Thank you, Nicholas Brealey Publishing, for the advance reading copy.

Broadly devided into ten short crisp chapters, this book focuses on intercultural environment in order to bridge cultural gaps and help us perform better if we feel it is a setback for us.

For someone like me who can totally relate to this situation as I work with people from different cultural backgrounds, I can feel and understand what the author is talking about.

I find the book to be really thorough and impressive right from the very beginning as it leads the reader with what the book is about giving clear aims and target with special features.

The reader will find the book totally practical and easy to follow/understand given the perfect setting for each chapter starting with great suitable quotes, asking key questions and apt exercises.

I appreciate the presentation in such a convenient manner to be accessible for all age groups. Also, I find the different scenarios described as examples with models the best parts of the book.

For someone who's looking forward to build connections and expand their experiences, this book is a must have.

I am planning to keep a physical copy of this book and recommend it to someone in need as well.
