This is Korea
Though there are many books that introduce Korea to foreigners, not many people really know Korea and even less, the Korean people. In many ways, Korea is overshadowed by its two neighbors in size by China in economy by Japan and therefore relatively unknown. So, This is Korea looks at Korea through the perspective of a foreigner and gives the reader a true understanding of the Korean psyche with various topics, from basic facts about Korea to sections detailing Korean culture and its traditions. Also, It explains Korea in a reader-friendly way, as if your Korean friend were explaining to you what Korea is really like, warts and all! It would be an ideal gift for both the traveler and the working expat in Korea. A captivating resource for anybody who wants to know about the TRUE Korea.
Having lived in Korea for over 20 years now, I have come to love this country… Though there are many books that introduce Korea to foreigners, this book looks at Korea from the perspective of the foreigner and explains why things are different in Korea

I’ve lived in many Asian coutnries, but each country is different and this book gives the reader a true understanding of the Korean psyche. I would recommend it to both the casual visitor as well as an expat posted to this country.

It would have helped enormously if I had had this book when I first came to this country, but even now it is not too late!
-Anna Fifield, Financial Times Correspondent
I think that Korea is the best kept secret of Asia, but the secret is about to be revealed in this book. The two authors of this book reveal Korea to the rest of the world in a way that it has never been portrayed before.
