An excellent, very detailed book which gives loads of very helpful information. I have read a number of books about emigrating to Australia and this is certainly the best I have found so far. - Gill, Amazon

Having read a number of publications of similar approach I must admit this one's outstanding. The information provided is not only considering almost every single aspect of living in Oz, but most important: it's (imho) spot-on and even pretty much up-to-date. David's writing is fun and easy to read and I would recommend this book to everyone on the move down under. - A Customer, Amazon

I have been considering emigrating to Australia for a couple of years and had so many questions that needed answers before I made up my mind. This book was brilliant, it states in plain english many of the basics things I needed to know. The immigration agency referred me to several 100+ page documents that still left me confused. This book clearly and concisely explains most of the headaches you'll face going through the emigration process and how to settle in OZ. - C. Beckett, Amazon

A must-have book for anyone thinking of emigrating to Australia or for those who have now got a visa to migrate. It's very factual, easy to read and humerous. It's just like an encyclopaedia but more fun to read!

Fantastic book it covers all the main information you need to know before you move to Australia and for when you are there. Highly recommended! - Claire Whyte, Amazon
