HASH(0xa302bf30) out of 5 stars Great intro to New Zealand April 19 2008
By S. Briggs - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just recently finished reading this little book, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't know much about NZ. It is indeed a "quick guide" but it has a surprising amount of information packed into a few pages. My only "complaint" is that the author doesn't mention any negatives--I'm willing to believe it's a wonderful place, but there must be SOMETHING less than fabulous about it. All in all, it was worth the purchase.

Finished in a day. Short and sweet, I recommend the add on book Moon Living Abroad in New Zealand by
Michelle Waitzman. It added a little more detail, if you plan on moving there. I plan on going to New Zealand for my internship and this book helped a lot.

Good information about the culture, geography, climate, political situation, currency, humor, customs.

I could have done without the Gay/lesbian guide to living there, but I guess some need that
HASH(0xa4749168) out of 5 stars Concise and useful Dec 17 2013

I am preparing for an extended stay in NZ and appreciated Butler's overview of the history and customs of NZ. I found her book straightforward and her insight on Kiwi psychology and interacting with natives particularly useful. Hopefully I will now be better able to interact with NZ locals without embarrassing myself of inadvertently offending them!

HASH(0xa60080cc) out of 5 stars New Zealand Culture April 28 2009
By Wayne Bokum - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Designed to be a handy pocket guide, this small book provides general, though not particularily detailed information for anyone who is traveling or emigrating to New Zealand. If you are looking for a brief overview of NZ customs and culture, you should find this book helpful.
