Publisher's Summary

Jet lag, boardrooms, and high-pressure deals.

That's what international business brings to mind.

But R.F. Hemphill makes us think again.

Sharing a series of letters sent to his father during his decade of traveling the world building a billion-dollar company, Hemphill illuminates the always practical, sometimes poignant, and often funny ways we must connect if business is to be done.

"If they served you camel hooves for dinner, and you didn't know it until you asked, what part of the camel did you have for breakfast?"

"In Islamabad hotels, you must sign a form certifying that you are an infidel and will assuredly go to hell, in order to get room service to bring you a drink. Is this form binding if you die outside of Pakistan?"
