This book is both a family tale and a businessman’s guide to living and working among different cultures and gaining maximum value from the experience. The messages should be of benefit to anyone contemplating an international business career or a family facing an opportunity to go overseas. It emphasizes the importance of understanding and respecting the different cultures and in addition illustrates many funny experiences encountered while working and living abroad. The author also describes the fringe benefits he enjoyed including tea with the Shah of Iran, playing poker with Pierre Salinger on the Island of Rhodes, performing on stage with David Copperfield, and in Moscow swapping jokes with John Lindsey and giving a six pack of beer to Burt Lancaster. For anyone reading this book the bottom line is- if you get a chance to live and work abroad, “Go for it”!
