Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love these culture smart books! If ever you are even remotely 'thinking' of visiting another country, this book is a great starting point because it gives the historical background of the country, the relgion, the food, the different ethnic groups, local customs, things to be aware of etc. Really worth the money and the read.
