5.0 out of 5 stars Fun insight into different cultures 16 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this book when I was studying my MBA, lost it and recently bought an updated version. It's really easy to read and has some fun exercises. Try one when you're next with friends, or in the pub to see how they respond - very insightful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 29 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
Having referenced this book as a student many years ago and also as a international working professional, I find that Mr Trompenaars was remarkable in his insights into why various cultures think the way they do, and how that impacts on business still prevalent today.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Price Higher than Even the Hardcover Version 13 Dec 2012
By No Music No Life - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Amazon customer service asked me to write this comment that the Kindle book is US$33.63. This is more expensive than the paperback which is US$24.09 and even the hardback which is US$29.70. This pricing needs to be adjusted so that the Kindle edition is cheaper than the paperback. Could the publisher and Amazon please look into this matter as promptly as possible please? Then please delete "review".
