This book is packed full of relevant and up to date information for all those wishing to relocate to New Zealand.
The factual information contained in the book is clearly laid out and easy to understand, as a travel guide it is not particularly useful, although read in tandem with more tourist orientated information it is extremely helpful.
The area where this guide is a bit of a let down is in givng the reader a feel for what a New Zealand lifestyle would actually be like, it is, of course, useful to know what postal services, ferries, schools etc. are available but it would be nice to have more anecdotal evidence from other ex-pats currently living in NZ.
There is not enough guidance and information about which areas in New Zealand are best to consider for relocation purposes, although anyone wishing to make such a major step would be able to glean ideas from other sources.
Overall a good reference guide for those interested in moving to New Zealand, however, it only covers certain aspects. To get a full picture of life in New Zealand, in one volume, this is not the book to buy. It does though make an excellent source of information for those that are prepared to fully investigate all that New Zealand can offer, from a practical point of view, and when used in conjunction with other guide books makes a useful additional source of facts and figures.
