The city of Atlanta is home to some 425,000 people, but the entire metro Atlanta area boasts a population of 4.7 million, with newcomers arriving every day. Recent growth has centered primarily in northern counties of the metro area, although there has also been a resurgence of interest in the more urban, intown neighborhoods surrounding downtown Atlanta. Long been considered the commercial capital of the South, the Atlanta area is attractive to both established companies and entrepreneurs. Recognizing that many new arrivals both live and work entirely outside of Atlanta proper, and indeed outside the perimeter, this third edition extensively covers communities from Alpharetta to East Point, and from Marietta to Lawrenceville. The third edition also presents essential sections on Finding a Place to Live, Moving and Storage, Money Matters, Getting Settled, Helpful Services, Childcare and Education, Shopping for the Home, Cultural Life, Sports and Recreation, Greenspace, Weather & Climate, Places of Worship, Volunteering, Transportation, Temporary Lodgings, and Quick Getaways. A calendar of metro Atlanta events, a listing of Atlanta-related guidebooks, fiction, and nonfiction, and a directory of useful phone numbers and web sites round out this indispensable book. Three maps (Atlanta proper, neighboring towns, and surrounding counties) guide the reader to communities, freeways, and points of interest. In addition to being thoroughly fact-checked, updated, and revised, the third edition includes such new material as:Cherokee County communities, focusing on Canton and WoodstockAn Immigrant Newcomers sectionA Literary Life sectionA thorough discussion of intrastate and interstate moves and consumer complaints

The Newcomer's Handbook frustrated me repeatedly. Had I looked at it in a store, I never would have bought it.

The book is very poorly organized; while there are chapters, the index makes it difficult to find what you're looking for. The editors seem to have assumed that the reader intends to read the entire book from beginning to end; it's not usable as a quick reference guide.

Worst of all, the book fails to mention any other written source of information not already published by the same company. If the Newcomer's Handbook for moving to the USA is this bad, they're doing their readers a terrible disservice by mentioning it.

I strongly recommend the Not for Tourists Guide to Atlanta 2007 (Not for Tourists) instead. The real estate agent we worked with told us that it's one of the best, and I agree. See my review for that book for more information on why.

It is informative as a newcomer to the area. It is easy to use & very comprehensive. I will carry it with me as I travel around Atlanta.

Another book in the "Newcomer's Handbook" series from First

Books warns us that the United States has "a population so

big and so diverse" that making general statements about it

is "almost impossible". This title fills us in with the

specifics of Atlanta, Georgia.

First Books, now in its third edition of this guide, calls

Atlanta "a city that combines downhome southern charm with

cosmopolitan ambiance". It's probably better known worldwide

as the city that was birthplace to an unlikely trio --

Reverend Martin Luther King Jr, Coca-Cola, and CNN! This was

also home, a generation ago, to my first American pen-friend;

Mandy Burr, are you reading this?

There are ten other titles in First Books' 'Newcomer's

Handbooks' series. Atlanta's begins with a useful

introduction to the local lingo and history. Lingo includes

the pronounciation of "at-LAN-ah" (dropping the last "t"), to

concepts like The Bravos (the nickname for the Atlanta

Braves), CDC (the Centre for Disease Control, located near

Emory), the Concrete Campus (Georgia State University), Emory

(pronounced EM-ree, to refer to either the university or

hospital), and other locations, sobriquets for newspapers or

streets, and more.

For those wanting to know the background, there's an

all-too-brief background of how a Creek Indian settlement

called Standing Peachtree became a progressive and

influential city by the early 1970s, and is now battling

out-of-control urban sprawl and increased traffic congestion.

But this is not a history book. It's real utility comes out

of chapters dealing with the different counties of Atlanta

and its neighbourhood. Much value also comes from pages on

finding a place to live, childcare and education, shopping,

cultural life, locally-available greenspace, weather and

climate (including air-pollution and insects), and even

volunteering.

There's a good chance that those needing this book might find

the section on 'temporary lodgings' useful too. If maintained

accurately, the listing of useful phone numbers and web-sites

also come as a boon.

One's earlier review, of a newcomer's title to the USA as a

whole was more fulsome in its praise. This being a bit narrow

in its target -- meant exclusively for those settling in

Atlanta -- the appeal is obviously more specific. But surely,

there is quite some information of a useful nature here too,

provided your target is this city that attracts "a multitude

of newcomers".
