Great guide!!!!!!!

I took this up with me when I went to move to Seattle, it was very helpful! Unfortunately I ended up having to move out of beautiful Seattle, but this guide was great.

Must have...

This book is a must have if you are considering moving to the Seattle area. My family and I are planning on relocating to Washington early next year. We've never spent any significant amount of time in Seattle, so this book has served as a great source of information on the different neighborhoods in and around Seattle. We've been able to narrow down our choices for when we go and scout the area this Winter. We never would have been able to check out everything, and this book has allowed us to rule out different areas. It is also a great source of information on everything Seattle (shopping, tourist info, transportation, public services, etc...)

An Excellent Relocation Tool - Misses Color and Pictures

This book has served as an outstanding relocation-tool during our move to Greater Seattle region. It's well-organized and provides thorough information for multiple neighborhoods. The author covers various aspects of everyday life, such as neighborhood profile, commute, schools, dining, and shopping etc. Although it covers suburbs of Bellevue, Redmond, Everett, Kenmore, Bothell and Tacoma etc., but the coverage for suburbs is not as extensive as for the city of Seattle. I wish the author had covered Eastside in a little more detail. I would rate the material "Five Star", but deducting one for no color, few maps, and no pictures. The author has done an amazing job, if the publisher can follow some style elements for color and pictures from DK Publishing, it could make this guide an undisputed leader. Even after living for a year in Seattle suburbs, I still use it as a reference document and every time I learn something new and interesting. For example, I recently learned about the business partnership between Seattle PI and Seattle Times, and where does the NE (North East - e.g. NE 145th St.) starts etc. I strongly recommend this book to all new comers to Seattle area. If I ever decide to relocate again, I will never do so without buying any such guide as it certainly makes learnings straightforward and relocation a little less stressful. PS: I personally own the 2nd edition, the content for both editions is worth every penny.

Dont Move to Seattle without first buying this BOOK! "MUST HAVE"

This book was most complete of any I have seen so far, author certainly must have deep knowledge of Seattle area. Lots of tidbits that were completely unexpected!

A Book For Relocators That Even Non-Relocators Can Enjoy

The latest edition of THE NEWCOMER'S HANDBOOK FOR MOVING TO AND LIVING IN SEATTLE is a book intended for people moving to the area, but even people who are not going there may enjoy it. It describes in full the best and worst neighborhoods, schools, shopping, dining, and fitness opportunities in the cities of Seattle and Tacoma, as well as their surrounding suburbs. This book is more up to date than the last edition, so it's worth checking out and getting rid of your old edition.
