Culture Wise America (print) by Travellers often underestimate the depth of cultural isolation they can face abroad, particularly in a country with a different language. America is seen by many people as an ‘easy’ option, with its English language, movie and TV ‘familiarity’, long history of immigration and millions of annual visitors. However, sooner or later, most newcomers find certain aspects of American life alien – holidays, patriotism and tipping – and some come unstuck as a result. Culture Wise America will help you understand America and its people, and adapt to the American way of life. Most importantly, it will enable you to quickly feel at home.
