Review:

A gold mine of information. The insights are sound and research-based; the advice is practical and has far-reaching potential; and the personal stories by scores of people who grew up in a culture "not their own" offer a richness of understanding regarding the internal world and extensive experience of third culture kids. This book is a must read! -- David L. Wickstrom, Psychologist and adult TCK

From the Publisher:

In Third Culture Kids David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken explore the experiences of those who have become known as "third culture kids" (TCKs) - children who grow up or spend a significant part of their childhood living abroad. Rich with real-life anecdotes from TCKs, this is one of the first books to fully examine the nature of the TCK experience and its effect on maturing, developing a sense of identity, and adjusting to one's "passport country" upon return. David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken give readers an understanding of the challenges and benefits of the TCK life and provide practical suggestions and advice on maximizing those benefits. TCKs and adult TCKs; parents, relatives and friends of TCKs; and the organizations that send them overseas will find this an invaluable resource. For many TCKs this book will be their first opportunity to discover that they share a common heritage with countless others around the world.
