We tend to see the world from our own point of view. This little book helps you to see things from different cultural view points. If you are traveling to a different cultural region of the world, this little book is worth its weight in gold. Avoid missunderstandings and confusion about the sometimes baffling behavior of people.

I read this for one of my classes. It was great and insightful on how people of different cultures interact with each other. Highly recommend it.
