From getting a work permit to finding a WiFi hotspot... or even connecting with a fun sport or social group, @Home in Dubai... Getting Connected Online and on the Ground has the inside scoop on how to get it done. Knowing the drill is half the battle and author, Anne O'Connell, and other expats who weigh in with their advice and experiences, are happy to share a few 'how tos' with any and all newcomers. "Reading Anne O'Connell's @Home in Dubai is like sitting down with a friend over a cup of coffee and having all your questions answered." Zvezdana Rashkovich, author, Dubai Wives http://zvezdanarashkovich.webs.com "Having lived in Dubai for over 30 years and running my own training company for three, I thought I knew it all. @Home in Dubai offers a wonderfully chatty insight into the how's, why's and wherefore's of living in Dubai. And it's not just for the newbies either! There's fabulous advice for established entrepreneurs too." Lucy Hay, chief excellence officer, Expressions Arabia www.expressionsarabia.com "It's a much-needed hospitable host, who agrees to hold your hand through the raw and rough days of migrating to a new country."

Filled with case studies, personal anecdotes, practical advice, and tips on how to tap into social media for up-to-date information and insights, this guide will make every expat's transition go much, much smoother. Her section on children and teens is especially insightful and honest, and I highly recommend that any expat family heed her advice before making the move."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tips for settling in Dubai 5 Mar 2012
By Padders
Format:Paperback
In simple, easy steps, Anne O'Connell helps you navigate through what appear to be the many daunting tasks required to set up base in Dubai. Written in a chatty, informal style, the book helps to clarify the many frustrating or confusing rules and regulations that pertain to this city, whether it's renting a house or getting your work visa to hiring a maid or even getting your pet over to live with you. Especially handy is the "Five-Step Recap" which comes at the end of each chapter. This book is indispensable if you are contemplating a move to Dubai, or if you've recently moved to this emirate.

A formidable maze of customs, culture, etiquette and language, both spoken and unspoken, can make the transition a choppy experience.

@home in Dubai is exactly what one needs when relocating to a new city - it's up-to-date, aligned to today's needs, loaded with call-outs so you read only that which you need, is 'down and dirty' giving the reality of Dubai and hence is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! If this guide had been around when I ventured to Dubai, my road may have had less bumps along the way! @home in Dubai - as wholesome as its author!

4.0 out of 5 stars Do buy in Dubai 14 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Meet Dubai. Or in resident expert Anne O'Connell's words, a city which is "wall-to-wall hyperbole". A native Canadian who had previously relocated to Florida, O'Connell paints a vivid picture of her latest home. "Think New York meets Las Vegas on steroids" urges a writer whose imagination is often allowed to run riot. Captivating in its colourful prose, the book is also an essential handbook for those planning a new life in the UAE. O'Connell offers case studies aplenty from fellow expats she's met during her attempts to settle in Dubai. Well-researched, this is a book that will allow you to relax and save you all the effort of finding these nuggets of information yourself.Going Local in Gran Canaria: How to Turn a Holiday Destination into a Home
