This is an amusing light read. It helps you start to think like a Cultural Anthropologist. It is good for people to realize that there are more ways to do things than just the way their own country does it. If we can learn about other cultures, we can make our world a better place. Yes, that quote is cheesy but, it is also true. If you want to learn a little bit and have a chuckle while doing so, this is a good book!

A true must-have for international travelers or anyone venturing into a culture other than their own - the ultimate guide to leaving your "element" and environment - without forgoing your dignity. It is chock full of anecdotal, true stories of global business travelers and those on holiday. I literally laughed-out loud while reading this book. Passengers in my cabin scoffed at me in wonder, so I buried my face in the spine so the title could purposely be seen. Suffice to say, I may have boosted book sales from curiosity alone. I recommend this title for gifts, your library, or just to remain in your carry-on bag as it serves a great purpose for those perennially on the road. GET this book - available in softcover too!

I purchased both "Do's and Taboos of humor around the world" and "Essential Do's and Taboos" by Axtell. Both books are good and if you have an interest, buy one or the other, but don't buy both. I expected some of the same info in each book but not entire sections copied word for word. I enjoyed the book but just regret buying both as that was a waste.

If anyone is ever looking to understand other cultures when they travel, this book is a must. It places real life situations funny and embarrassing as examples of what you can expect. It's so informational in regards to humor, misunderstandings, and travel abroad.

I read Mr. Axtell's book on use of humor in the international business environment with great interest. I also had quite a few good laughs doing that. I must confess, however, that I was a little disappointed by the fact that such a great deal of the anecdotes presented in this book have been circulating on the internet for a long time already.
This book is written for the American business people, and Mr. Axtell makes it clear. However, from the point-of-view of a "non-American" reader, there is a drawback attached: some of the anecdotes do not open up unless English--American English to be precise--is the reader's native language. He is left wondering what the point of the story was. Fortunately there are not many such instances.
This is not to say that you should not read this book if you are not an American. On the contrary, Mr. Axtell reveals, perhaps unintentionally, a useful insight into the mind of the average American commercial traveler who might be sitting next to you on an airplane, or on the opposite side of the negotiating table. Also, most of the book's content is sound advice applicable to any cross-cultural business situations.

This book is told, in a loose, style.The book repeats itself, from chapter,to chapter. and it`s more ho hum thanfunny. However, there are some lol,in this book, but they're a chore, to find. Axtell; fails to follow his own advice. "68% of your audience will quit listening, if you talk more than 20 minutes." This book is useful, for first time globe trotters, The lol chapter on cruising, is worth the price of the book.this book would've been better, if it include samples of lol jokes, from around the world.
