Book reactions:

Intercultural communication theory and practice
(40 cases) on differences + handling method

Release: 1994, Bohn Stafleu van Loghum, Houten

Some reactions:

  • Th ir. Quene, Chairman Social and Economic Council (SER),
    November 5, 1990, Nieuwspoort, The Hague

    It starts very realistic in the culture of the readers. It invites them out to see what affects them in a foreign culture, to finish with an assessment of the extent of bridging differences is desirable. The latter often takes the softer term "tolerance" to a mature level. I do not hesitate to call itimpressive.

  • E. Olyvhook Molenaar, trainer / instructor IBW

    The book provides guidelines how to deal with cultural differences; bet is directly applicable in practice and written in plain language, with practical examples. The layout is fine. More without a goodbook.

  • N.n., Teacher of Communication and Management,
    College Rotterdam e.o.

    Good. A book like this was missing so far, so communication literature is almost exclusively based on Western norms and culture. The cases provide an excellent complement to the theory!

  • Maurits Bruel, Business Messages, April 1991

    Finally there is another book that against the established order dares to go. Mr. Pinto has not tried in this work intercultural issues in the current organization theories to stuff, but want it to be reviewed theories of the organization... This book not only helps to understand other cultures, also helps the reader to become aware of his own culture: a real must!

  • C.H. Rijsterborgh, teacher Theory and
    Method / Relationships Science / Discussions Technology

    In this kind of book I waited. It offers many opportunities to work to use. Students who have understood, were also enthusiastic.

  • H.D. Prommersberger, College Windesheim, Zwolle

    Excellent approach to the methodiseren of cultural differences.

  • L. Kamp, College Sittard

    Pinto's book, the first of its kind, provides therefore a need.

  • Prof. dr H.B. Entzinger,
    Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR)

    Pinto knows from personal experience both Morocco and the Netherlands very well, and it is precisely such people who can promote intercultural dialogue. "All in all a useful intercultural communication textbook for higher education and specific courses

  • KLJK, August 1992

    About communication with people from another culture is a lot written. An important theoretical foundation laid by D. Pinto.

  • Ati Schermel, Arts and Education, 1990

    Pinto rightly suggests that better information on behavior and actions unknown and misunderstood the most important weapon in the fight against prejudice and stereotyping and thus racism. Without stereotypes, racism can not exist.

  • F.A.M. Kortmann, psychiatrist,
    CEO Psychiatric Hostpital Wolfheze in Wolffieze

    The book remains very informative. In particular, the examples make the Dutch aware of the limited validity of its own cultural norms and values, an absolute necessity for working with people from another culture.

  • Carriere, 1990

    Literally and figuratively: opens up your world.

  • Corporate Documentary, 1990

    Basic Principles of communication and manners in different cultures influence on the basis of many practices put out. This knowledge can be fear, uncertainty and eliminate prejudices which are still common practice in all dealings with foreigners or not, both the Netherlands and abroad.

  • Humanist, may/june 1991, nr. 2

    Fascinating book, it gives a method to bridge cultural differences.

  • M3, Year Edition 39, nr. 6

    An important contribution to get to know the deeper underlying differences between different cultures.

  • Paul Valens, Financial Economic Magazine (FEM), 1991

    Pinto takes on a creative, constructive and enjoyable way a large blind spot away from managers that the time of Willem Vroom and Anton Dreesmann not have seen.
