"For once, a book that tells the truth about the expat experience."
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
Expatriate women have long been the envy of women trapped on the treadmill of everyday life back home. They get to escape Groundhog Day to enjoy carefree lives abroad—pampered by housekeepers, fine food and world travel. Right?
Wrong. Expat Women: Confessions—50 Answers to Your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad is a new book launched today which dispels the myth that expatriate women have it easy abroad. Released by ExpatWomen.com—the women’s site that for years has been privy to this group’s secret admissions, Expat Women: Confessions shares a wealth of wisdom and positive tips to motivate women at every stage of their expat journey.
Written by experienced expats Andrea Martins (ExpatWomen.com’s co-founder) and Victoria Hepworth (Lifeline Shanghai’s founder), this unique book covers popular topics like leaving family back home, transitioning quickly, managing intercultural relationships and parenting bilingual children. They also address more difficult issues, such as expat infidelity, divorce, alcoholism and reverse culture shock.
“For once, a book that tells the truth about the expat experience. An inspiring account, and a must read for those contemplating an international assignment or those already on one.” -- Yvonne McNulty, PhD, Assistant Professor, James Cook University, Singapore
This book is for any woman who has ever wondered what it is like to live abroad, work abroad or accompany their working partner abroad. It is also for any woman already living the expat life but having mixed feelings about settling in, rebuilding their identity, changes in their relationships, successfully managing their money and career, raising children far from home or repatriating.
"A terrific book! Real-life examples of the challenges expat women face, with insightful and practical advice, this should be on the must-read list for anyone involved with expatriate administration." -- Andrea David, Head of Global Mobility, Bloomberg LP
To celebrate the exciting launch of this one-of-a-kind book, ten winners will share in US$5,000 worth of prizes, drawn randomly from the Expat Women: Confessions purchase e-receipts submitted to ExpatWomen.com in May 2011.
