4.0 out of 5 stars Kenya and my Kikuyu firends 23 Nov 2007
By Erika Warren - Published on
I spent three months in Kenya living with people from the Kikuyu tribe working at an orghanage in Dagoretti Market. I wish I had read this book before going. Now I have a better understanding of Kenya and it's wonderful people. When I go back next year I will take the book and hopefully improve my ability to integrate closer. I still know very few words in Kikuyu!

Thank you for the information in this well written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenya culture smart is great 24 Jan 2010
By Larry Hartke - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a fair amount of experience working and traveling in Kenya, and I think the author has hit all the main issues a visitor should be aware of. It's not hard to get along in Kenya as long as one doesn't try to push western standards onto everything that occurs. This book will speed up the adjustment for anyone wanting to spend some time in one of the most beautiful and challenging countries on earth.

I ordered this book to get a bit more insight on the country since we are traveling there this summer on a mission trip. Our family found it easy to read and so interesting. I feel I am even more prepared for an amazing trip within a beautiful country and it's special people.

I have made over 35 trips to this amazing, and ever intriguing country. Yet I learned some new things in this guide. If that is true for some one like me, I think it would be very valuable for a first time visitor

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good intro 5 Jan 2014
By toolman - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Great if you want to learn the basics on Kenyan history, people, and culture. There are some practical dos/don't dos and it covers many of the basic things tourists and business people making a short trip there would want to know.
