"Mr. Lansky's new book, The Titanic Awards: Celebrating the Worst of Travel (Perigee Trade) is dedicated 'to all the travelers who overcame annoyances and obstacles to make it to their destinations, and then willingly decided to set out traveling again.' Hey, that's us! And as business travel begins to rebound after a long slump, it's perhaps useful to be reminded that on the road, 'something invariably goes wrong,' as Mr. Lansky says. 'At times, very wrong.'."
-The New York Times
"...Doug Lansky has an innate knack for zeroing in on the strangely humorous... When you think your trip isn't going, just remember: You could be checking into the Resist Bacteria Hotel in Singapore."
"...Details some of the misadventures that make your recent misadventure (and you know you have one) seem like a walk inn the park."
"So out of respect for all those who wouldn't guess from the title, here's a spoiler alert about Doug Lansky's new book, The Titanic Awards: Things go wrong. More precisely, the book is all about things going wrong or things being wrong. That's the point: It's always more interesting that way."
"A lively compendium of ineptitude, turpitude, and just bizarre behavior that would be even funnier if it weren't so depressingly familiar."
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.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
