Although this book has great information about cross-cultural psychology, I felt like it really only skimmed the surface. As a college student that actually reads the assigned chapters, I felt like I really didn't get a whole lot out of this book except a bunch of background research. Not all of the chapters seem like they're put together in the most efficient way. Still a good textbook to use if one is needed for a class.
Very, very good book: complete, easy to understand and a great introduction to intercultural / cross-cultural psychology. I am very happy I got it.
Very useful.
What they do not tell you about the Kindle version is many of the charts and graphs are not in the electronic version due to "copyright" issues. I had to look up many of the charts and appendixes on line. Should tell you that up front particularly with a text book.
Purchased for my Cultural Psychology class. Good book for what it is.
Came on time!
I rented the kindle version for my college class and the version worked well, renting this book was an easy process as well.
As a text for a class, it is a good book with plenty of examples of terms and concepts.
