Pretty right on! 26 mars 2010
Par L. Lampach - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I purchased this book for a friend of mine who was traveling with me to Ghana for her first time. I am quite familiar with Ghanaian culture and mentality and I found the book to be pretty concise.

Love it! 15 décembre 2010

I read this book on my second trip to Ghana and couldn't believe that I had made so many faux pas the first trip. This book is an excellent way to educate yourself about the cultural practices in Ghana and the basic do's and don't's as a tourist. Don't leave home without it!

Not very useful 12 septembre 2011
Par xtn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
You can find all of the information you need about what to expect culture-wise in terms of customs and traditions online. When I received this book, I was able to read it in one short sitting and really, there was nothing new to be learned for my upcoming trip to Ghana. If you haven't looked up anything, heard anything or learned anything about Ghana prior to buying this book, it might be useful to you. Otherwise, you're better off spending your money buying the Bradt Travel Guide for Ghana (my "bible" during my month long trip to Ghana)

Fun and INformative! 30 décembre 2012
Par Manalive - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wish I'd read this before my first trip to Ghana. Netter late than never. I've been to Ghana 3 times now and still had much to learn about the customs, attitudes and manners or the culture. Highly recommended!
outdated, but that is a positive 17 septembre 2013
Par Desi Lopez Fafie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Ghana is developing fast. The fact that a relatively recent book already contains lots of outdated facts is an indication.
Some of the facilties, conditions and even security situations described need an update because of how things are rapidly evolving.
There is no mentioning of the construction boom, including many new hotels in and around Accra. Traffic jams are paralizing the city of Accra despite the completion of Tetekwachi. Crime is creeping in and therefore some of the statements in the book potentially can be misleading.
Lots of changes as well around telecommunications and internet. Some of the mentioned operators no longer exist, while subscriber growth is not followed up with sufficient network investments causing often poor lines, while internet is now improved a lot thanks to the arrival of fiber optic.
Inflation is now around 9.2 percent. So the rates of the new cedi to the dollar is now 2 cedis for a dollar as opposed to 1, as mentioned in the book.
Finding skilled labor is not as easy as the writer wants us to belief once you look for really skilled people.
The explanation about culture and customs gives a good reflection of life in Ghana but a point of caution not to generalize to the extend that the writer does at times.
