I have been backwards and forwards to Austria over the last two years and plan to spend significantly more time there in the future.

I was given this but found it to be an excellent and authoritative summary of the country, its customs and culture. While not so long, in an interesting written style, it takes you through:

- A little of Austria's history to set the context.
- the attitudes and values of society.
- customs and traditions.
- perhaps most importantly how people socially interact with each other and their values and norms.
- a little about shopping, banking, eating, drinking and travelling.
- advice for doing business in Austria
- communication and the media.

There were many things that I had observed before reading this - the Austrian love of their titles / qualifications for instance - that when I read similar comments it made other aspects of the book come alive.

So in summary, if you expect to live/socialise do business in Austria I would highly recommend you read this.

Got the Kindle version, don't! You need to be able to find what you need quickly in a guide but this capability is not provided. The info in it is OK - Get it in paperback!
