Don't Leave home without it! No, not your credit card, I mean Joe
Lurie's master class of miscommunication across cultures, PERCEPTION AND
 This is a priceless book for anyone who travels and wants to
navigate the minefields of misunderstandings that arise because of
cultural differences. A lifetime of practical experience, a compendium
of cultural challenges, and a wicked wit combine to make this book an
indispensable volume for all those planning to step beyond their
cultural village. Oh, how I wish this book had been available when I
began my international career-how many fewer people I would have
inadvertently offended."
