From the Author
My first job was with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as an administrative intern.
The combination of study and travel didn't bother me. I was working with different cultures and expanding my knowledge on what makes people tick in organisations.
In 1999, after 12 years with KLM, I decided it was time for a change.
In 2007 I started the company Culture Matters. I wanted to fully focus on Cultural Awareness Training and have been doing so ever since.
With the Internet all around us and the ongoing globalisation I think it is of absolute importance to be Culturally Competent when you're working Internationally.
I am passionate about giving Cultural Awareness Training and am sure I will be for years!

This book offers great explanations and advice on that. The author sounds like a man who knows what he is talking about and writes in an understandable and compelling manner.
I don't think that most people realize just how different and challenging it can be to do business with someone from a completely different cultural background and with different sense of what is "normal" and what is not. The only thing I don't like in this book is too many unnecessary blank pages and links on youtube videos. I don't like when I have to go somewhere else on the web to see part of the content from the book, but that is just me, maybe most of the people don't mind that. Other than that, I recommend this book.

Good first read on the subject and nice illustration of the cultural characterization
The anecdotes are well chosen, too.
