    Very good information. A little bit dated, but not much. The writing style was not as fluid as the lauding on the back cover would claim, but it was still a quick and fairly enjoyable read. Certainly would recommend to anyone thinking about intercountry adoption or anyone (like myself) who has a more professional/academic interest in the subject area.
