I want to start by saying this isn't a bad book at all, I just don't think there is a whole lot new here. If this is the first or only resource you have used for learning about different cultures then it is a great book. Perhaps I'm a little jaded because I've read several pieces on this topic but while this book is well organized and well written, I just personally didn't take a whole lot away from it.

I was panicking about doing a research paper for my Intercultural Communications class until I got this book. It's geared towards the differences between mainstream U.S. culture and three mainstream European cultures. It's easy to read without skimping on info. I only wish Intercultural Press had similar books for Wales.
