This book, like its companion volumes dealing with US jobs and visas, is for anyone who has ever thought about spending some time in the United States. Millions of Europeans have settled in the United States, but today modern communications make it possible for millions more to cross the Atlantic for business or merely for pleasure. The choice is no longer between emigration and the trip of a lifetime. Millions now visit the USA for a period longer than their annual holiday but without ever settling down there. This book is therefore for anyone who has ever thought of living or working in the USA for anything from a few weeks to many years. It is particularly geared to those who would like to experience the USA for more than just a few days' holiday, though even weekend visitors will find much here to inform them about what is available in the USA.
