    1. Peter travelled widely in the Middle East, including Yemen for linguistic research. This book covers several months of travelling to far away villages in North Yemen. He kept meticulous record of dialogues, scenery, behaviour of people, cultural challenges, etc. It is an easy read, but that does not mean it is not very informative. Highly recommended to get some insight into the lives of Yemeni people.


    2. Twele’s book takes you on an adventure to a place where few outsiders have traveled. Twele has traveled extensively in the Middle East and here he writes about his most memorable experience. As one who loves traveling off the beaten path, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Peter’s informal writing style made me feel I was on the journey with him. I had a hard time putting the book down.


    3. Rubbing Shoulders in Yemen is a gripping account of Peter Twele’s exciting journey into the rugged wilds of North Yemen. Peter’s personal and engaging writing style brings the Yemeni people and culture to life. The book has given me a much greater awareness of and appreciation for the people of this fascinating land.


    4. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Rubbing Shoulders in Yemen. I like how the book helps the average person get a feel for the beautiful people that the author has rubbed shoulders with. I think this portrait is a lot more balanced than what people might be able to get on TV.


    5. If you have ever wanted to know, or even just thought about, what it might be like to spend time in a Middle East country, were your thoughts ever directed to Yemen as the country of choice? Perhaps not, yet in 1987 that is where the author of “Rubbing Shoulders in Yemen”, Peter Twele found himself in a quest to conduct sociolinguistic research (the study of how the use of language affects society). Covering a period of just four months, Peter relates in fascinating detail his travels and hi [...]


    6. Not quite as exciting as the military Sci-Fi I read, but extremely well done. Having performed seven social linguistic surveys in PNG, I can relate to some of Peter's experiences and trials. Peter describes the experience very well. Having also lived amongst Muslims in Khartoum for 5 years I can believe Peter rubbed shoulders with some very nice, polite, and helpful folk. Where I lived for 5 years I could talk with women. Well, some women. Peter's excellent storytelling ability and his writing s [...]


    7. Interesting and exciting stories. The best one is about the boy who wondered how Peter could walkad it to find out why the boy was confused.
