Ross's book Moving to the Dominican Republic: The Paradox of Paradise is about the hilarious yet serious lessons learned as an American who has decided to move to the Dominican Republic. It is a must read for anyone who has wondered what it would be like to live in the Caribbean.
Ross uses real life experiences to describe the culture shock and other setbacks of making the transition from living in the United States to living in the Dominican Republic. The book includes both personal stories as well as unique observations to describe the ups and downs of living on an Island.
If you have lived in the Dominican Republic you will love this book. If you are planning on going to the Dominican Republic, the lessons in this book will help you be prepared. If you are interested in international living, or possibly retiring in the Caribbean, this is the perfect book for you!
Moving to the Dominican Republic and maintaining a USA based job has been an exhilarating experience. I believe most people would love the lifestyle and opportunities of living in the Caribbean. This book explains the ins and outs of making such a transition.
