    A communications text book that teaches business men and women the importance of avoiding unnecessary offensive actions when dealing with other cultures. The greatest concept is that of ethnocentrism- considering your own culture to be superior to others. Great implications for missionaries and Pastor's alike.

    not a bad book, but it tries to be too flippant about some delicate topics.
