The writer of this book is British. This is the British version. Some of the fundamentals are the same here in the US, but basically this book is for those wanting to learn the basics of doing business in England. It does not say anywhere in the description that this is the British edition. And that would have been helpful in making a decision on buying this book. I wouldn't have.
