This is the book I have been looking for. It contains the detailed “how to do it” of becoming an expat. Every expat has to solve the problems of banking, mail, driver’s license, health insurance, etc. I have lived abroad before, but an employer took care of the logistics.. This time I am on my own. This book is well written: clear, concise, and practical. I also like how the author addresses the cultural issues. You may think you will be invincible and not go into culture shock. You will. (I speak from experience.). This book will hep you be prepared.
