About the Author:

As reporter, editor and columnist at newspapers in Pennsylvnaia and Florida, Toni Polancy covered stories that ranged from murder to meatballs, politics to polygamy. After 23 years in journalism, she sacrificed a job as managing editor of daily newspaper to move to Hawaii. The islands had a nasty reputation for luring newcomers only to cast them adrift on a treacherous sea of high prices, low wages and scarce jobs, so Polancy brought her own business. She started successful magazines on Maui and Kauai.

From Library Journal:

Hawaii. Paradise. Gentle breezes, sunshine, coconuts and bananas falling into your lap, beautiful scenery, great recreational opportunities. All true (well, almost all), and all there for the tourist. But what about permanent residents? Polancy's guide is essential for anyone seriously contemplating relocation. A Kauai entrepreneur learned only after the fact that her home-operated business would be severely hampered by the limit of only one telephone line in her condo and the absence of home postal delivery, with a year-long wait for a P.O. box. While a military assignment can be considered a transfer to paradise, the financial realities, including higher rent, insurance, utilities, and food, may cause a plunge into personal bankruptcy. Polancy provides useful information on the pluses and minuses of each island, facilities for children, and such delights as tsunamis and hurricanes, rats, head lice, roaches, crime, and DUI penalties. Read this first if you're thinking of moving to paradise. Highly recommended for large public libraries.?Thomas K. Fry, Penrose Lib., Univ. of Denver
