Do not buy this book!

I received a host of Culture Smart books because they were free with a recent copy of Wanderlust (Mexico, Croatia, Morocco, Cambodia and Indonesia). All I had to pay was the delivery, and I can say that even that was a waste of money. They provide no useful information about the country at all, and essentially is just a reworded version of each country's Wikipedia page, any information is ridiculously vague. Do not waste your money on this. Buy a Rough Guide or Lonely Planet instead.

Almost identical 9 July 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a good guide but is almost identical to Culture Shock! Morocco: A Survival Guide to Customs and Etiquette by Orin Hargraves (Author)
So if looking for a book either of these two will do, no need to purchase both.

Perfect book for the short-stay tourist 22 Feb 2007
By J. Nass - Published on
Format: Paperback
I spent all sorts of money searching for this book (I bought 7 books in all); then found this little book, which is perfect for the tourist who wants to learn enough history, culture, geography, and language to travel well in Morocco. After reading it, cover to cover, I bought three more copies for others going to Morocco.

Worthwhile reading, even for those not going to Morocco. The book provides good insight to Muslim culture, especially in the western Maghreb.

Good general background! 21 Feb 2013
By Linda McHale Smith - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Easy, straight forward history, geography, culture for basic understanding of the country and people! Can be read straight through, or used by chapter heading as needed.

waste of money 13 May 2007
By H.W. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thinking I should know a little about the customs of a country I plan to visit, I bought this book based on a review, which highly touted it. If you're looking for useful insights, you won't find any here. This book is one of the most superficial guides I have ever come across. The information contained in it is general and generic and nothing more than can be gleaned from travel brochures.
