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.

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!
