"This comprehensive book provides proven guidelines for immigrants and refugees, from their inception and resettlement to full integration. The lessons learned and the best practices compiled in this book will help immigrants and refugees take control of and lead successful lives.” - Ambassador Waheed Waheedullah, Ph.D.

Like every other immigrant, when Atta Arghandiwal first came to the United States, he looked for a guide that could help him navigate through his new life and environment but could never find one. Many immigrant self-help guides focused on just one or a few topics, while others were so complicated that they were discouraging rather than helpful. It took a lot of time to find the information he needed. So he created a condensed guide to success for immigrants—a road map for the whole family, filled with proven tips and strategies than can be used from the birth of a child to retirement and beyond.

This comprehensive book provides proven tips, advice and strategies for becoming a successful immigrant.

In this easy-to-follow guide, readers will:
· Discover hundreds of valuable US and Canadian resources
· Get handy, time-saving worksheets and checklists
· Find an easy-to-understand glossary for looking up unfamiliar terms
· Learn valuable advice from “Atta’s Lessons,” to avoid making the same mistakes he did as an immigrant.
