4.0 out of 5 stars An informative guide to a move 'across the pond', 2 Nov. 2003
This guide provides the reader with all the basics that they need to consider before moving to live and work in the US or Canada. The immigration process, accomodation and employment prospects are covered in detail, together with good summaries of the education, health and taxation systems. A noteable highlight is the inclusion of several personal case histories of Brits who have made the move in the past.
The coverage on Canada is a little light, but a good background read none the less.
I would recommend this book as a first port of call for anyone considering moving to the US or Canada. Most importantly, the authors give a frank and honest account of each country's strict immigration policies that will allow the reader to assess their chances of success.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definative travel companion!, 12 April 2003
Being an undeniable fan of "The Rough Guide" Series, the guide to Sweden packs in the ususal mix of what to do, where to stay and all the other facts and commentary that we have all grown to love.
Having spent 6 weeks travelling in central and southern Sweden, The Rough Guide did not fail to disappoint! Being a country that most people will have little to no real knowledge of, the guide is an essential companion.
I was pleased by the level of detail that the guide contained, not just on the big three cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo. To experience the best that Sweden has to offer, you need to get out into the countryside, and the guide covers all the essentials using its typically honest and frank style.
Partner this guide with a good phrase book and you're all set for a great visit to one of Europe's best kept secrets!
