5.0 out of 5 stars Finally someone understands....., June 28, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Successful Living Abroad, a Wife's Guide (Culture Shock! Practical Guides) (Paperback)
For those of us who are veterans of countless overseas moves, and perhaps particularly for first-time expats, what a relief it is to find this book, which so movingly and wittily defines the expatriate process. Yes, there are countless benefits to an international life, but there is also the pain and heartache of upheaval, rootlessness, missed loved ones and a career set indefinitely on hold. Robin Pascoe holds a mirror up to the expat soul, and shows it for what it is: delighted, resentful, joyful and miserable, and often all on the same day. The glue that holds every overseas assignment together is the accompanying spouse, and Ms. Pascoe's book is the best how-to guide a girl ever had. Don't leave home without it.....
