Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Roman has written extensively on relocating and spoken on both radio and TV. Having moved 16 times, she has built her knowledge from her own experiences, both domestic and international. This title is packed so full of practical information that it should make one's move to anywhere less stressful. In fact, much of the information is helpful in just making the transition to different stages of one's life. Roman discusses career interruption, selling and buying a home, buying vs. renting, mortgages, insurance, medical care, care for the elderly, schools, as well as information pertaining more specifically to moving, i.e., organizing the move, moving options, arrival in the new city, and getting established. Her advice is practical, down-to-earth, organized, and doable. A solid guide for public libraries.Julia Stump, Voorheesville P.L., N.Y.
