So You Want To Live In Hawai'i, 2nd Ed. (Barefoot Publishing, 2005)

Monday, August 4, 2008

This unusually frank and thorough book on life in Hawai'i looks at racial issues, real costs of living, politics, job availability, military assignments, schools, child care, retirement and senior concerns, how to move, which island to choose, even romance on the islands, from the eyes of an experienced resident as written for a newbie contemplating a move there. It could probably stand to be updated once more to reflect the impact of recent spikes in fuel and food costs on the island, but as it stands it is an excellent resource for learning about the "real" Hawaii before jumping in.
