5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction into Azerbaijani customs
I've used CultureSmart's essential guides before and always found them useful from the business angle when working with other cultures or nationalities. Knowing Azerbaijan fairly well, and being well-versed on the various guidebooks on the country, I wasn't sure if this guide would teach me something new or be up to date with the evolving Azerbaijani customs, but I wasn't...

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but short!
There aren't many books on visiting Azerbaijan so this was a nice quick read but would have liked a bit more about Baku and what to do whilst there. The history is interesting

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction into Azerbaijani customs, 8 Aug 2011
This review is from: Azerbaijan - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs and Culture (Paperback)
I've used CultureSmart's essential guides before and always found them useful from the business angle when working with other cultures or nationalities. Knowing Azerbaijan fairly well, and being well-versed on the various guidebooks on the country, I wasn't sure if this guide would teach me something new or be up to date with the evolving Azerbaijani customs, but I wasn't to be disappointed: Nikki Kazimova clearly knows her homeland very well and has not lost touch with the ever-changing culture and customs as Azerbaijan sets out on the world stage.
I can see this book being very useful for both business and tourist traveller alike and highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very approacable, 28 April 2014

This was the perfect accompaniment to other travel guides, such as The Lonely Planet. It does not purport to tell you where to go and what to visit, rather, it paves the way to understanding the people and customs of the country. It covers everything from values and attitudes to business meetings; family living to getting around in Baku, and many many more points in-between.
I read it while I was a tourist in Azerbaijan and found the answers to many questions that arose while I was there. At 169 pages, it was an easy task to read it from cover to cover, frequently reading snippets out to my fellow travellers.
I haven't come across this series before, but from now on I will be sure to purchase the relevant book before travelling to an unknown country.

Lovely book but will be a single reading. I was only there for a few days so perhaps not getting the most out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't leave home for Azerbaijan without reading this book!, 8 May 2011
This review is from: Azerbaijan - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs and Culture (Paperback)
This book is highly informative and very readable. Every aspect of Azerbaijani everyday life and business culture is thoughtfully reviewed with travelers and expat workers in mind. No one should head for Azerbaijan without reading Nikki Kazimova's excellent book! - Azerbaijan - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs and Culture
