An enjoyable, easy to read book. There are other books that go deeper into characteristics of different cultures. This is a good place to start. Learn about two cultural classifications thru the stories of the authors experiences. The differences are not judged as right or wrong, just different. In this world of ever mixing cultures, it will help you to understand your neighbors and co-workers who come from a different culture.
