5.0 out of 5 stars An overall good primer on Egyptian Customs & behavior 22 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book proved to be invaluable, when I took a three week vacation to Egypt last year; alone. If you are like me and don't like to travel in groups this book will teach you how to steer away all the street vendors, camel, carriage and fellucah drivers, as well as providing some practical arabic phraseology. It really helped to turn a good trip into a great trip by helping me to avoid offending or being taken advantage of by anyone. Ms. Wilson's personal experiences in Egypt have been transalated into practical information that can benefit any potential traveler to this wonderful country.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb resource for the traveler 25 July 2000
By Dr. Susan Z. Swan - Published on Amazon.com
Wilson's book provided me with the "cultural common sense" that made for a successful stay in Egypt in June 2000. Her chatty tone invited me, as a reader, into her own experiences living in Egypt and set a context for me to be open to the warmth of the Egyptians as well as to be prepared for the very real challenges of travel here. While other books provided guidance to the sights, Wilson's provided guidance to the people and customs. I'll be returning to Egypt for future work and will rely on her book as a continuing resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy for anyone moving or travelling to Egypt 22 Jun 2000
By samantha e hutton - Published on Amazon.com
Thank God for this book! I recently have been accepted for a job in Egypt and boy did this book help me prepare. Without it I don't think I would have made it through. It's content is rich and full of great tips on local custom and it is truly in depth about the "do's & don'ts" when you get there. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read 19 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
There are two types of travel books: Those we skim through and those we read. As a book to skim, it's ok. It does not have much to reference quickly, if at all. However, as a book to read and to contemplate, it is very good. If you buy this book, take the time to read it carefully from cover to cover. Unlike a lot of commentaries on foreign culture, which tend to be trite, this author is very respectful of Egyptian culture without being ingratiating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any woman traveling to Egypt 8 Aug 2001
By Delilah E. DeMetro - Published on Amazon.com
As an American woman who had already been to Egypt and experienced many different things with regard to cultural differences, I decided to purchase this book before returning again . It was a relief to get some insight on certain situations to avoid (as a woman) and how to enjoy this wonderful country while maintaining a deep respect for it's people's beliefs and customs.
