Broad your mind! Sep 21, 2003
This book contains highly condensed stories based on 4-hour-interviews with students from all over the world. Read it, enjoy it and: please recommend it to teachers, to schools, to friends.
Not only you definitely will broaden your mind, but also you get very personal view of the world from the students' perspective.
There is a lot of prejudice about different cultures and/or nations. Become a bit more unprejudiced, tolerant and curious about the world with this unique collection of stories.
An absolutely fascinating read! Apr 30, 2003
Take a house full of students at the same school, from the most different fields of study -- but on top you get people from all corners of the world. With completely different backgrounds, religions, beliefs, experiences, desires -- and yet they are all wonderful humans, sharing details of their lives with us. And fascinating they are! From the girl crossing wild mountain borders in the Middle East to get her visa to the Asian violinist playing for African villagers, to the American who had never been in love before...
Admirable the author's skill to knit the essence of the surely intense interviews into very readable stories with a flow of their own.
Well worth your attention if you want to gain some insight into the ways of thinking of people from the rest of the world. Very different, you may think, and then again recognize some familiar traits in all of them. Just one big family of mankind? Here you get to know them...
