Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The globalization of business has meant more people are expected to go overseas in order to advance within their companies. A failed assignment can cost the company money but it can also cost the employee his/her career. This book complements the training West Virginia University provides for executives as well as the preparation we try to provide for our students. Adams has experience both as an expatriate and as an advisor to expatriates.

He publishes "Global Assignment, Americans Abroad, The Adams Report," a newsletter covering issues of concern to expatriates.

Format: Paperback
I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering taking an assignment with a US-based country outside of the USA. I was assigned as an expatriate for 3 years in Germany. I wish I had read this boook. Maybe I could have minimized some of the culture shock especially for my family.
Chapters 1 and 2 provide excellent food for thought when deciding whether to accept the position. There are many pros and also many cons. Chapters 3 thru 11 provide outstanding recommendations for solutions to many of challenges of living in another culture.
Chapter 12 should be read before taking an overseas assignment as well as when nearing the end of assignment. Returning to the USA, especially professionally, is not easy. This chapter has some good advice on networking while assigned overseas.
Chapter 13 and 14 are also essential reading before accepting an assignment.
The investment in purchasing the book is sound. It will pay for itself many times over!
