I havent' read this book, I bought it when we were planning to move but never had a chance to read it. In the back cover it reads: " This all-in-one guidebook combines practical tips, psychological insights, and social commentary to help people who move and professionals who aid in the relocation of people... How can a person know if he or she is ready to move? How can we assure better transitions? How can companies assist employees who are relocating? What difference does it make whether a couple moves for "his" or "her" job? How are older adults, singles, and families with children affected differently by moves?..." It seems to be a helpful guide.
