I purchased this book to satisfy my own travel bug. Now I am buying it for every niece and nephew who graduates this May. I cannot think of a better gift to give the next generation than the gift of a global perspective. I enjoyed the author's charming stories about life abroad and admired her skill at organizing such a massive amount of information. How I wish that I had happened upon this reference in my younger days! It's never too late to experience the world, right?
This is an excellent book for everybody who has ever thought about living in an international lifestyle. It provides great tips, resources and everything else you need to know to make that happen. I specifically liked the self-assessments as well as the stories from people who have actually been living through the adventures of an international experience. Great book to give you ideas about what to do next and to overcome those hurdles that seem to be in your way when considering to move and travel abroad. Strongly recommended.
This book offers a nice mixture of data and ideas. It'll put you in touch with the right organisations for practical issues, but it'll also help you think about the whole life-changing experience of being far from home. It's full of personal touches, reassurance and encouragement. Makes me want to get out there again...
I strongly recommend this book for people who is planning to study or working abroad. I am in my home country now, but I was an expat for 6 years, and I am enjoying reading this book because It is helping me with the culture shock I am having being in my home country again. The book gives you addresses and places to go if you are planning to move to another country, also tips in order to find out your cultural profile. It is also a wonderful book for people who is already in a foreign country, sometimes you experience a lot of feelings like, happy, angry, isolated, sad, culture shock, and reading the book can help you to reduce the stress or the sad you are having at the moment. So, if your are planning to move, read The Global Citizen.
