This book gives some interesting insights into how society shapes us into the people we are. The 8 cultural conflicts were:

1. Eastern Hemisphere vs. Western Hemisphere
2. Men vs. Women
3. White vs. Non-White
4. Rich vs. Poor
5. Christian vs. Non-Christian
6. Midwest vs. Coast (U.S. Geography)
7. Money Motivation vs. Social Motivation
8. North Hemisphere vs. South Hemisphere

I especially found the Rich vs Poor and the U.S. Geography chapters interesting, but pretty much all of the chapters were interesting. The last chapter seemed a bit weak. The book would have probably benefited by restructuring the order they discussed things in. I would highly recommend this for anyone to read! Especially if you are working with people who don't come from the same background as you do. It might just make things easier for everyone involved if people were more conscious of the differences in people's values and ways of thinking. ( )
