“Time Out: Bahrain says: OK – if you buy ONE book about Saudi Arabia before you go, make sure it’s this one!!
Don’t Forget to Tape the Toilets: The Missing Employee Orientation Manual for Saudi Arabia and Bahrain was written for those going to work or thinking of going to work in Saudi Arabia.
One reviewer wrote,
“OK – if you buy ONE book about Saudi Arabia before you go, make sure it’s this one!!
The author is American, and writes this employee manual primarily for workers of a company called Yorks, but makes frequent references to Aramco, and has a mine of information about general life that would be useful for anyone.
I thought the title was strange – it is, until you read it and find out why you need to do this…! This is one of the many reasons why you should seriously read this book before you go. Out of all the books on Saudi for prospective workers or tourists I’ve read, this is the one that has the most down-to-earth, gritty detail that you don’t get anywhere else. It’s a bargain, and a goldmine of information. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
Time Out: Bahrain says that this humorous, tongue-in-cheek book is full of “interesting information.”
Working in Saudi Arabia is unlike working anywhere else. This is not a normal place. There is no normal here. If you are thinking of taking a job in Saudi Arabia you need to read this book. If you are thinking of working for Saudi Aramco, you need this book. If you are thinking of working as a nurse in Saudi Arabia, you need to read this book.
