When I moved to Abu Dhabi, I had a million questions. This is an attempt to answer 175 of them.
If you’re new to Abu Dhabi, this is the book you need. It’s full of hard-won practical information, and because it’s a PDF e-book it’s both searchable and full of clickable links.
What’s more, it has an accompanying Google map that details the location for just about every official department, office, landmark, beach, shop and general point of interest that’s mentioned in the book.

⇒ Where’s the map? Click here and it will open in a new browser window
⇒ How much will I have to pay for the book? It’s just £10. Why British currency? Because PayPal can’t handle dirhams, so I took an easy option. It’s the equivalent (at the exchange rates current when I wrote this) of AED 53 or USD 14.45 or AUD 19.5 or EUR 12.8. A bit of a bargain in any currency, if you ask me.
⇒ How do I buy the book? Easy – click this button:
⇒ What will happen then? You’ll be taken to a PayPal order form. You don’t need a PayPal account yourself to use this – any credit card will do. Once PayPal has accepted the payment, you’ll go to the download page and your download should start automatically.
⇒ Will I get a receipt? PayPal should send you confirmation of the purchase and you should also get a thank-you email with the transaction details. Get in touch if you need a receipt and haven’t had one.
⇒ Can you do me a bulk discount? I’m happy to offer bulk-purchase rates on 10 or more downloads – email me to discuss.
⇒ Can you do me a custom version? I can tweak the look and even the content to give you a version of the book customised for your organisation. Again, drop me a line.
