Working with Norwegians Book Reviews
“For foreigners coming to Norway this is vital resource for understanding how to work with us. For the Norwegians this is the best book you can read at your cabin on a Friday morning along with your coffee and eggs.”
Jørn S. Haanæs
Director, Oslo Business Region
Sean gives unique and valuable insights into what it’s like to work with Norwegians. His first hand experience and humorous approach makes for an enjoyable read. I wish I had a resource like this when I started working in Norway!

Its a valuable book on the shelf as there are limited publications for the outsider to understand Norway and also for Norwegians to understand themselves through other’s eyes. As an ethnography its understood that it is not a data or statistic driven book as one reader asks for, that would be additional research that needs to be done, and should be.
First, let me say that I’ve found the writing style and the pace excellent, which makes it very easy to read. While you can get a great summary of the Norwegian values & traditions from it, some parts of the book are definitely relevant only if your job involves making business deals with Norwegians (sales person, investor, etc.). Definitely worth reading if you just arrived in Norway
