This is a great read for frequent and armchair travellers alike: pack it in your hand luggage on your next trip and you'll be in for a treat. Ranging from how to greet people, what never to say and how to conduct a business lunch, this little gem is an entertaining and practical guide to avoiding foreign faux-pas. - Best of its kind

Working Abroad
Jonathan Reuvid
Kogan Page

An excellent guide to every practicality involved in becoming an expatriate, from finding a job to taking your car abroad. If you're looking for intelligent advice, this book - now in its 29th edition - is the one to plump for. It's not country-specific but provides a thorough exploration of every conceivable issue involved with upping sticks and making a home abroad. - Best of its kind

The Guardian Guide to Working Abroad
Nick Clayton
A&C Black

This book gets down to the nitty-gritty of moving abroad. It's thoughtfully laid out, with sections on tax, property, insurance, banking and working remotely. Because it covers Europe, North America, the Middle East, Australasia, South Africa, Japan and China, detailed information is often lacking, but Clayton provides you with enough resources to find out for yourself. A good starting point. - Could be useful.
