Exploring Culture brings Geert Hofstede's five dimensions of national culture to life. Gert Jan Hofstede and his co-authors Paul Pedersen and Geert Hofstede introduce synthetic cultures, the ten "pure" cultural types derived from the extremes of the five dimensions. The result is a playful book of practice that is firmly rooted in theory.

Part light, part serious, but always thought-provoking, this unique book approaches training through the three-part process of building awareness, knowledge, and skills. It leads the reader through the first two components with more than 75 activities, dialogues, stories, and incidents. The Synthetic Culture Laboratory and two full simulations fulfill the skill-building component.

Exploring Culture is suitable for students, trainers, coaches and educators. It can be used for individual study or as a text, and it serves as an excellent partner to Geert Hofstede's popular Cultures and Organizations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
What a gold mine of information! What a wealth of material! Exploring Culture is a book that gives the interculturalist real substance and real tools in the same volume. I congratulate the authors for having constructed a masterpiece in intercultural training. * David Crookall, Ph.D., Universite de Nice Sophia Antipolis, Editor, Simulation and Gaming *
Full of both practical approaches to intercultural learning and gems of insight into how the Hofstede dimensions work out in the real world, [Exploring Culture] will likely become a dog-eared resident of every intercultural practitioner's bookshelf. * John W. Bing, ITAP International *
Exploring Culture is an impressive addition to...intercultural training, expertly written by three leaders in the field. Must reading for anyone concerned about the effectiveness of people working and living in other cultures. * Nancy J. Adler, Ph.D., McGill University, Montreal, Canada *
