It has been my dream for some time to share my advice with expats on the ins and outs of living in my country. With my publications Ask Ali: A guide to Abu Dhabi and Ask Ali : A guide to Dubai my dream is now reality. My inspiration for was the many thought-provoking questions posed to me through my Web site and during my cultural awareness seminars that I’ve been delivering in the last 5 years. The Ask Ali books contain all my local knowledge in a portable size with entertaining sketches to draw readers in.

Here's the blurb from the back cover of my books:

Finally, a guide book that gives you the inside scoop on how to really interact with locals – written by a local. Ali Alsaloom is one of the fastest rising media stars and public speakers in the Gulf. His first guidebook informs thousands, as does his column in the weekly magazine M. For his work as a cultural ambassador, Ali was the winner of the 2010 Khalifa Fund business Aware.

Add to that Ali’s extensive worldwide travels and you can see why he is considered the pre-eminent Emirati expert on intercultural affairs, with a special sensitivity to the expat experience.

After reading the Ask Ali guides, you will know:

How the UAE went from the camel to the Cadillac
The essential information for relocating, exploring and settling in
The best way to get a bargain when you visit the souq
Where to find the best local restaurants
How to show respect during Ramadan
