The book was good and informative. It used synthetic cultures as a way to learn how to be more open and diverse when dealing with people from other real-world cultures.

All in all, a good...but not great, introduction.

A wonderful little book for everyone really, not just those of us studying management, offering interesting insight into synthetic cultures and their 10 dimensions.
All interspersed with interesting examples in form of stories and exercises.

An interesting book that will need a re-read every once in a while.
