The history of failed business negotiations, political bustups and crumbling romances is strewn with toe-curlingly embarrassing gaffes that could easily have been avoided if only the guilty parties had had a smattering of cultural intelligence. Barry Tomalin, a world authority on inter-cultural communications, has put together a collection of anecdotes all of which illustrate some of these gaffes and their embarrassing results, with an explanation of what went wrong and the issue behind it. He says: “If twenty years of world travel does nothing else for you, you get to hear a lot of stories, some bar room gossip, some the unwritten law of anecdote, some hilarious, some sad and some just plain odd. These stories, and the experiences that lie behind them, are collected here. This book celebrates diversity. I’ve divided the anecdotes into fairly arbitrary sections and followed each with a light-hearted quiz. Answers (there are answers?) are at the back and for those of you seeking enlightenment on a particular country or region, there’s a country reference index, also at the back as well as a note on further reading. People on the whole are forgiving of foreigners’ mistakes but not when they show no awareness and no sensitivity. If you come away from this collection thinking not ‘Don’t travel!’ but ‘Be aware of what you do and say. Others might see it differently’, then we’ve done our work. Enjoy.”The book is funny, because embarrassing mistakes are funny. But it's got a serious and valuable message. The book is divided into thematic sections which reflect the key areas where gaffes tend to be made, and after each section there's a light-hearted quiz to check how your cultural antennae are growing in sensitivity [with answers at the back].
