The complete idiot's guide to cultural etiqutte by Carol Turkington( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are so many ways to embarrass yourself in this world. It's easy enough in your own culture, where you know most of the rules, but when you visit a foreign country, social interactions are fraught with gaffe potential. You could shake hands when air kisses were expected, make eye contact in a culture that deems it aggressive and boorish, or bring a hostess a gift of funeral flowers. Even smiles can be misinterpreted; what may seem like a friendly, open gesture to you can signal anger, embarrassment, or disrespect in other cultures. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Cultural Etiquette is a lifesaver for all travelers, especially those attempting business trips on foreign turf. Even before the Guide gets into the particulars of Israel, India, Singapore, and Japan, its "Overview of International Etiquette" offers enough pointers, reminders, and general cultural sagacity to make it worth the purchase, introducing conventions whose norms differ from culture to culture (thereby providing fertile fields for insults and misunderstandings) such as gestures, table manners, dress, gifts, punctuality, and interpersonal space. Geared toward the businessperson, Turkington's guide suggests you dress conservatively, behave with respect, and refrain from telling jokes in languages you barely know. It also points out that it's always worthwhile learning your host country's history, culture, and language before you get there, and recommends obtaining business cards printed in English on one side and the language of the country you're visiting on the reverse. Most of the book is dedicated to specific cultural phenomena in 26 regions, covering Canada to Latin America, Belgium to Russia, and Taiwan to Saudi Arabia. In Portugal, for instance, dress is formal, small talk doesn't include politics or government, business cards are vital, chrysanthemums are associated with death, and dinner is generally eaten around 8 p.m., whereas in Hungary, punctuality is prized, halo can be used for both hello and goodbye, and you should never chew gum in public."--Amazon.ca book desc

The encyclopedia of children's health and wellness by Carol Turkington( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the fact that the risk of childhood disease is lower now than it has been in the past, childhood health care needs remain complex. This is mainly because as society and technology change rapidly, children are routinely exposed to new potential threats. For instance, in the last few years the National Institutes of Health and the Surgeon General have been warning of an epidemic of childhood obesity in the United States, resulting from lack of exercise and poor nutrition. Children are not small adults, and their bodies react differently to toxins, invading viruses, and medications. Their swiftly changing metabolisms and immature immune systems require specialized attention and conscientious preventive measures such as vaccination. The Encyclopedia of Children's Health and Wellness is a two-volume set offering more than 600 entries covering all the key aspects of childhood healthfrom infancy to age 18. Explaining diseases, conditions, general health, safety issues, learning, growth and development, medications, treatments, and much more, this encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference to the health issues facing children today. Completing this invaluable reference is a series of appendixes providing resources, organizations specializing in major childhood diseases, hotlines, useful books, a glossary, a guide to choosing a pediatrician, and much more
