Reviews - What do customers think about Living and Working in America, Sixth Edition: A Survival Handbook (Living & Working in America)?
Outdated and some errors. A let down Feb 9, 2008
I have many of Hampshires books, My job takes me around the world to a new location every year. However this is outdated but does not go into detail with Visa's or Green cards. The home buying section is OK but only for Florida. The other 49 States have different laws and this it give the wrong advice.
I have found essentials in this book Aug 13, 2007
I have found all essentials in this book I needed, but rated it by 4 stars because of two things: 1. lack of some more detailed information; 2. design of this book. Text arranged so flat, that sometimes it gets hard to read.
I would recommend this book to anybody, who plans to move to US and has no information where to start from: from arriving, arranging visas to renting or buyng property.
Great resource... Jan 12, 2007
This is a great handbook for those wanting to head to the USA to live & work. It is very detailed and seems to cover everything you would need to know.
