Unfortunately most North Americans have not paid much attention to or taken time to learn about our neighbors to the South. The United States and the world cannot afford to ignore a continent that is called home by one-fifth of the world's population and is an incredibly rich source of natural resources. This book is a guide to communicating with South Americans in business and social situations. Designed to be simple to read and use, with easily accessible sections organized by country and behavior. Topics covered include Meeting and Greeting, Names and Titles, Corporate Culture, and Especially for Women. Put Your Best Foot Forward-South America is equally helpful for leisure travelers, students, teachers, people in the travel and hospitality industry, and hosts who entertain international guests.
