Produktbeschreibungen

Dave describes the dark side of tourism with such comical precision that you'll wonder why you ever bother to leave the safety of your living room. For my money, nobody has ever produced a better snapshot of the Baggage Carousel, "where passengers traditionally gather at the end of a flight to spend several relaxing hours watching the arrival of luggage from some other flight, which comes randomly spurting out of a mysterious troll-infested tunnel that is apparently connected to another airport, possibly in a different dimension."

5.0 von 5 Sternen This must be Barry's funniest book... 13. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I, like another reviewer below, was also introduced to Dave Barry through this book. It really is impossible to not laugh out loud while reading it. (Just thinking about it is making me laugh right now.) Some of the highlights of the book are Dave's summary of Walt Disney World ("do not fall out of the tram without first coming to a full and complete stop..."), his thoughts about flying and airports ("...in fact, when travelers aren't walking through the detectors, the security personnel use them to cook their lunch..."), and how to correctly fold a suit for packing (first, lay the suit on a flat surface, such as a tennis court...). Well, I guess I don't do justice to him. The innumerable charts and drawings only make you laugh even more. Be sure to read the Facts at a Glance for all the European countries.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pack This Book Next To Your Non-Wrinkled Suit 3. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the only travel guide you will ever need. Dave Barry covers it all in this dynamic (Chapter 5 inside joke) book. His helpful tips are amazingly funny and the brief histories and informational maps are downright hilarious. You cannot help but laugh out loud on almost every page. Thinking about the section on how to speak a foreign language has me chuckling right now. This book will have you rolling in the aisle of your airplane, making a complete spectacle of yourself, but entertaining the other passengers. After all, as Barry points out, air travel is the real reason why birds never look truly relaxed. Neither will you once you see his diagram of how an airplane flies, but, one thing you will do is laugh uncontrollably. You can't help but enjoy this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is by far the funniest of Dave Barry's works! 11. Oktober 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Although I've read each and every Dave Barry book in existance,
I find myself re-reading his works again and again. They never
fail to entertain me. I'll pick up a Dave Barry book and find it
really hard to put down, although I may have read it ten zillion
times previous. Of all his works (although "Dave Barry Does Japan"
is also ludicrously hilarious), "Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide
You'll Ever Need" is by far his best work. READ IT, please! You
won't stop laughing for weeks! Many friends of mine are now hooked
because they took that advice. Always wanted to learn Spanish? Do
you yearn to know the currency of a small, eastern slavic nation ending in
"via?" It can all be done with this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best humour book ever written 7. September 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I have read this book 14 times in the last 5 years and I still laugh when I read it! I collect comic stuff since I remember existing and this book beats everything. Every time I travel I take it along with me and everyone that reads just a couple of pages is imediatlly laughing out loud. Dave Barry jokes on every conceiveble aspect of traveling and "hits the spot" each and every time. More than 5 sters

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dave Barry is a comedy genius!!! 24. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need was the second book of Barry's that I've read and all I can say is, "Wow!" While reading this book, one should image the most ridiculous scenerio conceivable, then read on to find something even funnier. I especially enjoyed his take on flying and airport security. "I certainly have a lot of body hair, for a woman!" is an expression that should be used if a male wishes to avoid suspicion according to Barry. His analysis of each state's highlights and lowlights is equally as entertaining. "Maryland is a fast-growing state boasting a dynamic economy based on giving speeding tickets to people attempting to drive through." For our convinience, he has even included practical foreign language phrases that had me rolling on the ground (in the middle of school) for at least half a class period each. His step by step advice for planning, taking, and surviving a trip are ludicrously funny, yet seem to touch on everyone's own travel experiences. I have resolved to become an avid reader of Dave Barry's material. I strongly urge everyone to get their hands on some of his work. It'll bring laughter to your life even after you've put it down.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't leave home without it. 30. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Sure, my copy is personally inscribed by the author, "For Maggie, with extreme passion--Dave Barry" (and, as the saying goes, I am not making this up) but I can still be objective. This is a very funny book.
Alas and alack, the passion Mr Barry has is not for me, but for making us laugh. And the humorist does this in grand fashion.
For example, page 142: "Ireland is not a large country. A competing guide book states that "you could drop its entire area into Lake Superior" is very funny to me, a Michigan native familiar with Lake Superior.
Perhaps funnier still is the line: "There is also the Irish people, a warm and friendly lot who are constantly saying things like "Begorrah!" Alcohol will do this to people".
Look, just buy the book. You'll laugh, and maybe, you can have Mr Barry inscribe it to you, with deepest passion, as well.

Dave Barry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist at "The Miami Herald", is again funny and silly. He has managed to touch on all phases of travel such as "planning your trip" to "getting home." In his twisted way, he writes about everything you'll need to know about traveling. The book comes complete with maps(downtown Cairo, downtown Paris, and downtown Ireland are the same), information by state (Florida's State Seal depicts a mosquito carrying a machine gun), and by country (one of Spain's Facts at a Glance is that Spain is closed weekdays). Dave reminds us of the Old Traveler's Saying: "You may lose your money and your health and your sanity and some important organs, but they can't take away your travel memories unless they hit you hard on the head." This book is a good remedy for a bad mood and a great comic take on traveling.
