our countries are perceived around the world. We are now getting to be more global for sure. The future lies on getting better at using our world partners. Quite interesting to see how other cultures deal with body and literal language. Book was in excellent physical condition too--Thank you Amazon.
For more details, I would highly recommend "Understanding Global Cultures Metaphorical Journeys Through 34 Nations" by Martin J. Gannon and Rajnandini Pillai which covers fewer countries, but in more detail.
However, if you are fascinated by cultures, reading the whole thing end to end is absolutely worth it. Understanding how cultures operate similarly and differently is key in today's increasingly globalized market, and comparing cultures not only to American culture but to each other, within regions and between continents, is a real eye opener.
Practical and persuasive, no matter where you are going to do business, Kiss, Bow, Or Shake Hands is a great place to start.
It's a little outdated (2006, I think). That was 12 years ago, and in China, for example, a lot has changed.
It's also very business-oriented. I can make use of it in school, but that's not the focus of the book. Still, it's useful.
Just realized that most African countries are NOT there!! Just South Africa and Egypt. What about some others???? I have a lot of clients from Nigeria, and was hoping to read up on them. How can you omit the whole continent like that??
Top international reviews
This book gives excellent, well written summaries of over 60 different races and has been an invaluable source of insight in my dealings (so far) with the French, Dutch, Germans, Americans and Belgians. I'm British.
It's a tad bulky for "Carry on luggage" when flying but I think it's been worth it.
If you work with other cultures I think it's a "must have" - and not only that it's an entertaining read!
Serve muito como consulta quando for visitar ou fazer negócio como representantes desses países.
O texto de cada país também inclui uma parte da história do mesmo, o que ajuda a entender um pouco mais sobre o contexto como um todo.
I deducted a star because sometimes comments for countries may seem very similar and I wondered if whomever wrote a country description had really been there or actually had on-the-ground experience.
However, it's really a very helpful book and I'd recommend it highly.
why are those guys not too many kilometres away that different.
As a German I found the picture of us Germans pretty good. Not that I wanted to learn about us but I am used to measure
quality, I don't rely on common opinion in it's very extent. Example for us: Never have the idea to improve something you
offered, it generates distrust.
So far, I like this book very much - but I'll let you know if I change my opinion.
