable for travellers who seek deeper understanding of countries they are visiting, Last, but not least, its a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
