Description: Your friend2s mother-in-law is visiting from Korea. When greeting her, do you bow, shake hands, or kiss her on both cheeks? The meeting with his international customers is going well for the corporate president-until he gives the thumbs-up sign. Why? You welcome your new neighbors with a bouquet of your prizewinning daffodils. Yet your beautiful yellow blossoms are met with looks of shock and horror. Why? Discover the answers in this incisive, award-winning guide to etiquette, now thoroughly revised to reflect today2s truly multicultural society. Both highly informative and entertaining, Multicultural Manners gives you the understanding you need, the perfect words to say, and the correct behavior to use in a wide range of cross-cultural situations.
