I can't say exactly that I love this book, I mean it was for grad school, not my entertainment. But it served me well in my course and I learned the information needed to get an A, as well as be well versed in organizational management. I am hoping this knowledge helps me as I move up in my career.

This was a good book to learn a little about Intercultural Communication. I wish that there were more examples in the book, or that it went into greater details. Some of the concepts were confusing as well, but overall it was enlightening.

This is a textbook for one of my graduate courses. It's a fairly easy read, presenting the subject matter in a clear and interesting way (though that perspective could be somewhat skewed by my background in business/international studies/international business).

Frankly, this is the best Management book that I have read! It is indispensable especially if you have anything to do with international management or if you are going overseas on business/personal reasons. It helps you understand the various cultures around the world and will definitely help you avoid the cultural blunders in other countries. Get it! I have rented this book but I will buy one for myself as a guide to international cultures. Very well written! Ms. Adler is a true genius to take such an extraordinarily complex topic as culture and then similify it in such a clear, lucid manner! The author is a genius! I hope I can meet her in person one day and pick her brains! My professor at UT Dallas, Prof. Habte Woldu, is also such a wonderful teacher! He is the perfect professor to teach this course on International Management and this is the best book for this course! Thank you Ms. Adler!

Ok. So I purchased this book for class. It was very dry and boring to me. The information was very useful, but I found it very hard to read. I don't know if it is the organization or what. If you have to purchase this book for class, you have my sympathy.

I had to buy this book for my organizational psychology class for my human behavior program. I don't see myself wanting to read it again once I'm done with my masters like I plan to do with several of my other books. This book seemed awkwardly written and often times boring and drawn out.

Order barely made the cutoff date and when received, I can definitely tell someone printed this book out in their house. Pages are out of order (from the original 5th Version, as I had a classmate scan me the Chapters being used). Chapter pages don't match and even missing pages. Would not recommend this product/seller even if it was an emergency!

Format: Paperback
I bought the first edition of this in 1991 & it is brilliant - and accurate. I have spent much of my career working for US companies that continue to make the most basic mistakes when dealing with "aliens", such as the need to exert power & control, authoritation vs persuasion. One of the basics - which I'd like to see Dr Adler cover - is the assumption that because some other countries also speak English that American behaviours & assumptions apply in those countries. The book also has a secondary advantage that it could be read as a "how to do foreign policy" book for the US, given Gulf 2 issues with say Europe.

Essential reading for anyone that really wants to be global & not just multi-national.
