Book Description

30 Oct 2006
Culture Smart! Australia explains how to avoid cultural gaffes when out and about in the country. Giving the historical, political and cultural background, the guide reveals how to read body language and be aware of potential pitfalls in communication, and at the same time provide the cultural essentials business travellers need to successfully develop working relations in Australia. Culture Smart! Australia enables the reader to get the most out of trip, whether on business, or pleasure. Culture Smart! provides rare insights, and practical guidance, into cultures. The values, behaviour and customs of peoples have been formed over centuries which is why the unique information in Culture Smart! guides do not date in the same way as ordinary travel guides. Culture Smart! enables you to step into a world untouched by other guidebooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts a new light down under 4 Dec 2003
Absolutely brilliant book, so interesting and also a really important guide for my year long trip to Australia. Tells you so much about the ins and outs, people, history and some really vital tips. A great guide to go alongside other more map and pub orientated books!
