While cyberspace and concorde jets have made the world so small that East and West meet regularly, when it comes to understanding one another, the two worlds are as far apart as ever.

A must read for everyone who works in an East-meets-West setting. I first read this little book right before moving to Thailand 15 years ago. I'm so glad I did. Now whenever I meet someone about to go to Asia, this is the first book that I recommend.

Lane paints in admittedly broad but useful strokes, the differences between Eastern and Western ideas and practice. In later chapters he explores these differences in different fields of thought from education to decision making to religion.
Very good and concise summary of the differences in thinking between the Western mind and the Eastern mind. It was very helpful to me for relating to my friends from Eastern cultures. The book could go into much more depth on each subject.
