    BOOKS: " Hiring & Managing Domestic Help" versus " The Helper's Help

    Dear all,

    I am trying to buy one of the mentioned books for my new helper whom had never been out of her country from Indonesia.

    Haven't got the chance to look into the contents of " Hiring & Managing Domestic Help" but saw "The Helper's Help" already have helpful pointers and photos.

    Anyone owned one of these books to give a good review on which I should lay my hands on? I cannot find any available on shelf stock on " Hiring & Managing Domestic Help" in big stores even for Page One, Dymocks etc.

    Thanks in advance

    The one I saw is a Singapore-hk edition, not sure if that's the one you are speaking of... Hope to help!

    author's message:

    Please let her know that she can order it here: http://www.havenbooksonline.com/book...-domestic-help

    It can also be found at CitySuper IFC, Great, Bumps to Babes, quite a few Dymocks and Bookazine.

    carang: thanks heaps! Cool to know you are involved in this book! will be interesting to find out more now

    trttrt : great info.! maybe I will not have the chance to go to the library, which one do you recommend amongst these 2 books?

    If anyone wcould be kind to inform me the differences between these 2 books, I would just have to buy one immediately from the stores without doing any comparison...

    Thanks

    one is about managing the helper and how to deal with problems/issues that arise. the other is more about schedules, duties etc of the helper.

    both are excellent resources.
