Kurzbeschreibung

1. Mai 2002
A travel guide with a difference, this title introduces a world where you are more likely to find a cockroach on your pillow than a complimentary mint, where you take your life in your own hands every time you get on a bus, where everything goes wrong, and you still end up loving every minute of it. Instead of practical hints, it gives you impractical ones (how to avoid jet lag - avoid jets) and rather than tell you the best places to stay, it tells you the worst. Instead of celebrating transcendental travel experiences, it revels in the most demeaning ones (on checking the hygiene in restaurants: there are two things you don't really want to see in life. The first is your parents having sex. The second is the state of the kitchen in restaurants catering for backpackers). But in that sense "No Shitting In The Toilet" is more in touch with the way things really are.

Pressestimmen

"'Peter Moore is the genuine article, a traveller's traveller'" (FHM)

"'This infinitely handy, irreverent bullet-pointed code of conduct (and misconduct) abroad revels in a kind of anti-Wish You Were Here ethos. Expect the worse, then turn to this to find ideas, answers and, best of all, comfort in the sod's law of holiday-going'" (The Scotsman)

"'Seasoned travellers will find plenty to relate to in this witty and observant book, especially the gentle dig at some of the more conventional guides'" (Lancashire Evening Post)

"'It's not a run-of-the-mill travel book, oh no, but a book no traveller can do without'" (Virginstudent.com)

"'Definitely a book to take with you as an accompaniment to a detailed travel guide, or even better, a humorous reminder of your trip when you get back home...well worth a read' " (Outland Website) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen The travel guide for when you've really lost it ... 30. März 2003
Von Manuelita
Format:Taschenbuch
With chapters like "Visas, Eating, Drinking, Money, Sleeping, ..." this book looks like a rather normal travel guide. Indeed, it does contain quite a few good recommendations, but it really is different from any other travel guide! The author tells you what you should NOT do, referring to his own experiences as a backpacker. You will laugh out loud at some of the situations because you probably have experienced just the same ... You don't have to read this book from beginning to end, just open it up on any page and have a read - it'll make your day :-)
Being an Aussie Peter Moore sometimes likes to make fun of the Americans he has encountered on his travels ... a pleasure to read ;-)
This book is the ideal gift for anyone who likes to travel, or who has travelled a lot.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mäßig lustig 16. Februar 2014
Von J aus S
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch hat beim Lesen einige Erinnerungen geweckt und auch Lust gemacht, den Rucksack zu packen und zu verreisen. Abgesehen davon ist das Buch ab und an ganz lustig, hat aber auch seine Längen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Never have I read a book this quick 5. Juni 2003
Von Danny Chang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Sarcastic, hilarious but at times practical peice of work. Some of Moore's findings provided warning/tips during my own trips. Others stirred up my curiousity and provided ideas/reasons to visit the places I've never been interested before. Hard to stop once you start reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Even the Stewardess was Laughing... 14. Juli 2004
Von Jeff D Opdyke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I picked this up in Heathrow on the way back from a week in southwestern Siberia, a hellhole of a place, and this book was so on target with all the random idiocy and kindness and suspicion and just plan wonderment you stumble into once you leave the main thoroughfares trough London, Tokyo and Sydney and find yourself in way-out-of-the-way places and situations you could never imagine--until that very moment. Read it on the flight from Heathrow and my laughing prompted the stewardess to read a few pages. She had tears in her eyes from laughing so hard.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The title says it all 8. Mai 2003
Von Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I discovered Peter Moore's books while travelling in Australia earlier this year and have been searching for the rest of the collection since returning to the US. It is fantastic that we can finally get at least one of his titles here in the States. NSITT is a hysterical account of all the horrible things that can happen to you while traveling and that ultimately make your trip worthwhile and memorable. It is an absolute must-read for the travel junkie (and/or for the travel literature junkie). The style is such that you can open the book to any page, read a top ten list, and then rush to your computer to scour the internet for a ticket to anywhere promising uncertain adventure. Or you may be grateful that you are safe at home, dysentary free, and living vacariously via someone's else's fortune (misfortune?). Either way, this book will leave you in stiches.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 15. Januar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I must say, I was intrigued by the title and ready to read some fantastic accounts of a veteran traveller to exotic, unexplored places...but it reads more like a series of "Top Ten lists" saying, "this is so crazy", "this is so dirty"! Really not recommended for anyone who has lived abroad, or had experience in other countries. More for college kids who want to spend a summer or year after their studies hanging out with other ex-pats in tourisy places, saying, "Wow man, things are really cheap in Thailand!"

4.0 von 5 Sternen Novelty Idea. But tends to overdo it and lose the point. 25. Dezember 2004
Von Observer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I first saw this book while waiting for a flight to go travelling again. I had a brief look through it and immediately recognized many of the things that i have experienced from independent travel. The book really is very insightfull and pulls no punches. I applaud him for being honest and speaking the unspeakable. There are plenty of backpackers out there who dont want you to know about the grizzly mundane side of travel. And Peter rumbles their little game. But in being so honest, that's where this book's danger lies. It could bring you to travel, or send you running away from the idea in horror. The humour is often hilarious, but at other times overplays it,or hides behind humour to be bitterly sarcastic about cultures or countries he perhaps did'nt enjoy. At one stage you just start to feel that Peter is adoring how funny he can be, and steps it up for the sake of effect. The book itself is well layed out, and very easy to read. But perhaps lacking in content for your money?, given the price of the book. I read it in half a day and felt i'd payed far too much for it. Later on, you see the original point of the book has run out of steam,and just cops out in favour of "Top 10 <enter subject here>" lists.

Much of the later parts of the book seem like filler. Everybody likes Top 10 lists, and i think Peter played on that to fill out where he'd trailed off from the point of the book. It's a shame because it does seems quite promising at times, delving with great comic insight into the real hopes and sometimes delusions of budget travellers. It suddenly seems to move away from that subject later on, in favour of being funny with Top 10 lists and his personal memories. That's where it loses it's original edge. They say that you cannot have the pleasure without the pain. Peter describes the pain very well. But he does'nt talk about the pleasure, which is the reward for all those trials. He briefly mentions that at the start. But makes it sound like it's just a kind of maschochism that some travellers thrive on, and that is what keeps him travelling. Rather than you being rewarded with something much deeper for the trials you sometimes face along the way. I think it is very easy to make it sound as though you dont feel anything more higher than the mundane,when you travel.

So in that sense, i think Peter tried to portray himself as "Just an ordinary Bloke" a bit too much. He must have felt more than that, to have travelled so much. But he tries to deny it with "down to earth Aussie humour". I've travelled independently on a budget in about 22 countries now. So i can recognize much that goes on in the book. But i also know that Peter must have experienced the romance and deep feelings that travel can bring. That's the other side to travel which is'nt touched upon in this book. Aussie humour always tries to knock romance off it's perch and "Be one of the Lads". Ever macho and down to earth,it fears being seen as possibly affected by deeper emotions of travel. And in that way, at times i felt Peter was scared to perhaps tell both sides of the travelling story?,for fear of being seen as "A bloody Poof" (insert Aussie accent here). But the romance of travel is the other side of the coin, and it exists.
