Synopsis

American Cultural Baggage How to Recognise and Deal with it by Stan Nussbaum

This book offers an outside-in look at American cultural peculiarities that helps Americans, see ourselves as others see us -and vice versa. American Cultural Baggage lets both Americans and the rest of the world in on things most Americans don't know, about themselves and their values and how those things are perceived by others. Americans will learn of the impression they make, while others will gain insight into the curious tribal values of Americans.
