    One thought on “The Expert Expat: Your Guide to Successful Relocation Abroad”

    1. This is a really helpful primer for preparing for a move abroad and settling in there with checklists, soul searching questions, and realistic advice. It covers many different situations, including moving with kids or pets (not relevant for us). I found the chapter on trailing spouses, with a section specially on trailing husbands, incredibly useful. I do wish that it had some more practical advise for those of us traveling to places where an expatriate group will not be readily available and su [...]

    2. This book was geared more toward temporary relocation abroad with the understanding you would return after a few months or couple of years(government officials, large organizations/corporations). Each chapter addressed rather important points and offered interesting anecdotes, but did not go in to enough detail for those independently organizing their own relocation, or those planning a permanent move.

    3. Packed with a lot of knowledge about relocation and what to expect and not expect from moving to a foreign country. Knowing how to deal with children, teens, pets, and babies. Making new friends that will genuinely help you and not because they have an ulterior motive. If you're moving to a foreign country and not used to relocation, pick up this book. It will give some insight. I didn't read the entire book, I just chose several chapters I was most interested in.

    4. There are not many books out there on this topic, and this is one of the most comprehensive guides I've found. Not every section will apply to everyone, but I found some good ideas in here and will re-visit in the future when I have some problem areas. I do recommend this to anyone moving abroad as a handy reference guide.

    5. Absolutely stellar - hands down THE book to read on expatriation (and some repatriation info, too!) regardless on whether you are company supported from a big multinational corporation, or someone who's found a job teaching ESL at a cram school in Taiwan.
