4.0 out of 5 stars Expat Working in Nigeria June 22 2014
By Ema M Billings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From what I have read from the book, which is three fourths it has been very helpful especially as an expat living in Nigeria. I'm a peacebuilder used to preparing and learning about a culture before I work in a new region so this from what I have read so far this book was extremely helpful. I'm only rating a four instead of a five solely because I have not finished reading it. Once I do, I will re-rate the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for any working professional. May 7 2012
By TeshneeChetty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For a book written as a guide, it was an easy read, not too long, not too short, which makes it perfect for someone who is travelling and looking for something quick and interesting to read. I particularly enjoyed the stories from the field. I thought this gave the book a personal feel in addition to it being a source of information.

Although I am in the finance field and do not currently travel for work purposes, I found many tips in this book to be rather useful in respect of my own field and have begun to apply them within my working environment. The author tackles everything that is vital to know, from the preparation required before embarking, to settling into a new and possibly challenging environment with different cultures and traditions, working with difficult people, establishing lasting professional relationships, safety tips and ensuring one's personal wellbeing.

This book would be a wonderful and most useful tool for anyone looking to work overseas, in particular, third world countries. With globalisation ever advancing, the advice and tips given in the book are gems for any working professional, regardless of the field of work.

I would highly recommend it!
