Richard Lewis provides a guide to working and communicating across cultures, and explains how your culture and language affect the ways in which you think and respond. This revised and expanded edition in paperback of Richard Lewis's book provides an ever more global and practical guide not just to understanding but also managing in different business cultures. New chapters on more than a dozen countries - from Iraq, Israel and Pakistan to Serbia, Columbia and Venezuela - vastly broaden the range.
This eloquent, easy-to-read book covers everything you need to consider to create a structure that will allow your international team to succeed...Lewis brings theory to life through a number of engaging case studies, as well as his own personal experience... Lewis has achieved a fine balance between theory often delivered in a light-hearted and easy to remember way and tactical every day application. Whether your international team is 10 people or 10,000 people, the clear narrative provides valuable insight... This fascinating subject is crucial to the success of global business.―People Management
Lewis provides urbane and knowledgeable guidance... Verdict: this book could mean the difference between winning and losing valuable orders abroad.―The Director

But the various aspects for analyzing each country are worth checking.
I am visiting Laos during the coming Tet holidays with my family while looking forward to seeing similarities to and differences from Vietnam in Laos from points of view of this book with my daughter in her 7th grade.

There is a level of generalisation within the book, but from experience, I could say that it is pretty accurate. Sometimes it is difficult for people to look in the mirror and see their own faults! I would suggest that for the sensible manager, this will provide valuable advice that they can use or not as the situation dictates. Certainly I feel that the book will help guide you in making your collaboration with other people more effective.
Although it is primarily for those doing business with those from other cultures, it is nevertheless interesting and informative, and will help in areas such as social care or health when working and dealing with people from cultures other than one's own.
That said I would still be wary of following blindly what has been said about the various behaviours.
