    “'This book is an important new resource in the toolbox of HR. As we give staff the opportunity of new career paths, new skills and at the same time allow spouses and dependents to fill their own roles within the process "information is power" and this book includes powerful information'”

    “It is a great read and is receiving rave reviews from the industry! Thriving Abroad is packed with useful advice and real-life stories from expats about their experiences during the relocation process... it could provide a great level of support for your expats of the future”

    “I love it! I could stop there, but as book reviews go, that is not very helpful. I will give you some context of why this book is perfect for anyone thinking of taking an international assignment, or anyone who employs staff working internationally, or anyone involved in global mobility provision, either in house or supplier side.”

    “This is a comprehensive reference tool for any family wanting to learn about international relocation - it covers all of the important areas needing to be considering when making such a life-changing decision, and encourages readers to become empowered but the up's and down's that moving abroad can bring, all written in a friendly and approachable tone that offers personal anecdotes in addition to case study. I am adding this book to my personal 'reference' library and highly recommend for families and service providers alike”
