Amazing insights into how being a TCK has changed over ...Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 March 2018
I work with a lot of TCk's and do a lot of writing about them too. This book is a must read for any modern TCK. Amazing insights into how being a TCK has changed over the past 30 years as well.
welcome to our TCK lifeReviewed in Canada on 26 May 2017
Happy to see a friend's published book....and happy to read other TCK's stories, that are much like my own.
So very helpful!Reviewed in the United States on 4 October 2016
This is a very helpful book. As a family who lived overseas for 4 years, this is helpful for understanding how my kids experienced life, and how it influenced them, as opposed to how the adults have been changed. For example, my blond, blue eyed, curly haired kid tells people he is from Beijing when they ask, because he lived there for half of his first 8 years of his life. He was upset at almost 11 that he couldn't put Chinese as his nationality on a school project. This book is thoughtful and insightful.

very well written and informativeReviewed in the United States on 8 January 2017
Hi Tanya, I wanted to tell you I finished your book over Christmas and was very impressed. Your writing style is so clear and smooth. Much of the content was a review for me however your style of organizing it and including interviews with people was very interesting and a terrific method for communicating. It did not hurt that I knew some of the people that you listed. I really liked the last quarter of the book when you got into some of the observations of TCK's emotionally and long term. That was concise, clear and helpful. Well done Tanya!!! You are a terrific writer. Thanks for sharing your book.

Interesting read, although a bit too much in a sociological and academic format. Would be great to have this information available to the public, educators, corporates and other institutons in an easier reading format.
