Customer Book Reviews

Awful Material

By

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 ...

By

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

Culturally speaking

By

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!

By

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.

Five Stars

So far so good

Great textbook on intercultural competence

By

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.)
