I can verify that all of the information is up to date and accurate.
The book is well organized with short chapters. The information is concise and the author has refrained from using "filler" material.
The book is intended to be a starting off point for further research. For example, there is a chapter on Chilean culture but you could probably read an entire book if you wanted to understand all of the intricacies of the culture and language.
Undoubtedly, this book can help a foreigner save time or money when navigating some of the tricky parts of life in Chile such as opening a bank account or finding a rental apartment. The author even explains how to rent a car and drive to Argentina for a weekend trip.
There is not a lot of information online about Chile. Many businesses still do not have websites meaning that a Google search will not help you find the relevant information. Subsequently, this book can be an invaluable resource for tourists and expats alike.
The book contains precise, relevant information for the potential expat, and lots of it. The text covers all bases, from the practical, legal, and bureaucratic, to the cultural and sociological, with even some geographic and historical rundowns thrown in the mix. Also, the information is to-the-point and well organized, and the eBook as a whole follows a logical, structured format. The only negatives I found: a surprising number of grammatical issues and typos, plus some profanity that struck me as out of place in such a book. But, of course, these do little to detract from the book, only hampering its readability somewhat.
Thanks to the author, the subjects, and anyone else involved in 'Chile: The Expat's Guide.' I have benefited from reading it.
This book has changed my life!
