I ve read Storti s Art of Coming Home and was excited to read his tips for preparing to travel cross culturally His use of travel literature not only complements his perspectives, but also adds to the reader s interest in traveling, reflecting on his or her own culture, and continuing study by reading in this subject further. I didn t like this book, not necessarily because it was a bad book but because I expected something different This was like a textbook, with examples of expats behavior in the workplace, in social circles, the habits they often refuse to let go of, how they are perceived by locals, etc I expected and wanted to read about internal conflicts that we expats have with respect to what is home , where our loyalties lie, how we often feel torn between two homelands between the country where we grew up and where our character formed and the country that gave us a better or perhaps just different future in our adult life , how we mix cultures and which aspects of our original culture it hurts to lose, and so on I would say that this book provided descriptions whereas I was looking for analyses. Sehr nettes grunds tzliches Buch f r Leute, die einen l ngeren Auslandsaufenthalt planen, sei dies als Touristen oder um in der Fremde zu leben und Geld zu verdienen Hat berhaupt keine kulturspezifische Hinweise und versucht stattdessen den Leser daran zu erinnern, dass er im Ausland als Mensch wirklich von Null beginnt und sich dementsprechend verhalten sollte Die Kommentare ber R ckkher und die Reaktion der Daheimgebliebenen werden Leuten, die lange Reisen machen vermutlich ins Herz treffen. A helpful but short guide on intercultural communication Some helpful tips, but the last 1 4 of the book seemed to be filled with appendices, quotes, and references I was hoping for meat on these bones. A very informative guide that will help you interpret different cross cultural situations in your host country that could escalate into altercations A way of looking at certain situations where the expat experiences something that is unique to the host culture in social situations, the office, everyday life, etc I really liked the examples this book gave. Excellent book for study abroad participants and host families alike.
