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." Suchitra Chaudhary, senior feature writer, Friday Magazine, Gulf News www.gulfnews.com "Anne has written the guide that I wish I had had when I moved to Dubai. 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." Rebecca Grappo, founder, RNG International Educational Consultants
