    1. The authors have collected analysed data from 50 nationalities along 7 dimensions of thought behaviour, and their findings are presented in easily digestible form here, using a case study of an American HR officer trying to understand why an American style bonus programme isn t received favourably in other parts of the world.A lot of the insight and advice seems believable, and about what you would expect maybe we ve all become a bit attuned to national characteristics in the nearly 20 years si [...]

    2. I understand the point of this book, but I think this whole concept of grouping all members of a specific culture into one group just leads to unnecessary stereotyping This book is useful in identifying and navigating the differences on an individual level with the various people you may need to work professionally with globally or just within your local office but all Chinese Danish Italian etc workers do not think the same way any than all American workers think the same way or all of any gro [...]

    4. This was really interesting I ran out of time b f B school but plan on picking it up again Lots of stats re how different people from difference countries operate Lots of aha s.

    6. I read this book than 15years ago after having met the author He was remarkable in his insights into why various cultures think the way they do, and how that impacts business.

    7. I had to read this for school Some good info in here Interesting to see all the diagrams of how other countries respond on various issues Helpful for thinking about framing your work and interacting with other cultural groups At least a good way to start thinking about the idea that other cultures have different working styles and that it s important for us to try to understand them.
