By Boye Lafayette De Mente. NTC Publishing Group, Lincolnwood (Chicago), Illinois; 1998. Boye Lafayette De Mente's Dictionary of Korea's Business and Cultural Code Words is not a conventional dictionary. In fact, many of his definitions use a Korean word or phrase as an excuse to talk about cultural concepts and ideas. Many of the definitions are interesting and helpful, but some leave the reader wondering about De Mente's background. There are indications that his definitions are tinged with an outsider's point of view and even cultural and racial bias. National Textbook Company.

I checked this book out from the library and thought it was so good I had to buy it, as I have with De Mente's other three "code words" and "... have a word for it" books.

No, the book isn't perfect. Consider it a "first approximation", i.e. if you know nothing about Korean culture this book is a good place to start but don't expect to use it to research your doctoral dissertation on Korean culture. My Korean girlfriend disagrees with his description of a few things but overall the book made her laugh because of its accuracy and examples.
No, the book isn't for "bigots" (c.f. other person's comments). It always amazes me that many of the same people who complain that Americans don't understand other cultures whip out "bigot" and "racist" when a person tries. Every discussion of culture, by its very nature, is an approximation based on group behavior and stereotypes. You have to start somewhere.
The book is well written, entertaining, and educational. If you know nothing about Korea this is the place to start. The book assumes no prior knowledge of anything Korean. De Mente has 50 years of experience in Asia and it shows. Excellent book!

Not only has this book been poorly edited with numerous spelling mistakes in Korean and English it is very tedious to read as the author continually repeats himself. It would be wise to choose another text if you are interested in learning about Korean culture.

"Perverted Biggot's Guide for the Narrow-Minded" would have been a more apt title for this book. Inaccuracies abound, not just in the cultural "insights", but also the pronunciation for dozens of words are incorrectly romanized. Even one star is too high a rating.
