Format: Paperback
This is a great little book full of useful tips on how to approach the Finns and their way of life. I have `Finnish` friends and this book helped me not to embrasses myself. It covers the Finns at home in the workplace and if you are invited to a Finn house. A good read.

Sorry, I don't like saying negative things, but I was very disappointed with this book. It purported to tell the reader of Finnish culture and social customs. It does not. It's just a guide American business users. Sorry it was poorly written, often repeating itself within a couple of pages. It needed a good editing.

While the world is getting smaller there are some country specific customs that if ignored could make a visitor seem impolite. This book provides an insight into the Finnish customs with an interesting overview of some of the history of the country. This relatively small amount of background history allowed me to feel much more confident to join in conversation.
Well worth reading before a first trip to Finland

As someone visiting Finland for the first and probably only time I found this a useful and interesting little book. By the time we landed in Helsinki I felt I I had a good feel for the country and a basic understanding of the culture. During my stay I was able to relate back to what I had read and the knowledge gained enhanced my stay. Just wish there was a map and basic Finnish words included.
