Great practical look at international culture  Jun 27, 2007
I find that this book gives you a very practical approach to a complex subject. I would recommend this to anyone exploring international culture for either business or pleasure!
Practical Says It Best  Mar 24, 2006
I was required to purchase Storti's "Figuring Foreigners Out" for an anthropology class. The book gives relatively little anthropological information, when compared with other loftier textbooks. However, the quality of the information is still high.

Perhaps the most important selling point of Storti's book is its practicality. Storti truly teaches with short chapters and dozens of accompanying exercises. His exercises often prove his anthropological points as well or better than the informative section of each chapter. It's excellent for personal use or use in a cross-cultural effort. I highly recommend it for anyone doing short- or long-term global work.
Figuring out your culture attitude by answering questions  Oct 8, 2000
Quite good book. Storti takes the majors contributions of the seminal authors as Hofstede, Trompenaars, Hall and others and puts theirs theories in useful exercises (questionnaires, dialogues, quotes, etc.) Well organized, this book is target to a personal expatriation experience usage. The book focus heavily on the most tangibles cultural patterns, such as the communication issues, using a non- cultural or social expert vocabulary. In consequence some readers will feel perhaps a tendency to over simplify the more complex social reality. But surely this approach was assumed by Storti who aimed to create a expatriation preparation toll to be use mostly by managers. Having in mid this goal this book is quite a good concretization. Its also a good starter in the challenging cross culture filed.
