The "Foreign" in the title of this most-helpful book once meant people and cultures "overseas." Today that has all changed. Sarah Lanier has captured the keys to understanding our own -- and others' -- ways of doing and saying things. I guarantee that if you follow the principles in this book that the boundaries of your worldview will expand, and you will begin to comprehend your own cultural ways in the process. This book is a quick read and a must read in today's world where "cross-cultural" may simply mean "across the street" where you live. --
