How Expats and Locals can work together for success in Myanmar

Andrew King, Mizzima Weekly, 14th Mar, 2019

“For anyone interested in learning about local customs and communication styles, and what locals find most baffling about foreigners, this book is worth reading. How locals and foreigners misinterpret each other’s “strange behaviours” is a topic many will find interesting, if amusing.”

“The book paves the way for future studies, which no doubt will soon follow – both from other aspiring authors, and through official research organizations.”
