The cost to businesses of ill-prepared employees moving overseas can be measured in the millions of dollars - lost man hours, wasted training and high overhead. For the expatriate-to-be, everything you need is here: advice and sound, practical knowledge on preparing, moving, getting settled in, and adjusting to the new culture. The authors' optimism and common sense come from their multiple international moves and more than 30 years experience living and working overseas. The authors provide essential tools to make each expatiate an expert at surviving in his or her new culture. This book is a must for anyone who is planning to live and work overseas - single, married, employee or spouse, with or without children; relocation specialists who assist clients in making that transition and human resource personnel responsible for international assignments.


"The authors draw on their vast global experience to give suggestions for dealing with the transition challenges that can so easily overwhelm both the new and the veteran traveller. The information in this book lets the reader follow one of the authors' most fundamental adjustment suggestions: 'Talk to people in a position to know.' These authors know." Terri L Williams, Vice President, Association of American Foreign Service Worldwide,

5つ星のうち 3.0 Not Very Helpful for Setting it up Yourself 2005/8/19
投稿者 Meredith - (
This book offers some great advice for moving when you have a company or government moving you and a network to tap into who has done your similar move previously. If you are going it alone, the advice is very rudimentary. For example, it offers little advice on how to pack things and ship them except to contact those who have done it previously for advice. Well duh!? It also focuses on language barriers, etc. but I am moving to an Engligh-speaking country, so that did not apply. Advice such as - have your organization set you up with another American who can get your apartment, buy your first groceries, etc. - is a nice idea IF that type of person is available. We're the first Americans in our organization doing this, so we can't ask previous Americans in our situation to help us out. Some of the psyhological issues it addresses, however, are very helpful! There is a BIG focus on moving a FAMILY (big chapter on PETS too!). This book was not as helpful to a single girl moving!!!

5つ星のうち 5.0 Stresses Family Matters 2005/5/22
投稿者 Andrew Crowley - (
I am a new expat on my first assignment with my spouse and 2 children. I wish I had this book before I left the United States. It is full of extremely good information.

The authors stress the importance of handling family issues. They really hit the nail on the head in describing the feelings and emotions that can arise on the part of family members involved in an international relocation. There are numerous sections of the book that address the special issues of spouses and children, and provide excellent advice on how to deal with them.

Read in conjunction with The New American Expat: Thriving and Surviving Overseas in the Post/9-11 World, and a couple of the top expat websites, like [...] and [...] these sources provide all the necessary information to make your overseas experience enjoyable and successful.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Packed with Knowledge! 2003/1/22
投稿者 Rolf Dobelli - (
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.)

5つ星のうち 5.0 Moving Abroad.... That's a horse of a different color. 2002/6/2
投稿者 Victoria - (
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.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Great Knowledge for Temporary situations 2006/2/6
投稿者 T. Diggs - (
I got the book because I am contemplating moving overseas, permanently. This book is wonderful for all those out there that are moving to a different country because of work, and will eventually be returning home. Though this book helped me a lot, It didn't cover a lot of things I needed to know, such as:

How to really pack and ship things overseas. They gave a general overview, but no real concrete steps or information that would help me on shipping.

It also didn't cover things that people would need if they are indeed staying overseas permanently, like immigration laws, steps on how to become a citizen of whatever country you are going to, or work/study permits. They assume that most of their readers will have the aid of an organization behind them. I attribute this to the writers not being able to be country-specific on such details.

They also added things which I didn't need such as language barriers, ( I am moving to an english-speaking country), or things to do with Pets & Children ( I have neither one or the other). I, as a single person moving overseas permanently without any organizational help whatsoever, will need more supplemental reading to go along with this book. But let me say again that this book is packed with information about the experience of moving abroad and anyone contemplating working/moving overseas should at least give this a read-through.
