Fear of immigrants, ethnic differences, culture wars, political polarization - these are forces that divide us. OtherWise steers us toward common ground in a world of difference.

OtherWise moves beyond merely “tolerating difference” to help you assess your underlying beliefs and undergo the changes in perspective and attitude that are required for managing and leading today. Informed by dozens of interviews and packed with illuminating data and powerful examples, this original book explains what America’s changing demography means for business, and how to shake off the fear of the unknown and truly connect across cultures, borders, and perspectives.

Advance Praise for OtherWise:

OtherWise is a must-read. The steps it advances are key to the improvement of our society, and all should heed its advice.”

Robert L. Dilenschneider, Founder and Principal, The Dilenschneider Group

OtherWise is a superbly written handbook on how to make it in a changing and increasingly divisive world—must reading for anyone seeking success.”

Harold Burson, Founding Chairman, Burson-Marsteller

“Copies of OtherWise should occupy prominent space in the nation’s major colleges and corporate marketing departments, and be required reading for anyone interested in the future of advertising and the global economy.”

Byron Lewis, Founder and CEO, UniWorld Group

“Dick Martin makes a profound argument that the opposite of intolerance is not tolerance, it is hospitality. OtherWise lives up to its title, and imparts wisdom on how to be hospitable to others. His book challenges beliefs and feelings to provide wisdom that might take one a lifetime to achieve, if at all. I will make sure my friends and colleagues all read this book.”

David Kenny, Chairman and CEO, The Weather Channel Companies
