Here’s what verified purchasers of the “Philippines Expat Advisor” had to say:

“Moving is never an easy decision especially if one is going to move to the other side of the world. Luckily, Dave DeWall’s book, “The Philippines Expat Advisor” is available.

It is a thorough read on everything and anything you are going to read when you move to the Philippines.

It lets you in on what you are going to encounter and how to act on them when you arrive.

It is a complete guide but never boring. I have seen other guide books for moving to the Philippines but nothing as thorough and witty as The Philippines Expat Advisor.

It’s just like talking to a friend who is very much concerned for your safety and well-being.”

“The book is extensive in the areas that it covers, but covers each in a way that the information is to the point and not drawn out. This lets you cover a wide area of topics without being bored.

Very good book also in that it does not just give you the bright side of life and times in the Philippines, but tells you what to look for and to use ‘Common Sense’ when traveling to the Philippines and determining if you want to stay or not.”
