Can a single book prepare you to cope with cultural differences around the world? Figuring Foreigners Out: A Practical Guide can with its self-training approach! Craig Storti, author of The Art of Crossing Cultures and The Art of Coming Home, uses his knowledge and creativity to make this an exceptional resource. Universal and easily applied to everyday situations, this book is for anyone who wants to understand those who are culturally different. Educators, trainers and individuals will profit from this user-friendly workbook, as readers can work through their exercises on their own or in a group.
Figuring Foreigners Out is one of the few books that individuals can work through and, without the aid of a structured training program, effectively prepare for dealing with cultural differences. It is high-priority reading for anyone working with foreign cultures overseas (expatriates, diplomats, study abroad students, volunteers, missionaries or military personnal) or at home (at work, school or in the community).
