I have just read "Don't Tell Mum I Work On The Rigs" and "Erections In The Far East" both very funny and enjoyable books (rigging in this case) by people working in various countries. Can anyone recommend any similar genre books?

Chucking it All: How Downshifting to a Windswept Scottish Island Did Absolutely Nothing to Improve My Quality of Life

I know the author of this, but it's a great book regardless! It's a funny story of moving to find the good life on Orkney, and finding nothing but misery and a craving for the 'bad' life.

It's a book written in part for people whose work might take them abroad rather than about people working abroad but Going Dutch in Beijing is an amusing attempt to deal with fish-out-of-water mistakes people might make in other countries . . .
