4.0 étoiles sur 5 No help for the woman business traveler, otherwise very good. 8 juillet 2007

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I gave this four stars instead of five since the section on business custom does not describe how business women should dress and behave in Singapore. There's the passing remark that women should only initiate handshakes when one is introduced to a (presumably male) colleague; otherwise, there is nothing about how to dress or behave when working in Singapore. Can we wear pants? or must we wear skirts?
The chapter about dining etiquette and entertaining was fascinating. I'll keep this around for my upcoming trip but only wish that it was a bit more helpful on the distaff side.

I didn't find this book particularly useful - the information was pretty straightforward and very general. Wouldn't recommend - you can get all this cultural info online with a bit of research.

With this goes the habit of changing details and plans frequently. Westerners who focus on the arrangement rather than the relationship will often find this frustrating. &quote;

When disagreeing with someone, try to nudge them gently in the other direction. Never think that you are being too subtle, for a Singaporean will always get the hint &quote;
