An important caveat to the title of this book

1 out of 5 stars
3 out of 5 stars
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-26-19

The book is based on the author’s own first hand experiences. It makes for an interesting account, but offers little inspiration or valuable tips if your situation is not similar to his.

This is written for American college students/recent grads, who likely have never travelled outside the U.S. before. The author shares a checklist of things to pack including toothpaste and deodorant. He also gives such insights as stating that ”North American culture” is different from ”European culture” which is also different from ”Asian culture”. If you find these kind of tips helpful or don’t see any problem with such broad generalizations then this book will probably inspire you to do that study-abroad program.

If not, than you will be as disappointed as I was.
