Book Review of International Business Language

My review:

“Although our global village speaks a uniform business language, still there are many cultures that practice dissimilar habits and customs.”

Yeah! The world has become a global village and the ease of doing business had enhanced a lot in the last decade. To do business with the people of the other part of the world, you have to learn the tricks of the trade and most essentially the culture of that country.

Tami has explained in detail about the IBL and the pros and cons of doing business with the people on the other part of the world.

The moment I read the book blurb, I was pretty confident about the fact that this is the kind of book that will both be interesting and informative at the same time, and the book lived up to its expectations.

The book describes in detail about the cultural shock one gets when moving to another country and how to represent yourself, abiding with the local customs and culture. And how a person feels once he comes back to his home country, the rejection he faces and how to overcome it.

Tami has explained how women have taken the top executive positions in the world in the last few decades and how the thought process of a woman differs from that of a man.

To give a clear idea about what happens in a man’s and woman’s life in the latter stages of life she had beautifully described the initial stages of growth of boys and girls. I found myself accepting what she wrote and was laughing at the truth she put light on boy’s growing stages.  Though not completely oblivious of girls growing stages, but the information that I received from the book about girls, gave an idea about the decisions they take and how small and little game playing lessons can impact a lot on a person’s life, at a later stage.

One of the best books of its kind and genre! A must read for anyone who is willing to learn the basics of International Business Language.
