I purchased this book before moving to Malaysia. I haven't found any of the information in it useful. It didn't prepare me for Malaysian culture in any way. I am wondering if it is about a different country. I live in Kuala Lumpur now and the book certainly doesn't apply to this city. Maybe the author is from another part of the country but I really doubt this causes the problem. She talks about ghosts and probably old Malay traditions. The only useful information is that you need to bring your sweater because the offices are way over-cooled.
As a matter of fact there is not much valid information about Malaysian living from an expat's point of view on the net. If you are planning to move to Malaysia try to contact someone who lives here, preferably not some bored housewife who is very happy just going to the mall all day. Pretty much that is all you can do in this city.
So, save your money and don't buy the book.

I bought this book shortly before moving to Malaysia for a year. Reading it filled me with absolute terror. It made the country sound uncompromisingly alien and rather unpleasant. Thankfully I ignored the book and discovered Malaysia to be a very pleasant and incredibly inviting place.

The problem with the book (apart from the writer's continually negative attitudes to everything) is her very narrow perspective. Before coming to Malaysia, she admits, she spent her whole life in a small Swiss town. Thus, she finds everything that is slightly different from her upbringing horrifying and worth commenting on. The fact that not everyone in Malaysia is European and that they don't eat European food is considered worth several awe-inspired mentions . For anyone who has ever travelled, or who has a more cosmipolitan background, most of these comments are useless and are in fact rather nauseating.

Even worse, however, is the fact that she is only writing for those likely to live in her very specific situation - namely as the wife of a rich ex-pat. She spends a whole chapter lamenting the difficulty of choosing a good maid. She also points out the importance of finding things to do when you are at home and your husband is at work.

For me, as someone working in Malaysia full-time for a relatively modest salary, all this was completely useless. In fact, I'd imagine that for the bulk of people coming to Malaysia, much of this information will be either off-putting or superfluous.

Thus, I'd recommend avoiding this book - otherwise you might decide not to come at all.

This book doesn't quite match its cover - the information is rather dated and needs an overhaul for 2014. Younger readers would find the information less relevant (i.e. little mention of internet use and young adults' social events for example). Parents taking their children to live in Malaysia or individuals going to work there would find aspects of the book helpful though. The tone of the book has an old-fashioned feel but an easy read and I could imagine the writer being a longterm expat or 'old hand'. However there is good advice on hiring staff and local customs. Less so on history, modern business and modern politics.
