This book opened up my eyes and gave me a whole new view on life. I always thoguht that I had a pretty opened perspective until I read this book. I put myself in the shoes of a person that isn't used to the customs that I am and saw what exactly they felt. How America isn't aware of how we make our native countries feel welcome. I would suggest this book to anybody that wants to be exposed to a new way of thiking. Jasmine
