We are all in his debt." - From the Foreword by Allan E. Goodman, President & CEO, Institute of International Education "A well-written, highly informative guide to campus life abroad.... The advice is valuable and Lipson's direct and informal style very effective." - Philip G. Altbach, Director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College"

The book is really good and well structurized. I contains not only general information about american academic cuture but also many everyday things: greetings in different parts of the country, spending free time, buying a car and so on.
But you have to know. This book is predominately about US education. Canadain universities are discribed only in comparison with US ones.
I've been in the international education field for eight years, and I'm currently making a transition from ESL teacher to ISSS administrative role. This book lays out simply and clearly many of the challenges that international students face, so it has helped me to better understand potential problems I will face in counseling students.
