Présentation de l'éditeur

India is in transition. Since the publication of Culture Smart’s first guide to India in 2003, it has been transformed from a developing, third-world country into the world’s fastest growing economy. Today, a huge, confident, emerging middle class is exporting technology, brains, and enterprise to the rest of the world. At the same time, young Indians educated abroad are returning home to take advantage of the new opportunities, bringing Western expectations and lifestyles with them. The impact of all this wealth-creation, modernity, and individualism on the timeless values and ancient caste structures of India is beginning to be felt well beyond the great cities, adding yet another facet to the giant kaleidoscope of Indian society.
This completely new and up-to-date volume by American author Becky Stephens is unrivalled. It highlights the many subtle and not so subtle changes that are taking place in Indian society, describes and explains those areas of life where traditional attitudes and practices continue to prevail, and offers original insights, practical tips, and vital human information to guide you through the pitfalls and delights of this complex, vibrant, and increasingly important country.

Too much like Wikipedia 14 juin 2011
Par Emil Plagborg-M�ller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had hoped for a book with a lot of cultural insights. Instead most of the book is written in "Wikipedia style". It mainly consists of facts. For instance it describes the religions and what the religions believe in. I could have found this on Wikipedia! I was hoping for a book describing the behavior of Indians. I did not get that.

India- Culture Smart 9 janvier 2011
Par Spider Monkey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have read quite a few Culture Smart books over the years and whilst they do tend to be rather formulaic, they also generally offer a fascinating insight into the country it chooses to focus on.

This book about India takes a brief look at the history of the country, before looking at values, customs, makings friends, family life, leisure time, travel, health and other travel tips, before finishing on chapters about business and communication. The chapters are broken up into bite sized chunks which makes this easy to read and dip in and out of. It also had various photos throughout, although rather frustratingly these aren't labelled so you know what you are looking at! This offers plenty of advice to dodge the most obvious social faux pas and should help you get the most out of your time in the country and in your relationships with its citizens.

This is pocket sized which makes it easy to carry and it is of a short enough length that makes it perfect to read through on your outward bound flight to India. I have always enjoyed the Culture Smart series for the insight into some amazing places around the world and this guide to India is no exception. Well worth a look in your India holiday/business trip preparations.

Over all, a decent peek into India. 8 décembre 2013
Par Maureen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'd lived in India a few years before running across this book. I was so excited when I first started reading it. Not for myself, but for the idea that this would be an easy read to give some family members who were headed out to visit. It's easy to read and gives a simple (sometimes lacking) overview on things. India is a very complex country and attempting to fit that much diversity into a book of this size would be impossible. That said, I think it would be good to continually remind the reader that not all experiences are the same. I also felt that Chapter 7 came across as very negative, almost as if it were someone else writing...doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the writings.

Excellent cultural guidelines 1 novembre 2013
Par Elizabeth Reno - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book provided valuable cultural insight and guidelines for our time in India. A colleague and I were visiting Indian NGO's across the country to learn about their work. I had read other travel guides that describe the tourist sites, but this was just what we needed to provide the basics of how to navigate our itinerary as well as communicate respectfully with those we were visiting.

Excellent guide to the wonderful Indian People 15 juillet 2013
Par Reader in Palo Alto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this for a friend who was going to India for a month, traveling all over. He has a very delicate constitution, so I wanted him to be aware of the various kinds of foods (and different kinds of curries) so that he would be protected. Well, with this book, he chose wisely, ate wonderful curries everywhere, and came back five pounds heavier than when he left! He is a traditional Catholic priest (with the full cassock, and all that) and I was afraid that he might run into religious oppostion---nothing could have been further from the truth--EVERYWHERE he went, people were WONDERFUL, and very KIND! IMHO, Rick Steves should revise his "friendliness" list of the friendliest people on earth (although his tours don't go to India, yet) because the Indian people seem to be EVEN MORE friendly than (his pick) the Irish!
