Nathan Lustig's book is spot on and a great help for anyone visiting Chile for any reason! Our son is doing a 7 month study abroad program, and Nathan's experiences and recommendations have matched up perfectly with our son's experience. A must if you are going to Chile for any reason, but especially if you are there for a study abroad program. This book will help you maximize the value and quality of your own experience.

I'm considering moving to Chile and have been searching for whatever information I can find on the subject. I found this guide to be a great starting point for my research. It covers a great deal of general information and quite a few specifics if your interest is mainly the Santiago area. For 10 bucks I thought this was a pretty good investment in the start of my Chile education.

This book offers the insider's view into life in Santiago.

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.

I found this to be a solid and functional primer for North Americans considering a move to Chile (or, even, for someone simply curious about the country and its intricacies, like me).

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.

It all started with a dream trip to South America. Then a few clicks on amazon.com while I looked for road maps and travel info. Now I'm telling all my friends goodbye as I head to Chile and apply for citizenship.
This book has changed my life!

This extensive guide (217 pages long!) covers a lot of ground, from travel logistics and finding a place to live to banking, healthcare, culture, entertainment and much more. This book is a handy reference for visitors and anyone planning to settle in Chile. Its nearly impossible for a single guide to cover every possible corner of this vast country but this book is an excellent starting point. I highly recommend it.

Really interesting and from my point of view important book for people wishing know chilean environment from outside with goal to spent long time there. Although i know this country from my three years job really good, there are new information for me. Chapters I like concerning mentality, cultural differences and specific "way of chilean thinking "

I have been living in Chile for a year and a half and I wished I had read this book before. It is a very straight to the point, practical and useful guide for any expat in Chile. I couldn't believe that after living so many months here, I didin't know most of what I read in this book. It will save you lots of time/money and help you to get the most out of your time in Chile.
