Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Navigating the treacherous waters of international customs, beliefs, and morals has never been easy. Most of us spring a leak at some point in our travels-whether from our own ethocentrism and cultural blindness or from bad luck and a nimble pickpocket.

Here at last is a sound and savvy guide to polishing your behavior in 45 countries around the world. Each offers some unusual and often unexpected etiquette challenges. With concise tips on meeting and greeting, conversing, dining, dressing, and more, Behave Yourself arms readers with the basic, no-nonsense rules that separate ignorant tourists from welcomed guests.

You will learn:

How to eat without offending; how to dress to impress

When to be on time, when to be late-and when to make your exit

Who will welcome getting to know you-and who will find familiarity uncomfortable

Where and when a gesture you might normally take to mean "Yes" will actually mean "no"

What everyday activities can actually land you in jail-from jaywalking to chewing gum to napping in your car

This book is an essential aid to those traveling abroad for business or pleasure. In addition to being a fun read, Behave Yourself will help you keep your foot out of your mouth, your wallet in your pocket-and your travel-weary backside out of the local lockup!

Book News Annotation:

For 45 countries the author offers brief information about customs of meeting and greeting, conversation, eating and drinking, dress, gifts and tips, and public behavior. Each country's entry includes a color photo or two and the flag. There is no index or bibliography.
