The book is well laid out and is good at listing basic information about New Zealand. However, it is let down in that it is just basic information rather than comments and advice. For example there are 90 pages on immigration which just repeats information freely available on the New Zealand Immigration web site. I have just gone through the immigration process and what you really need is advice and guidance. Living and Working in New Zealand by Mark Hempshell is much more informative and well written but is a little bit out of date now. I think possibly the best purchase is Working and Living in New Zealand by Georgina Palffy. This book is u to date and gives some useful feedback in living in New Zealand.
