My answer to all your 3 questions is 'yes'. I am by nature attracted to differences given the multiracial and multicultural in my country. My knowledge in Russian culture is zero, so I believe this will be a good read to me. Thank you for sharing this with us.

I could definitely tell from your review you enjoyed reading the book. Your excitement screams out. I absolutely love learning about different cultures. This sounds like a book for me. Thanks for the interesting review.

Oh definitely! You should read this one then. I was so fascinated by all the different superstitions and everything that I read!

It's just something you don't even think about. I want to visit France, and I know some of the language. But, what about the dos and don'ts? Are there some things I should or shouldn't do? Thanks for commenting!

Although I would not read it because I am not planning on visiting Russia, it sounds like a fun book. Too bad it needs editing. Thanks for the review!

I don’t think I would have just picked this book up based on the title, but your review of it is great, and gives me an appreciation for the contents. I can think of several times I would have appreciated this kind of book as I encountered a different culture!

Thanks for another great review! I considered choosing this book for review recently, and your review makes me wish I did. :) I like books where you learn about another country's customs and culture. It's a shame about the grammatical and spelling errors. Errors are like having a huge stain on the front of your clothing - it's hard to see past the stain because it's so distracting.

This is fasinating. A book about a culture totally foreign, this is my kind of book.
