"I bought this book just before moving to Germany. In those first few weeks it was my bible. The information is very detailled and up to date and there is loads packed in. The style is light hearted so it is a pleasure to read, but that does not mean it skimps on facts. A friend who had been in Germany for 6 years still found useful information (like the detailled instructions for registering a car). The book also provides plenty of background information; there is an highly amusing chapter on the Germans hidden toward the back. Very highly recommended." - Simon Message, Amazon

"Invaluable book for those with serious intentions of living and working abroad. Immensely useful to avoid expensive mistakes and avoiding cultural pitfalls. Superb resource with in depth knowledge without getting boring and dry." - P. Lowe, Amazon

Excellent book - gives all the right details about how to set up a new life in Germany. I myself intend to spend a prolonged period there and so I found this book invaluable. This book is a must-have! It saves a great deal of wasted time and money by directing one to the right offices and providing them an outline of the most recent relevant legislation. Viel Glueck! :) - Shawn Pace, Amazon

I bought this just before moving to Munich. It has been invaluable and saved me so much time and some embarrassment! - PS, Amazon
