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."

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.
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.
*** I wrote the review above for the first edition, but I have to say that the 2007 edition is even better. For one thing, there are more anecdotal passages, which always makes for more interesting reading, and I do think that expats learn best from others who've gone before them. Secondly, since security has become more of a concern since 9/11, it's good that this new edition addresses security concerns much more comprehensively. This is a must-buy for anyone living, working or about to move overseas, especially since support from employers, particularly in the private sector, varies so much from company to company. It's good to have a book that thinks of everything.
