If you are looking for a broad overview of your options for living, working, retiring, or just getting residency abroad, this book is for you.

I took out as many books as I could find on this and similar topics and this is the best one I found. The information is interestingly laid out, the book is easy to navigate, and I really liked the stories of expats included throughout the book.

Don't expect this book to give you every detail about immigration to an individual country, but do expect it to tell you what kind of visas are offered and where to get started.

Loved it!

This is a great reference book if you are looking to get out. It seems to hit on the most popular concerns for people (currency, language, freedoms, crime, etc) and even tells about socioeconomic concerns (abortion, gun laws, homosexual behaviors, etc). I do wish there was more info on other nations, but the top 60 countries that are covered seem to be good choices. It does NOT tell you how to get out or things to pack or the process of leaving, etc. It DOES, however, help you decide where to go and why. I enjoy the little stories given by people who live in the countries listed.
Overall, a refreshing book that gives one reason to research leaving.

I was really shocked with how comprehensive this book is. Tons of great information, some of the most valuable coming from those who have moved and their true experiences. There are also tons of great references, links to web sites, organizations. I learned a lot and this will be a great reference tool for a long time, I am so glad I purchased it! It gave me hope and insight that while the United States is a wonderful country, there are also many other interesting places to live. Excellent work to the author!

Pretty pedestrian. If you want to know about how to approach and solve the big issues (banking, visas, health insurance, and housing), you'll be disappointed..

I bought this book expecting a sparse series of pages with a heavy Liberal bias, full of rants about the Bush family, the Republican Party, and the superiority of Socialism.

That's not what I got. Not at all.

This is a wonderfully comprehensive guide to moving abroad, temporarily, for a job (and how to find one, abroad), or permanently, perhaps for retirement. It covers a wide range of countries, focusing on 61 very varied countries, worldwide.

If you have a specific reason for moving, or might run into political issues you didn't even think to look into, this book is vital reading. At the front of the book -- before the country-by-country descriptions -- you'll find everything from drug laws to gay rights to religion, and from healthcare to crime to taxes... each with lists of the best (and worst) countries, based on your preferences. (And, those best-and-worst lists come from outside sources, with clear references. Many of them are US government resources. So, this book isn't as biased as I'd expected, reading others' reviews of it.)

With how-to advice, web resources, and lots & lots of stories by people living in those countries right now... this book contains over 450 pages of essential reading for anyone who plans to spend time abroad.

It's more of an encyclopedia than anything you'll read, one page at a time, starting at the first page and concluding at the last. I read the sections that most interested me, and learned a lot I hadn't expected to. I'm still pretty sure we know which country we want to retire in. However, I'm reading other parts of this book, in case we're missing some vital information or a better choice for our interests and our retirement budget.

Some countries aren't as well represented as others.

The pro's of this book are that it covers a lot of the basics and provides an essential checklist of what you need to do. The argument that this data can be found online cannot be denied, but the purpose of a book like this is to consolodate that data. Sure, it can be found online, but if you don't know where to look or what all you need to look for, this book provides that checklist, so to speak.
My issue with the book though is that some of the information about countries appears to be based on old stereotypes, incorrect information or just flat out lack of research. For example, the book list top 10 terrorist hot spots for 2010. Not only is this list dated and incorrect, it actually list Russia in the top 10. Russia is considered one of the lowest risk countries in the world for terrorism and has never been a terror hotspot. I'm starting to think the author thinks Russia is still under communist rule and that citizens are required to report to Lenin labor camps. That Russian children are eating by the infestation of vodka drinking bears. Meanwhile Syria has been a terror hot spot for more than a decade and is not on this list. Libya, another one that has been a hot spot for several decades, not on the list. Another, Thailand, not a terrorist hot spot, yet on this books list of terror hot spots. Just some really bad information here. This type of gross misinformation makes me wonder how accurate the other info is.
