This book is a great start for you if you consider relocation and if you are US citizen. For others it might be just partly useful, as majority of tips here are applicable for US citizens only ( like visa options for US citizens).

Basically, main idea of the book - you can relocate wherever you want and either be hired by employer in the country(expat) or work for employer outside of the country you live in and get salary in other country's currency (digital nomad). Some of the advices I, as expat for already 8 years, find extremely useful, others quite obvious and arguable. What I really liked from this book is that author provided very useful links to job boards in countries he's been working in - Singapore, South Korea, Australia, Columbia and Ireland.

Narrator's work is great - I really liked his work, pauses and intonation.

Shortly speaking - this book is exactly what it's title says. And David Harris did a great job to summarize this information for beginners. Jonathan Fraizer is well understandab, doing good job here. I liked this book and I will definitely re listen it later to remind myself meditation technics.

Little bit more details.
Jonathan Fraizer is very understandable for non-native English speakers narrator. I am not a native speaker and sometime I have problems with understanding some narrators, especially with British or Irish accents. Jonathan reads really good, his voice is sooo meditating(you can even start meditation just by listening him).

The author shortly describes benefits of meditation, supporting them points by science researches and tips to achieve mindfulness. I liked the part with explaining mediation technics, didn't even know there so many of them.

What this book is lacking of, I think, is kind of personal experience of author, some personality( "10% happier" comes to my mind) . But because of this, this book is so short and useful information concentrated.

Overall, I would advice this book to my friends and will pass to my wife, definitely worth it!

Note, I was given this copy of the audiobook by my request for free in exchange for unbiased review.

Some sketches were really funny especially these with major and Jason and librarian. Some parts of the story were veeery absurd to me (like ending of the story), though still funny.

You what's the difference between this biography a d almost any other? It is truly honest. It feels like you are living Tara's life with her, you are always close to her, you actually are in her brain.
Now I know why everyone recommends this book.

Amazing set of short life stories by Alan Arkin
Wise, helpful, have-to-listen.
I most enjoyed his story about Arigo - a healer from Brazil.

Great performance, scary but a little bit too long

The performance made by Michael C. Hall is just brilliant! Old man's voice was amazing - I even repeat it in my head and want to talk with such south accent (just kidding).
The story is not great, I found it a little bit too long, some moments repeats again and again and tension is getting lower because of them. However, it is still surprisingly scary.
