The subject undertaken by the Authors is important both from a theoretical and practical point of view (...). The publication constitutes an interesting cognitive study on the importance of cultural differences in business communication.
From the review by Renata Oczkowska
The publication focuses on the cognitively interesting and current issues related to the sources, nature and consequences of the occurrence of cultural differences. It is worth mentioning in particular the author’s tactful combination of two research perspectives including cultural differences and communication processes.
The beneficiaries of the books will certainly be academics and students. That is due to the scientific quality of the argument, multiplicity of sources and scientific language. On the other hand, it contains a number of exemplifications, practical illustrations and graphic forms of presentation of various thoughts (...) there is nothing to prevent the book from hitting the desks of managers and specialists in various general and specific management problems.
From the review by Piotr Jedynak
The book takes into account the multiplicity of research approaches and perspectives. It is based on the review of empirical research, methodological and theoretical aspects, including from the field of sociology, anthropology, psychology and intercultural linguistic analyses, important for business activities conducted on culturally-different markets. The authors, assuming that communication is culture and culture is communication, focused on the synthesis of the issues explaining the intricacies and complexities of intercultural communication in business.
In the chapters of the book the following topics have been covered: the essence of communication and intercultural competencies among business representatives as a consequence of globalization, conditions of communication for culturally diverse markets, analysis of verbal and nonverbal communication in the intercultural space in order to ultimately refer to the specific area, that is, the building of the advertising message directed to customers on culturally different markets.
