5.0 out of 5 stars a Theory of culture, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cultures and Organizations: Software of the Mind, Third Edition (Paperback)
My only qualification in this field is that I lived for 12 years abroad (of France), but I have never studied, nor been really interested in sociology. This book present a very clear and convincing taxonomy of cultures along 5 dimensions : weight of hierarchy, individualism vs collectivism, masculine values vs femine, fear of uncertainity, short term vs long term. These dimensions seem to be meaningful. A posteriori, I could understand and evaluate the behavior in countries I lived in. I used it in a conference and people were interested and quick to get the feeling of what was behind.
I would recommand it as a first book for comparing culture and national ways of manage, lived, behave. (I do not know any second book for the time being!)
