If you like to know differences in cultures, this book is fun to read. You won't read it cover to cover, but just about every country you can think of has 3 to 5 pages of information. Find out what is "normal" in one culture vs. offensive in another culture. For example, in many countries, bringing a bottle of wine as a gift is a great idea, but in other countries it means that you don't trust your host's judgment in wine. The audience for this book are business people, but I think anyone would find it interesting.
