5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding cultural overview 6 Jan 2008
By David - Published on
This book presents a very current, accurate and insightful overview of Estonian culture. Each topic is presented clearly and concisely but in appropriate depth: land and people, values and attitudes, festivals and celebrations, making friends, daily life, time out, traveling, business briefing, communicating. The book is an excellent companion to travel guides like the Lonely Planet or Bradt series (which I also recommend). It is a must-read for anyone with more than a passing interest in this small but fascinating nation, and will be of great benefit to travelers and businesspeople planning to spend any appreciable time (read: more than a day or two) in Estonia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cultural examination 21 Mar 2013
By dannyswafford - Published on
The book gives a good understanding of how the Estonian culture is, and also gives background information about why. When discussion religion, it examines the Lutheran history, the Soviet restrictions on religion, and the effects those restrictions have to these days. The book discusses a wide variety of cultural stereotypes, disproves some, and expands on others. It is an in-depth look, it doesn't simply just take talking points and go with them. Research is done, and first hand experiences are provided. It provides a good overview of the issues that the country finds itself dealing with (good and bad), and is good for travelers to understand cultural norms.
