This book is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone! The author writes on a personal level like she is talking to you and it is also written from a emotional level so it is easy to understand. This book gets you excited about all the possibilities and the author explains any fears you may have and how you can get over them and overall she gets the word across to never give up! She also gives e-mail adresses from other people who have experience travel. This is a great book, everyone can benefit from this.

The Global Citizen is an excellent book for anyone thinking of doing anything abroad! It covers a wide range of topics, from studying to volunteering abroad. The author provides practical information on how to identify your goal, approach it and then directs the reader on where to find more information on each individual topic. This book is very stimulating and most certainly motivating! A great buy!

The "Global Citizen" is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to travel or work abroad. Most importantly for me, this book has a wealth of information on careers abroad that I had not thought of before. Most career guides are so narrow in scope that I rarely find much use in them because they are so "8-5" in nature.
The other cool thing about this book is that it's full of websites with info. on every aspect of living, working, or volunteering abroad.
I love the personal stories in the section "A Global Citizen's Perspective" because, as a traveler, you can really connect to the experience of the author and other people who have done what you want to do.
If you are looking for a a life changing adventure, then travel abroad. If you want to stay abroad, then get this book!!

The Global Citizen provides valuable information not only to someone starting a world adventure but also to the experienced traveler. As I am passionate for living the international life I will keep this book as my personal guide and I will certainly take advantage of all the useful addresses in there. Great resource, Elizabeth!

The Global Citizen is a really great resource for people who want to learn about the on-line resources available to work, study, travel, and just find an experience that will suit each person abroad. Kruempelmann does a wonderful job of dividing the book up in sections to suit people with all different interests, backgrounds and approaches. She applies not only her broad base of knowledge but personal connections as well to give commentary on their enriching experiences abroad. A great resource for students at any level and really for anyone looking for an experience abroad!!!

This book is fantastic! I have given it to several people as gifts, and plan to use it as a resource in the classes I teach - I'm trying to instill a desire to travel in my students!

This book is a must-read for anyone with an international background and who is aiming to work or study overseas. Elizabeth's book is full of great advice, insightful observations -- and most importantly, genuine inspiration -- for those who are just getting started on a path towards an international career. I only wish that a resource like this had been available 10 years ago, when I was getting started on this path as a recent college grad!
