Understanding foreign cultures
4 stars By Peter, Jul 18 2007
This book proved invaluable in understanding the difference in thinking between Anglo-Saxon and Latin people. It has helped me as a missionary in  Italy and also preparing people to work in other cultural environments. It opened my mind to see that people are not wrong, just different, and that their culture is determined by their history and geography.
If more people read this book I think it would reduce a lot of prejudice and negative thinking and improve communication.
