about

Culture Smart! Portugal will help you to navigate this multifaceted society. It gives insights into different aspects of life, from sleepy seaside towns to modern, trendy cities, so that you can experience firsthand how this society, which protects family and privacy so fiercely, is eager and proud to show visitors everything the country has to offer. Portugal is a small country that has had a huge cultural and political impact on the modern world. Portugal is now on the radar of world travelers and multinational corporations alike, and this has made its people more receptive to change and more modern in their outlook. This adventurous spirit is evident in the urban and cultural renewal that has swept the country, in harmonious contrast with its historic and traditional backdrop. Portuguese idiosyncrasies can be both confusing and enchanting. While rising to the challenges of the times, they have managed to maintain their values intact, preserving the history and traditions that give their country its flavor.
Sandy Guedes de Queiroz is a translator, writer, editor, and relocation consultant. A Portuguese native who spent most of her childhood abroad and has lived in several cities in North America and Portugal, Sandy has first-hand knowledge of the joys and pitfalls of encountering a new place and culture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i loved this copy from Chapters! Had to add yet another book to my growing collection of these Culture Smart books. They are small enough that you can get through it and the price is good. Definitely worth the money 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.
