Editorial Reviews

Review

"As an adult TCK, I have long wrestled with how I fit into this world. This book is the 'bible' for anyone who wants to understand the blessings and the curses of growing up multiculturally."
Wm. Paul Young, author of the #1 New York Times Best Seller The Shack

"I called the first edition of Third Culture Kids 'absolutely brilliant'. This revised edition continues to earn that acclaim. It's a powerhouse of a book through which readers growing up 'among worlds'--and their parents and the professionals responsible for their care and teaching--become able to take leadership of the challenges and opportunities presented by such a rick and complex childhood."
- Barbara F. Schaetti, Ph.D., Transition Dynamics, second generation dual national Adult TCK and lead author of Making a World of Difference

"Because Third Culture Kids have been exposed to other cultures in significant ways and have experienced multiple transitions while growing up, it's in their DNA to thrive within the pace and nature of globalization. This book is a must to understand the challenges TCKs face and the unique skills they can leverage as global leaders."
- Katrina Burris, Ph.D., CEO of MKB Conseil & Coaching and author of Global Nomadic Leaders: How to Identify, Attract, and Retain.

"In today's globalized and highly mobile world, the lessons to be learned from this new edition of Third Culture Kids transcend mere cultural enlightenment about a unique group of individuals growing up between worlds. This book is timelier than ever, and should be essential reading for parents anywhere in the world raising cross-cultural children."
Robin Pascoe, author of Raising Global Nomads; Parenting Abroad in an On-Demand World

Review

Growing up as a TCK has been a gift and has significantly shaped my life and work. As I interact with world leaders one day and with those living in refugee camps the next, I continually draw upon my experience of living among different cultures. I am delighted to see the lessons learned from the traditional TCK experience live on in this new edition of 'Third Culture Kids'.--Scott Gration, Maj. Gen. USAF (RET), President Obama's Special Envoy to Sudan
