The world is a Class offers some practical insights about what its like to teach abroad. It's helpful if you are considering trying this. It's pretty brief and somewhat repetitive, but a quick read and a good place to start an investigation.

This book is very informative and is written by a very experienced english teacher. This is the perfect book for someone interested in transitioning into this career field.
Kazigrel
Well written. Well edited. Simple and direct. Already being loaned to one of my friends who is going to SE Asia with me.
Coiriel
The author sounds like a pleasant fellow, but his presentation of his adventures as a teacher of English abroad is rather superficial, a once-over-lightly recounting of his experiences, and not particularly well written. For someone thinking of teaching English abroad, as I am, I think it would be practically useless.

Elementary information. You can find more complete information on internet sites. This book is not worth buying.
Feri
I am sorry, but some of the prices for this thing are absurd. I paid $8 for it and I feel ripped off. Even if it is a fairly informative pamphlet.
Kamick
Written for native English speakers with more adventure than knowledge of teaching, this concise primer combines practical tips with engaging first-personal descriptions of teaching abroad. The friendly, almost conversational style answers critical questions, points out potential pitfalls, and celebrates teaching English as a way to see the world, share experiences, and develop as a human being.

Does it provide as much information as an MA in TESOL? Of course not. Is it slightly dated? Yes. Does it cover as many teaching techniques as classic work like Techniques in Teaching Writing (Teaching Techniques in English as a Second Language)? No.

But it's a fair, persuasive pitch for a fast-growing profession and almost pitch-perfect for young American, British, and Canadian graduates looking for their first teaching job abroad. This thin book also deserves to be on the short list of books for English Language Trainers and short-term TESOL certificate programs.
I took a TESL (teaching English as a second language) position in Bogota, Columbia and learned much of what is in this book the hard way. If you are new to TESL then by all means read this book!
