Format: Paperback
When you're moving overseas for the first time, what you want is advice, support, and perhaps more than anything else, the reassuring voice of reason. That's just what this comprehensive guidebook provides, which is what makes it such a boon to first-time and even experienced expatriates. The authors, both experienced expatriates themselves, offer refreshing reading on almost every imaginable topic pertaining to moving and living abroad: preparation, arrival, learning a foreign language, culture shock, moving children, moving pets, health care, and a special section for accompanying spouses. Full of down-to-earth advice spiced up with personal anecdotes, this book belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who's moving, living, or even considering a move abroad.

I have been sifting through a bewildering melange of books on the subject of relocation which meander without direction or substance. I have the long held hope of an international re-assignment. This is the first book that addresses the anamoly of not knowing the answers, as one does not know the correct questions to ask. It is a fun to read and you will be grateful for the information laced with humor and a fundamental zest for adventure. It is little wonder that Alma (Mrs. Colin) Powell wrote the forward. Buy it...NOW!!!!

Format: Paperback
Melissa Brayer Hess and Patricia Linderman's indispensable book covers all the practical aspects of adjusting to life in a foreign country. They pay particular attention to factors that can help or hinder an expatriot's adjustment. Every chapter includes short, personal sidebars recounting the experiences of those who've lived and worked abroad, an addition which brings the book to life with insightful, useful and often hilarious detail. We from getAbstract recommend this book to anyone who is considering relocation to another country. To be at home anywhere on the globe, supplement it with a couple of books about the specific country where you are going. Pay attention to the advice about planning ahead, then get your shots, tuck your passport in your pocket and head for the airport. (Don't forget to pack this book; you may need it for re-entry.)

Format: Paperback
So you got that dream job.... London, Tokyo, New Delhi, Pretoria? When you get there, you discover that you're "Not in Kansas any more." Trust me, I have done it five times, a move abroad is not like moving across the state or across the country. Suddenly you are far fom home, far from the people and things you know and love, and everything seems to work just a little bit differently. And if you think it is bad for you, just ask your spouse and kids....
Nevermind, Linderman and Hess do a great job of helping you with all the concerns that you might have in your move. This book sets forth the good, the bad, the ugly, and the funny in an international move. Even if you are lucky enough to have a corporate move-planner to assist you, this book is a gem to help you get ready psychologically for the move and what comes afterwards.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of essential advice for any American who is going to be spending several months or several years in another country. It even has a chapter on the challenges of adjusting to life back in the U.S.A. after you've been away a long time, something most people don't think about in advance. It seems very well organized to me, and I love the little boxes with personal examples of the authors' experiences - reading them, you know the authors write from first-hand knowlege of the challenges of life overseas. I highly recommend it to anyone contemplating such a move.
