Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Go To Ghana Without Reading This Book I read this book on my second trip to Ghana and couldn't believe that I had made so many faux pas the first trip. This book is an excellent way to educate yourself about the cultural practices in Ghana and the basic do's and don't's as a tourist. Don't leave home without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The quick need to know guide My wife and I purchased this book because we are researching countries for international adoption. We also purchased the Culture Smart version of South Africa. These Culture Smart books are brilliant. It was a quick history and need to know for each country. They are very quick reads and the content contained within them will definitely help when traveling to the country you are reading about. I am sure there is a lot more information that can be found on this country however the information contained within this book is the most vital and will definitely make your trip a lot easier. I would not hesitate to buy another one of these books for any other country I plan on traveling to.
