"Lewis provides urbane and knowledgeable guidance... Verdict: this book could mean the difference between winning and losing valuable orders abroad." The Director; "Lewis is a crosscultural expert who has now presented his wisdom in a highly readable book." Evening Standard"


In this thoroughly updated and expanded third edition of the ground-breaking book When Cultures Collide: Leading Across Cultures, Richard Lewis includes every major region of the world and more than sixty countries! Capturing the rising influence of culture and the seismic changes throughout many regions of the world, cross-cultural expert and international businessman Richard Lewis has significantly broadened the scope of his seminal work on global business and intercultural communication. Within each country-specific chapter, Lewis provides invaluable insight into the beliefs, values, behaviors, mannerisms and prejudices of each culture, lending helpful advice on topics to discuss and those to avoid when communicating, guides to interpreting unique terminology and modes of behavior that will contribute to successful communication and lasting relationships. Lewis advises on overarching guidelines for proper overseas manners, whether in a restaurant, at the home of a colleague or in the boardroom. Using dozens of scientific, yet highly accessible diagrams and building on his Linear-active, Multi-active and Reactive (LMR) culture type model, Lewis gives managers and leaders practical strategies to embrace differences and work successfully across an increasingly diverse business culture.


The successful managers for the next century will be the culturally sensitive ones. You can gain competitive advantage from having strategies to deal with the cultural differences you will encounter in any international business setting. Richard Lewis provides a guide to working and communicating across cultures, and explains how your culture and language affect the ways in which you think and respond. This revised and expanded edition in paperback of Richard Lewis's book provides an ever more global and practical guide not just to understanding but also managing in different business cultures. From India to Ireland, Belgium to Brazil, Mexico to Malaysia, the Czech Republic to Chile.


Be prepared for global interaction.
I have been explaining how nationality differences impact on international business relations for over 15 years. During this time, I have come to realise that existing models for cultural analysis fail to capture the true picture of cultural diversity. I therefore invented my national categorisation model detailing Linear-active, Multi-active and Reactive cultures. When Cultures Collide is based on this model and I believe is the first book which really provides the internationally-minded reader with an opportunity to understand – in clear and simple terms – how to interact successfully with other cultures.
