This was a great book when it came out - anybody working in Brussels at the time would still love it. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated - it could be fabulous with so many more countries now in the EU.

Factual, Funny, Fabulous!!11 Oct. 2000
- Published on Amazon.com
As an Australian in Europe trying to study and work, this book provided me with some fantastic tips on what and what not to do when!! The mix of anecdotes and factual content means that it is very readable and they relaxed style and humour are very refreshing!! For any non-European it is a definate must, whether you are going over to work or to study and irrespective of what country you are going to! The appropriate theoretical basis and use of Hofstede's cultureal dimensions give Richard Hill credibility and allow reades of any education level to understand the points being made. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative read!
