Best Relocation Book

I’ve read several books on relocation, & this is the best one I’ve found so far. The reader is outstanding, talks like he’s having a conversation with you—the one oddity I noticed is how he pronounces “bilingual” but it’s not a major detractor.

I like the author’s blunt honesty about the pros & cons of various countries & regions, many of which I honestly would have never in a million years considered, before reading this book.

Definitely recommended, in combination with other sources of course, on any place you’re considering moving to. I plan to follow this author’s blog & website, to keep abreast of the most recent info. Looking forward to any new editions of this book he might write too!

A must read for any potential expat.

A fantastic start to your expat journey starts with this book.
As someone who already started traveling, but has not settled on a specific location yet, this book has opened my eyes to more possible homes than O imagined.
And plus, who doesn't want to live a good life for less?

Must Read for Future Expats

Fascinating and entertaining book discussing the wealth of offshore living options available to anyone with that special sense of adventure that might cause them to pursue such a living arrangement. My favorite chapters are the country by country discussions. Even for those countries I have no interest in living, his insights on both the benefits and drawbacks of each location provide interesting and informative background.
Highly recommended!
