Multicultural manners : essential rules of etiquette for the 21st century - JH Libraries
What I liked, and what I find rare among intercultural communication books, is that it talked about communicating inter-culturally, in America. That is, other books discuss what to do if you travel abroad. It had some great statistics as how many Americans now have multicultural backgrounds, and the benefits of reaching out to others who may be culturally different.
It also discussed I checked this book out from the library to prepare for a conference presentation on multicultural communication. It also discussed situations whereby those who did not have "mainstream-sounding" names or appearances, were mistaken for "foreigners. However, if one reads this as a "crash course," one will probably get mixed up as to what culture follows what tradition. Nevertheless, it is a must read for everyone! View all 3 comments. It was entertaining and enlightening, and would be worth reading again for the cultural tidbits.
I was refreshed on the meaning of customs from my own background. A very well written guide to views and manners in most societies.

I would have liked more of the book to be dedicated to the anecdotes with analysis, and less to the section listing various countries, which I found long, somewhat dull, and hard to remember much from - although I did discover some interesting things in that section.

Each chapter is focused on a certain area e. Oddly the miscellaneous section is found before a few last chapters.
Multicultural Manners: Essential Rules of Etiquette for the 21st Century
Each chapter has short vignettes of what not to do when interacting with people from different backgrounds. These vignettes seem to be anecdotal, possibly hypothetical. The last section of the book organizes the info This book is a good general guide to cultural differences in etiquette, especially pertaining to multiculturalism in the United States.
The last section of the book organizes the information by country. I wish this reference section had some more of the key do's and don'ts from the rest of the book, though. Reading all of these tidbits quickly causes confusion and I could not keep these tips straight after being saturated with them. As far as I can recall, play it safe by not giving yellow flowers to anyone, and don't touch people of a gender that is not your own.
Jul 15, Oscar Romero rated it it was amazing. The best book to really learn about all cultures I was quite surprised to find out many "things" I was not aware of--about my natal country.
Nevertheless, an excellent source of useful information if we want to do business or simply get along with people from other cultures. Strongly recommend this book to readers of all ages and of course, all cultures. May 22, Ian rated it really liked it.
This book did nothing to squelch my deep desire to BE Rick Steves. This was a fast and wonderful read about intercultural mingling, travel, and communication. I'd love to read something like this which is not geared to U. Americans, but rather toward people researching travel to the United States. Feb 25, Emily rated it really liked it. Not that I had any confrontations, but so that I could appreciate the cultures better.
It might be a book I'm always reading, since I 'm just reading bits and pieces that interest me at the moment. Jan 13, apwebb83 rated it it was amazing. The information is so useful when trying to understand and not offend people in my diverse community. Who would have thought that a potluck could be offensive? I will use the topics in the book to start discussions among diverse groups and the ensuing conversation is always entertaining, enlightening and ultimately bridge building.
Jul 05, Michelle rated it liked it. I'd give it 3. Parts of it seemed redundant and a few examples were a little dated.
