5.0 out of 5 stars Great summary 2 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really impressed with this book and have learned a lot from it. The way the content is laid out is helpful as you can chose to read it all or dip into the bits you want to know. The chapter contents are well thought out and contain just the right level of information. It is easy to read with lots of content that is written in a way that is easy to read.

Overall very enjoyable and I formative - wish there was one of these for every country!

4.0 out of 5 stars No help for the woman business traveler, otherwise very good. 8 July 2007
By Nancy Beiman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this four stars instead of five since the section on business custom does not describe how business women should dress and behave in Singapore. There's the passing remark that women should only initiate handshakes when one is introduced to a (presumably male) colleague; otherwise, there is nothing about how to dress or behave when working in Singapore. Can we wear pants? or must we wear skirts?
The chapter about dining etiquette and entertaining was fascinating. I'll keep this around for my upcoming trip but only wish that it was a bit more helpful on the distaff side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Singapore: Culture Smart was ok 11 Dec. 2009
By Singa Expat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't find this book particularly useful - the information was pretty straightforward and very general. Wouldn't recommend - you can get all this cultural info online with a bit of research.
