Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Doug Lansky, a writer and a traveler, has chronicled his travels around the world in his hilarious and vividly descriptive column, "The Vagabond." His travels have included cruising up the Amazon on a cargo ship, living and blowgun hunting with Jaguar Indians in Peru, buying a horse and riding it to Colombia, hitchhiking through Syria and Jordan, where he befriended sergeants in the Iraqi military, riding a camel across the desert in India, and sailing down the Nile. Doug's articles have appeared in "Spy" and "Might" magazines as well as in numerous major U.S. daily newspapers. He is also the co-author of "How to Survive High School with Minimal Brain Damage," published when Doug was just sixteen years old.

Interesting for readers who appreciate different culture and diversity, you will gain so much insight even without travelling!!!
A lot of the information is very practical. I'm glad we got the book because it has started some good discussions there are some useful lists of things to bring or not bring, and see, and be careful about, and so on.
If you're on a tight budget and you're planning to pinch pennies everywhere you can, you'll like this book a little better than I did. My husband and I are not rich or anything, but we are planning to rent houses and cars in each of the cities that we visit...so the ongoing focus on saving money is sometimes interesting, but not as useful for us as it would be for some other people. Also, things that would be more interesting to us, such as topics related to everyday living--how to choose houses or cars or doctors, etc, are totally absent. When I read the part about not bringing jeans because they're too heavy, my husband actually laughed. We're not going to be living out of backpacks, and he wouldn't even consider leaving jeans behind.
I can't honestly say we're really doing anything different because of this book, at least so far. The information about places is general enough to be interesting, but not specific enough to eliminate the need for other research.
So, overall, a fun book for getting excited about travel, with a whole lot of information that may or may not be very useful to you, depending on what you're looking for. Even though we didn't feel like this was written for us, we have enjoyed reading it together, and I will continue to look back to it for ideas as we continue to prepare. I haven't decided whether it will come along with us.
UPDATE 3/13/2015: We did end up bringing this book along with us, and we used it occasionally as we were planning where to go next. During our travels, the sections about places were more useful than the beginning parts. I finally quit carrying it with us when we stopped off in the US for a visit after a year or so of traveling.
