A social psychology textbook that objectively covers not only Western society but also Asian. The book is easy to read and informative, structured and analytical. However, some aspects are easier understood contextually and experientially, especially the comparison of cultures and social differences.

This is an excellent textbook! The material presented is thought provoking and informative. Plus points I had an awesome professor that made this class (Psychological Anthropology) fantastic! :D

Students book, that reinforce Hofstede's theory. It's not original but is complete.

I agree with others that say this book is very dull. Definition after definition.
