Welcome to Boston is packed with handy tips and cultural interpretation about life in the US. This unique collection of up-to-date websites, phone numbers and lists of resources helps international students, scholars and visitors manage a move to Boston. Much more than a tourist guide, this book explains the difference between Bake and Broil on your oven dial, why the bank asks for your mother's maiden name and what to do in a half bath, plus much more. A unique practical resource for anyone moving to Boston, Massachusetts. Special attention is given to the questions international newcomers have, but people moving from other parts of the US will find all their questions answered here as well. Updated yearly, the book gives reliable, detailed information not found in any other single resource

Review:

I just finished reading your Welcome to Boston Guide for International Newcomers which my wife received when starting [her new job] recently. I've been living in the USA for a total of 9 years and knew a lot of the information through experience. But it was good to get confirmation on some items through your book. Along the lines--the best books are the ones telling you what you already know. And I wish I had all this information in one booklet when coming to the USA for the first time. This will make a huge difference to my wife and her start in the city and at work-- whole different ball game for her... So, thank you for creating this book and making it available to [her employer] and hopefully many other places, too. --Rainer B., German manager with a large global corporation --personal correspondence
