Mbele decided to try to help other people cope with what he had coped with

The first time Tanzanian professor Joseph Mbele experienced living with Americans was when he was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For about six years, he was able to observe American ways and perceive how they differed from African ways. In his book, he shares the challenges, joys, frustrations, and excitement of living in a different culture. He sought to help other people coping with the kind of experiences he had undergone.            

Readers will find this book interesting as it presents personal observations and comments from a person who has spent his time on both continents. It will remind people that our differences and uniqueness make the world rich and interesting. We should embrace these differences. For people planning to travel to Africa, as exchange students, for example, or for people dealing with Africans in the USA or anywhere else, this book is a must-have for reference and guidance.            

The book “Africans and Americans: Embracing Cultural Differences” will be proudly displayed at the 2017 Frankfurt Intl Book Fair which will take place this coming October 11, 2017. Save the date and don’t forget to grab a copy!
