Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the money This book was great. Concise, easy to carry, lightweight and well organized. You learn the history of the country in the beginning along with sections on doing business, manners, food, language, customs. It's a lot in a small paperback. If going there, you will need this book for the basic stuff.
