You're holding in your hands the book thanks to which you could get the real opportunity to recognize the USA, to see the entire country from inside, to understand neighbors and colleagues, to learn deeper their life and culture and, as a result, to make your own life more successful. Your transfer to American way of life demands time, patience, and of course — English language. After all these years — twenty or even longer, many of our immigrants couldn't manage it and first of all because of their poor English.
This book — «America with you» — is the second reference edition by Boris Talis. It is a detailed narration of the contemporary America (the first one was titled «You Go to America» and was published in Russia in 1993 in number of 100,000).
The book is addressed to those who are planning to immigrate as well as those who have already settled here. We hope it'll become the irreplaceable assistant and wisest adviser in your travel along the deepest ocean of laws and rules created by the lawmakers of this diverse, dynamic and in many aspects unique country. Maybe, some of your questions will never get any answer…
Boris Talis is an American citizen. As many of immigrants, he went through an uneasy way of adaptation, he knows a lot, and not by hearsay, about difficulties, which meet those who by fortune appear in this unfamiliar country.

All this priceless information is a basis of this book.
The recommendations given in the book will help the readers to avoid the wrong steps or nanve mistakes which are (alas!) always to be paid for by newcomers — and not only with money. Therefore try to remember these lessons in order to avoid your own mistakes and you'll be able to save your money, and not on trivia!
