Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overall, I found the chapters build on one another, and by the end of the book, I am confident that my students will be well-sensitized and well-equipped to take on international assignments. I have to commend the author for delivering a “handbook” in just 300 pages, without the readers (and students in particular) noticing this. All of the concepts were very easy to comprehend and well articulated. The author clearly did a tremendous job balancing challenge with appeal without losing the readers." (Eddy S.W. Ng 2011-02-28)

"An excellent, useful textbook that learners keep for the future reference." (Dr. Kumiko Watanuki 2009-08-05)

"I was very pleased at the amount of coverage given to examining the individual and to see that section two is heavily focused on psychological characteristics." (Tim Hill 2009-03-30)

He is the author of ten books, including most recently The Multicultural Mind: Unleashing the Hidden Force for Innovation in Your Organization (Berrett-Kohler Publishers). He has also authored Essentials of International Human Resource Management: Managing People Globally from SAGE Publications (with Mila B. Lazarova) and the best selling Cultural Intelligence: People Skills for Global Business, published by Berrett-Koehler Publishers (with Kerr Inkson). With Peter B. Smith and Mark F.

We used this book in our International Management class. I believe the book does a great job describing and analyzing the most common issues managers face when working in a multinational company. It has plenty of examples and it is somehow updated.
