Everyone has experienced losing face. I can remember as a kid, being caught in a lie and
trying desperately to weasel my way out without looking stupid. There were times as an
adult, I would deny having problems at my job, too worried of loosing creditability. In Mark
Salzman’s book “Iron and Silk”, he shows the Chinese culture and how important it is to
keep face in front of a foreigner.

amazing how far people will go in order not to admit their wrong.
In Salzman’s book he shows Chinese culture and how it affected him. Any other country
would probably treat him the same. Try to look it’s best. Everyone wants to look good.
People have a hard time dealing with being wrong. “Iron and Silk” by Mark Salzman
showed those feeling from a different cultural standpoint.
