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.

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.
