  1. This is a fantastic book Whether you are into sociology, travel or you are just talking with someone from a different part of your city, there are cultural differences that will destroy your ability to effectively communicate Lanier points out these common differences based on global geographic regions The application of this material will happen every time to talk to someone who is from a different communication culture For me, since I am from out West and I have spent years in the military, th [...]


  2. This is a fantastic overview of major issues and the large scale choices that cultures and subcultures can make on those topics Instead of trying to give horribly inaccurate tips for each nation that will rapidly become outdated, the author examines questions like, How do a group of people view the start time of an event In the example of a wedding that starts at 2 o clock, some cultures will understand that they need to have finished their preparations and be ready for the ceremony to begin at [...]


  3. This book is a very good eye opener to what you think of as familiar might not be familiar to others I am in charge of organizing short term mission trips for my church Someone recommended that I read this book I now implement this book with other resources before I send the groups We have had several good conversations based on this book Know before you go is another good book for the short term mission trip application I would say anyone travelling internationally should read this to open thei [...]


  4. I love that the book provides some broad strokes of areas to think about and what might be different than you are used to or expecting when entering into a new culture or coming into contact with people of other cultures It provided good tips for people crossing cultures in either direction, from hot to cold or cold to hot, yet the book remains a quick, short read it keeps things simple and doesn t get bogged down with exceptions or too many examples Everything is just right in that sweet spot i [...]


  5. This book is a great book for all who not only travel to other countries, but who also have day to day dealings with people of other cultures I have found it to be invaluable and wish that I had it 30 years ago when I first went overseas and lived in another culture although it was the same type from which I came.I have purchased this for a friends who pastor an international church and will do so for several others in the future When our teams travel to South America from our colder North Ameri [...]


  6. I always recommend this book for everyone I know that goes abroad and everyone that reads it has the same response, now I understand why they do things so different in x country I ve seen so many people s perspectives go from judging other cultures to understanding by reading this book It s short, clear, easy to understand but so powerful It is such an easy read you could probably finish it on your flight to wherever you are going I live abroad and I make it required reading for anyone coming to [...]


  7. This book is so informative I have read other books on worldwide cultures, but this one, even though it s amazingly short, goes deeper and is so easy to read It has even helped me understand the disconnect I ve had living in Texas after having been raised in the Midwest by a British mother.


  8. Yes, this is a great book if you re traveling abroad I also suggest that it s a great book in seeking to understand some of the nuanced behavior of the Millennials we work with All culture is on a continuum from hot to cold on numerous dimensions By understanding and appreciating these differing culture norms, we can build a greater understanding and appreciation that our Millennial children, grandchildren and employees exhibit.


  9. I read this book with the aim of understanding my cultural blind spots I found it illuminating, and very practical.The book is easy to read, and makes its main points very well.However those looking for in depth analysis and a scientific approach to culture and anthropology should steer clear.All in all it s a simple, easy, and practical read


  10. I found this a most enlightening book, it answers a lot of unasked questions about why people behave and react in the way they do and how some societies function A must read for anyone heading to either side of the Equator, before they go.
