This book is highly insensitive, unimaginable and very conformative. If you are like me, and needed this text for a college course, only buy it used. Once you are done with the class, give it to someone who needs it for a class for free. It is that bad.
Had to buy it for a course I'm taking but ...

Had to buy it for a course I'm taking but don't agree with most of what the author is spouting about.

This book is long on "for instance" real world examples and short on a more academic approach. If my instructor wasn't lecturing on the chapters, I would be lost. Also, was unable to get this book used..its VERY expensive
Digital books rock!

The ease oh having the book in digital form on my iPad is the best! I no longer have a pile of books each quarter for school.

I read this for my class on culture as it relates to conflict and conflict resolution. I found the book interesting, easy to read and informative. (Some books are pretty dry, this is a graduate course.)

Some of this information can be dry since it is theories about communication. However, this book is littered with awesome examples of other cultural ways of thinking, common mishaps, and wonderful advice. This information forever changed my view, and now I feel somewhat an expert on intercultural communication. I even posted some of the short stories on Facebook.
Helped me opened my mind more

Very inspiring and it really made me learn a lot about different cultures. I gain a whole new RESPECT to everyone around the world with their traditions, culture, beliefs, etc. I really recommend this book to everyone even if you don't take a class that require this book or any classes at all. It is always great to learn something new. I really hope everyone will give this book a shot. :)
This is a must read to help bridge cultural misconceptions!

The Intercultural Competence (7th Edition) book provides insight into the many aspects relating to intercultural communication patterns such as beliefs, values, norms and social practices . The authors provide a holistic view into the characteristics of each culture, and scholarly views to support their findings. My advice to every reader is to approach the text with an open mind, and with a flexible perception to be able to understand that there are differences in every culture. Be mindful, that generalizing every view or perception will differ from peripheral views. Finally, in my opinion, this is an excellent book, and I highly recommend it.
