You're in good company...

TRAVEL: The Guide is not really just about travel. It’s about exploding every stereotype, fear, and expectation you have about the rest of the world and your place in it. Once you start flipping through, you’ll be consuming little knowledge bombs like potato chips. Good luck stopping. And good luck seeing things the same way ever again.


Turns on its head just about everything we thought we knew about how to get the best out of our travels, gloriously debunking the myths and exposing the clichés along the way.


Visually stunning and visually unsettling, stuffed with humor and wisdom and remarkable insight, this book will change the way you see the world.


Lansky’s book has all the qualities of a successful trip: It’s eye-opening, unexpected, gorgeous, and pleasurable. Also free from gastrointestinal difficulties.”
