An authoritative and humorous examination of both the pros and cons of living, working, and doing business in Mexico. It avoids boosterism and gives the reader realistic ways to determine if Mexico is for them or not. Provides practical information including cost-of-living charts, insights into social mores, and business-specific customs that can make or break your business life. Also includes information to help families adjust to living in Mexico as well as details on personal social customs, especially international dating and marriage. Finally, and most importantly, is a chapter on private and government-sponsored medical care that could save your life.
