I have just heard about this fantastic new book by J.A. and T.R. Carty, which reveals all about the sometimes complicated American Immigration system. It is a fantastic resource for anyone who is looking to make the move to the US, but is unsure of where to start and what visa options there are out there.
This book is on the subject of immigration to the USA, including the various types of visa and discussing in depth their eligibility criteria and pros and cons as well as a general overview of the application process. It also deals with obtaining a greencard and U.S. citizenship.
A chapter is devoted to what is wrong with the U.S. immigration system, its shortcomings and inadequacies, highlighting any problems which you may have in navigating through the system.
Other sections deal with the process of moving to live in the USA, including a discussion of the pros and cons of living in the country, moving to the U.S. with children and the practical problems you may encounter during your first weeks in the country. The book is different from others on the subject of immigration, in that it gives a "warts and all" approach to the subject.
The book was written by fellow British citizens with backgrounds in Law and Computer Programming who have extensive experience of the U.S., having bought their first home in Orlando in 1997, and having moved out to live in Florida in 2003. They have run four separate businesses in the Orlando area, on two different visas - the E-2 and L-1, and have also put a child through school and eventually college on an F-1 student visa.
This book attempts to explain the process of immigration to the U.S. in simpler terms than many books written on the subject and to give their personal experiences as well as explaining the legal aspects.
They hope to have written a book which is both realistic and informative, not only about immigration, but about the whole process of moving to live in the U.S.
The book is available on http://www.amazon.com/ and http://www.amazon.co.uk/ and is also available for download on the Kindle.
