    One thought on “Culture Shock: India (Culture Shock! Guides)

    1. Heather

      Now, not having been to India, it's difficult to really review a travel guide.cially with recent stories about travel guide writers inventing "facts" about their destinations, getting details from questionable sources, etc. If I ever go, I'll come back and give a more informed review. First thing. Honest.

    2. Michael Bolls

      Before I came to live and work in Bangalore, I thought that this book would be a great primer to read before coming. One thing to keep in mind is this that India has greatly changed in the approx. 10 years that the book was published until now. Also, India is an extremely large place with over 1 billion people. To categorize all that diversity is a near impossible task. Of course there will be a lot of diversity in what you can find inside. The book goes into great detail about all the things yo [...]

      Obviously, I am interested in Indian culture, and this book offers a great view of what life is really like in "Mother India." I don't read a lot of travel books, but I borrowed this one from a friend, who got it from a fellow yoga teacher. Since I'll eventually have to study there for a month or more, I thought it would be good to go ahead and get acquainted!Kolanad is a witty writer, and she makes descriptions of mundane activities (going to the bathroom there, for example) funny and interesti [...]

      Very informative. I can't say it was the most entertaining read. It felt more like reading a textbook, but it served its purpose. The reading was light and I go what I needed out of it. Granted, some chapters were not applicable to my case (starting a business, buying a house) but what was written was interesting. Hopefully, this will be a helpful source, since I am less than a day away from a 3-week vacation there.

    5. Chris Lemig

      This book was written for people who are planning on living in India for an extended period of time. It covers everything from history and religion, to what to expect from Indian Bollywood cinema and the local cuisine. (Did you know that curry is unheard of in India and it is only served in restaurants catering to foreingers?)Lots of very useful and practical information. Check out this series for any country you might be travelling to (they have one on Germany).

    6. Scott

      I bought this to help me with the book I'm writing (which has characters of Indian origin), but it has proven fairly inadequate. I'd hate to have to visit India in order to write about it, but that is looking increasingly likely. Maybe I can just start watching Indian films--there are supposed to be thousands of them :)

    7. Andrea Elkins

      Very useful introduction to Indian culture and society. It's geared toward those who plan to live in the country, but was also helpful to someone who just engages with those of Indian culture and heritage for work or socially.

    8. Mrs. Musrum's Mum Keleher

      A sort of Cliff Notes to India, an interesting outline to a place I knew almost nothing about and know a little more now. I think this would be extremely helpful for anyone traveling or working in India.

    9. Lisa

      This book has some very interesting tid-bits of information that anyone traveling to India can benefit from knowing. However, a lot of the tips are pertinent only for people moving to India permanently (i.e. tips on where to send your kids to school.)

    10. katy

      This book is helpful for warning ahead of time of possible "shocks" to the traveler who is unaccustomed to very different cultures. I read a similar book before going to Morocco and was able to confront various difficulties with more understanding than if I had not read the book.

    11. Amy

      This is a travel book geared to those preparing for ex-pat life rather than short visits. It was well written, humorous, and very informative.

    12. Raj

      Helpful for those who are interested in culture of different countries, in this case India. Simple and easy to understand for everyone.

    13. Liz Korenak

      Excellent, the author is both informative and snarky making it an educational and entertaining read.

    14. Jenny Schwartz

      Well written with humour and clarity. Good intro to India (says someone who has never been to India!).

    15. Lara

      I thought this was a very nice overview of the customs and culture of India -- impressively well done for such a relatively short book and such a complex country!
