The Exchange Student Survival Kit has become the essential guide for young people traveling abroad, helping them better understand the unique experience of international exchange programs. More important, it shows students how to avoid many common misunderstandings and problems that can occur in the course of their adjustment to a new culture, a new family, a new school and a new community. Based on her years of research and professional involvement with AFS Intercultural Programs, Dr. Hansel has filled the book with examples taken from the experiences of dozens of exchange students from a broad spectrum of cultures. This much-awaited new edition includes New communications technology as it affects the experience: e-mail, instant messaging, cell phones, online games and blogs and information searches. Important advice on personal safety and pressing concerns for parents and students in light of war, terrorism and crime. Changes in society and family life that affect travelers: fast food replacing family meals, a new emphasis on religious beliefs, consumerism and globalism. For students going abroad, the Survival Kit is the first thing to pack!

Yes, you can improve your writing without memorising endless rules, perusing checklists of do's and don'ts or revisiting the lessons of secondary school. Quick & Painless Business Writing reveals secrets that will eliminate business-writing phobias and faux pas and help you create outstanding documents that get optimal results. First, you'll learn that grammar is not a collection of stagnant rules you'd better follow (or else), but an ever-changing set of principles with plenty of choices. Then you'll discover secrets about writing your English teachers never told you: the secret power of nouns, the destructive force of innocent-seeming verbs and the way sentence structure can elicit certain responses. You'll happily replace what you learned about structure with an altogether new understanding of how to open, develop and close your messages. Even better, you'll learn how to build a cohesive message quickly, with little need for rewriting.

Mid Life Crisis: that period when growing dissatisfactions lead to inevitable questions about the sustainability of our present place in the World and usually accompanied by a sudden encounter with the concept of our own mortality, can lead to a frightening conclusion - "Is this it...?!" Is this ME for the rest of my life...?! The rigours of this time - highly painful periods of personal re-evaluation and an uncompromising test of our true values - can leave us running aground in shallow waters of despair unless we have map and compass. This book provides both. Its world map helps the reader to understand his place in it and the coaching tools provide an opportunity to plot a route home -wherever that might be now. By the end of the book, the world will be a smaller and less frightening place as you find not just a path to understanding yourself better, but also the courage to express yourself authentically and with purpose.
