Nancy Fox, President
The book is a timely reminder of how we must coexist harmoniously in an increasingly multicultural society. It is very enjoyable to read (much easier than a typical academic treatise), and the exercises in the back are a fun way to reinforce the learning process. All in all, I highly recommend it.
"Decoding" is the key word throughout all chapters. The attempt to decode art, people and cultures is usually approached by scholars in different disciplines. The uniqueness of this book is in that Prof. Aall integrates these through a unified methodology and, in doing so, the whole becomes more than the sum of its parts. Her deep knowledge of both Western and Eastern cultures adds authority to her observations. I keep the book at hand's distance!
