Expat Entrepreneur: How to Create and Maintain Your Own Portable Career Anywhere in the World Reviews
I was doing my senior paper on expats and bought this book thinking it would help but unfortunately this book DOES NOT whatsoever talk about how to create and maintain your own career in a different country. What it does have is people who became expats and share their history i.e. what they used to do and what they do now :( Not very much help if you are writing a paper expats or entrepreneurs.

The title of The Expat Entrepreneur, by Jo Parfitt, is slightly misleading. The book is in fact much more a motivating reading about how to become self-employed from home as an expat, doing what you are passionate about, and how to use your creativity in the development of new activities that can eventually bring money - all this based mostly on 23 interviews of expats who "have been there & done it".
