    The Geography of Thought

    An interesting book on how different cultures think differently and why that may be. I think this book helps readers be tolerant and thoughtful of both their own, and others' beliefs and behavior, and allows us to understand one another better.

    Excellent

    I found Nisbett's book to be quite engaging. I first stumbled upon it at a bookstore while I was attending graduate school last year and couldn't stop reading it! I ended up purchasing it once I graduated and completed the book within a few short weeks. It definitely changed my perspective on how cognitive processes differ between cultures. Now, as a behavioral health care consultant, I find Nisbett's analysis to be a highly comprehensive tool for understanding how other societies could potentially interpret projects that our firm implements. Finally, and most important, I believe Nisbett hit a strong note by including analysis on second-generation Asian Americans, a group to which I belong. His analysis allowed me to better understand my own method of cognition.

    AmerAsians and EuroAmericans Meet

    Nisbett uses Greek and Chinese philosophies and cultural differences with some simple experiments to prove his hypothesis. More important than Nixon's memoires about China. I can use this information in my own daily life with my Asian European family. Now i know why my Asian friends are brilliant thinkers! I really get it after years of studying Latin, Spanish, French, and now Japanese. A great book for the open mind. Not recomended for small minded bigoted thinkers or religious zealots. But even they will benefit from this masterful work. Great book for college professors and other teachers including parents.

    Facinating

    Nisbitt's and his students have measured a number of significant cognitive differences between East Asians and Western people. I found this fascinating and a challenge to other ideas that suggest innateness of intellect.

    Brilliant

    Brilliant, lucid, economical. You must read this book if you are interested in human psychology, neurology, anthropology, or any of the social sciences.
