    1. Unlike the other CS books I've read, this is told from a journalist's perspective. The author wasn't actually trying to live and work in the country, integrated as a member of the community. Apparently she had a host family to guide her, to smooth her way.Also, I strongly get the impression that, in many ways, this book is even more dated than the others much of her advice and many of her observations are going to be less relevant to a visitor today.That being said, it is a fascinating book, and [...]

    2. I agreed with everything she said; except that people need DEET and vaccinations! And the average Tico owes money to the bank now, much more so than over 10 years ago when this book was written.

    3. I was surprised by how accurate and spot on this book turned out to be. I actually started reading it before I left for Costa Rica, but I`m happy I was able to finish it in the country since that allowed me to compare what I read with what I was seeing.Overall, a great introduction to the people of the countryybe not as good in terms of how to manage the postal system, transportation, and other details like that. But again, in terms of culture and customs the author did a great job. My only othe [...]

    4. An excellent book for anyone who is considering spending any length of time living in Costa Rica. Definitely not a travel book, but it's not supposed to be. This book kept me interested from cover to cover, and I'd consider it required reading for anyone wanting to know how to adapt to Costa Rican culture.

    5. It's interesting to read another person's point of view of Costa Rican culture as a foreigner. Most agreed with my experience, some details I disagreed with. I recommend to others who are living in Costa Rica.

    6. Enjoyable. A good overview for gringos. I especially liked the resources given for potential entrepreneurs and glossary of Tico slang.

    7. Helpful as a reference for those going to Cr for work, fun, business, etc. This edition is several years old now (2006), but was still helpful.

    8. So far this is the best book I have read about Costa Rica in terms of in-depth information. Highly recommended if visiting or thinking about retiring to Costa Rica.
