Pressestimmen

Praise for Whatever You Do, Don't Run:
 
"Allison's infectious enthusiasm for both the African bush and his job showing its wonders to tourists is readily apparent." --Booklist
 
"His misadventures make Whatever You Do, Don't Run an absorbing read. . . . The material is rich, and Allison is a gifted storyteller. And the only thing stranger than African fiction is African truth." --National Geographic Adventure
 
"After reading this entrancing memoir, an African safari may move to No. 1 on your travel wish list. The only catch is you'll want the author as your guide." --Chicago Sun-Times
 
Praise for Don't Look Behind You:
 

"The best compliment you can pay a travel writer is to read his work and feel like you're right there with him. For more than two hundred pages, I felt like I was in Africa, up to my neck in danger. I don't even know this guy, but more than once I lay awake at night, worrying for his safety. Enough adventure, action, life lessons, and laughs to fill a movie and four sequels. The fact that Allison survived to write any of this down is a miracle in itself." --Cash Peters, author of Naked in Dangerous Places and Gullible's Travels

“The best compliment you can pay a travel writer is to read his work and feel like you’re right there with him. For more than two hundred pages, I felt like I was in Africa, up to my neck in danger. I don’t even know this guy, but more than once I lay awake at night, worrying for his safety. Enough adventure, action, life lessons, and laughs to fill a movie and four sequels. The fact that Allison survived to write any of this down is a miracle in itself.”
―Cash Peters, author of Naked in Dangerous Places and Gullible’s Travels
Romantic notions aside, being a safari guide isn’t always particularly glamorous. Quite often it is beset with challenges, like having to spend a night in a thorn tree with marauding hyenas below. But safari guide Peter Allison lives for such moments. Here, the author of the widely praised Whatever You Do, Don’t Run details his time spent in safari camps not only in Botswana but also in South Africa, Mozambique, and Namibia―places he loves, despite how much it feels like they just might be trying to kill him.

In Don’t Look Behind You, Allison recounts adventures few would live to tell. Like the time he and a group of bored guides launched a makeshift raft into a foaming river teeming with hippos and crocodiles. Or the afternoon he heard monkeys telling him that a leopard was walking around the camp, and then realized the leopard was in his tent, with him in it.

Join Peter Allison for another riveting, rollicking, behind-the-scenes dose of everyone’s dream experience―going on safari―and come through amazed but, thankfully, without a scratch.

A trip through the lesser lights but still fun reading. 7. Oktober 2009
Von Paul Lawrence - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The sequel to Peter Allisons' first book `Whatever You Do, Don't Run', this release sees him reliving more of his adventures as a safari guide working in sub-Saharan Africa.

The first book was a laugh riot, really a page turner that had you chuckling at some combination of tourists and animals - surely a sure fire recipe for disaster if ever there was one - or the foolish escapades of the author and his sometimes equally manic co-workers. On top of that it showed a glimpse of the essentially somewhat lonely and dull life of the safari guide occupation in their remote locations existing away from so many of the creature comforts so many of us take for granted.

The reason that book was five stars and this is only four stars is that this is more full of encounters with wildlife that aren't exactly funny even if they be entertaining and given the hilarity of the first book was its main drawcard the fact there isn't as much of it here is a tiny let down. Also the remoteness of the occupation is delved into a tiny bit more here and this makes the book more of a dense read if you take my meaning, not to mention the fact that understandably enough Allison has used his best stories in his first book leaving him with less rib tickling moments to regale is with this time around.

Having said that I still found this book a page turner and that is coming from someone with no real interest in African travel. So if that is your particular weakness travel-wise perhaps you'll give this book five stars as well. It's definitely a good gift for any travel maniac in your inner circle.

A Fantastic Book! 2. September 2009
Von Myra Kopinski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Don't Look Behind You!" is a purchase you won't regret. This is definitely the most enjoyable book I have read in a long time and is great to read when traveling. The stories are fairly short, so you are able to stop and continue easily. However, I found it very difficult to stop reading any of these amusing stories.

If you haven't already, I recommend you read the first book, "Whatever You Do, Don't Run".

Fun Adventures 28. Dezember 2009
Von Rebecca C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this book, he is a great writer and makes you feel as if you're right there in Africa - if not, you'll certainy feel like going after reading these amazing tales of escape, hysteria and several unfortunate (yet highly exciting) events!

Don't Look Behind You or anywhere else! Just pick up this book and also grab Whatever You Do Don't Run next to it on the shelf! 18. April 2010
Von James N Simpson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is Peter Allison's second collection of stories from his time in Africa as a guide, camp manager and unique to this one, when he was before the Botswanian Courts for operating without a guide licence. This isn't a sequel to Whatever You Do, Don't Run it is simply different collection of tales to the ones Peter told is in that first collection. These stories don't happen time wise after the ones in that book, they are from his entire career in Africa, like with Whatever You Do, some of these stories occur in South Africa, some in Botswana and there's even some entries from Mozambique and Namibia as well.

This isn't one of those average encore books sold on the success of the first but not in the same league where all the good stories were in the first one. There are great stories in this book too, the only difference being a bit higher percentage of them revolve around his experiences in Africa outside of just the wildlife encounters. Such as being arrested while on Safari and the subsequent dealings with the various Botswanian law enforcement and court officials as well as getting lost driving to a few destinations including a remote baboon research facility where the researchers had gone a bit insane. There's still plenty of wildlife encounters including a leopard entering his sleeping quarters while he was reading a book, and an elephant who wasn't impressed with him trying to pull a hair from its tail.

Great fun 31. August 2009
Von B. Kipper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Allison's book allows the reader to escape back to the bush. He is an engaging writer who captures the bush's ever present the smells and sounds and then adds the drama of the "once in a lifetime" wildlife encounter. Especially in his description of a prolonged chase by an enraged female elephant the reader comes away thinking "Gee I'm glad I got to read about that but not so sure I would have liked the first hand experience!" "Don't Look Behind You" is a marvelous book .
