Culture Smart helped me to interact with people and avoid causing any embarrassment. An insightful book which provides a lot of valuable information and some really good advice. I certainly found this book to be a very good source of information during my stay. I also read M. J. Poynter’s “Greetings from Ghana” which, despite being sexually charged with numerous erotic encounters, does capture a lot of the character and social norms of people in living Accra.
