3IntroductionTing-Toomey has comprised a textbook that has well identified and explained theimportance of intercultural communication. The author makes a similar argument to what wehave discussed before, “As we enter the twenty-first century, direct contact with culturallydifferent people in our neighbor- hoods, communities, schools, and workplaces is an inescapablepart of life.”1The premise ofUnderstanding Intercultural Communicationfollows the definitionof intercultural communication. Which is, “The study of intercultural communication is about thestudy of communication that involves, at least in part, cultural group membership differences. Itis about acquiring the necessary knowledge and dynamic skills to manage such differencesappropriately and effectively.”2Similar to growing in EQ, Ting-Toomey suggests that effectivecommunication falls upon the leader to manage cultural differences well.I found much of the data used to be outdated. Although, I would not say the data wasmisleading, I believe it was helpful but simply irrelevant. It was accurate for the era that it wascollected and written. Much of the information that was used to build an argument or conveyevidence was collected in 2010 or 2011. The world has changed tremendously in the last tenyears, even in the last five. I believe an updated text would help convey the premise that Ting-Toomey wants to share.
