Interesting book on the nature of culture and how it can be observed and studied. I especially liked the anecdotal examples and the views into different cultures. Being a non-US citizen, I recognized myself in some of the examples and I saw things that intrigued me the study of others. I really liked the division of cultural and how we can recognize and go from one level to another -the formal, informal and technical, and how these things can relate in the micro scale of the individual and how different personality types and learning types relate to the overall culture pattern. The tables and diagrams were very useful and clarifying, and the text was interesting and flowed pretty easily. Very good introductory read.
