The second part of the book introduces the reader to the influence of culture on international market entries.

The book is very well written and easy to understand. The structure is clear and makes it easy to find what you need. A lot of examples make the book very interesting. Quickly it becomes clear that the author is an expert in the field, he answers pretty much every question about Franchising, Licensing, FDIs, the Greenfield Strategy, M&As, Exporting, etc. The cultural- and pitfalls-part of the book gives this book a "competitive advantage" over other books in this area. I really enjoyed reading it and I am sure that it will help other professionals in the field as well. Dr. H. Maler --Dr. H. Maler
