The Complete Idiot's Guide to Cultural Etiquette

by Carol Turkington

Surviving in a foreign country may sometimes seem a bit like playing a game of Monopoly without knowing the rules-Park Place, Marvin Gardens, all those railroads-and what's the deal with that little iron, anyway? In much the same way, making sense of other cultures without any preparation can be a frustrating and downright difficult undertaking if you don't know the score. When you're in a foreign country, the signs don't make sense, buses operate under a set of alien rules, and how do you decipher the body language and intent of the natives when "no" seems to mean "yes" and people keep giving you shocked looks for behavior that wouldn't raise an eyebrow back home? This book will help guide you through the mystifying minefield of international culture-when to do the right thing, when to avoid the wrong thing, and how to understand the difference. This book gives an overview of each country, discussing how to dress, eat, entertain (and be entertained!), tip (or not tip!), speak, negotiate, barter, and travel into and out of the countries of our world. It also informs you how to avoid problems of health and safety, and who to call if you've plunged in recklessly anyway and gotten into trouble. In short, it's a handy sidekick to keep you out of trouble, something you can turn to when you've kissed instead of bowed, or shaken instead of stirred. Whether you're leaving the safe haven of your own country for business or pleasure, the more you learn about other cultures, the better you will be able to decipher foreign attitudes and actions, making you a more sophisticated, sensitive, and successful ambassador.
