In this age of frequent international travel, business people and visitors alike depend on acquiring new skills. Yet, feeling at ease in a new culture requires more than just skill building and knowing the customs and etiquette. At the heart of it is a clear understanding of one's own personality." "In this approach to understanding culture and succeeding in business abroad, Alan Cornes shows how our psychological make-up plays a fundamental part in encountering a new city, a new culture, a new environment. Culture from the Inside Out takes readers on a deeply personal journey to discover the first people we meet when stepping on foreign shores: ourselves." "Cornes shows us how to learn culture - our own and others - from the inside out. By exploring self-imposed barriers and our perception of ourselves, Cornes helps us examine our tolerance for ambiguity, empathy, flexibility and sensory acuity - all elements that affect our ability to get along in unfamiliar surroundings. He inspires us to overcome cultural anxiety and suggests positive approaches to the challenges of crossing cultures. Culture from the Inside Out provides any traveler, seasoned or beginner, with effective strategies for success."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Description : In Among Men Tobin Siebers grapples with what it means to be male. Juxtaposing a variety of genres, from memoir to meditation to miniature story, Among Men portrays the extremes of male identity and how the struggle to be a man involves confronting those extremes. The tone is personal, the subject matter timely and contemporary. In an age when it has become difficult to generalize about maleness, Siebers's challenge is to discover in his own life truths about the lives of men in general. ø Here are men consumed by the precision of work and the ferocity of drinking, cowards who dream of bravery, and heroes who lose their lives because they cannot be weak. Siebers confesses his own anger and lust and wonders how to retain his power as a man while becoming kinder and more worthy of love. Among Men is not a male manifesto. At turns moving, funny, poignant, and haunting, it is an insightful diary about things male, about how men think, about fathers, brothers, and sons, about love and lust, about talking man to man.
