Written particularly for the male businessman, this book provides very interesting insight into Mexican culture by demonstrating how the history and culture of Mexico can be understood through the language. Interesting comparisons of U.S., Mexican and Japanese cultures.
Practical historical and cultural advice for anyone who wants of needs to understand and navigate relations with Mexicans.
A lot of this I already knew but for someone not raised in the Mexican culture, this is very informative.
