Foreign to Familiar is a splendidly written, well-researched work on cultures. Anyone traveling abroad should not leave home without this valuable resource! I highly recommend it as required reading for cross-cultural workers. Sarah Laniers love and sensitivity for people of all nations will touch your heart. This book creates within us a greater appreciation for our extended families around the world and an increased desire to better serve them. --

The "Foreign" in the title of this most-helpful book once meant people and cultures "overseas." Today that has all changed. Sarah Lanier has captured the keys to understanding our own -- and others' -- ways of doing and saying things. I guarantee that if you follow the principles in this book that the boundaries of your worldview will expand, and you will begin to comprehend your own cultural ways in the process. This book is a quick read and a must read in today’s world where "cross-cultural" may simply mean "across the street" where you live.
Author of Re-Entry
Sarah Lanier is not only a perceptive author, but she has also lived and worked cross-culturally worldwide. I have observed Sarah professionally, as a teacher and consultant, on six continents. She has character, insight and experience that qualify her to share intercultural wisdom that will be life-changing for her readers.
