[A]bsorbing in its breadth, compassion and economy...tales of massacres and poverty, brutality and courage leave you drained - and awed... (Guardian)
They are as captivating on the page as they are on air... the accounts are impressively up-to-date...absorbing. (The Observer)
These personal morsels, with no hint of condesension, hold more insight into cultures and histories than many textbooks. This absorbing read invites the reader to understand a little more about the world out there. (Hannah James Real Travel 2008-07-01)

There are just under a hundred articles in all, with no clear theme to how they are arranged - this is a great strength, though, because there is such variety and in a few pages you might be reading about Chernobyl in the Ukraine 20 years after the nuclear meltdown, a Maoist wedding in Nepal, and obesity (or the lack of it) in France. This is a great improvement on the first volume in this series, in which the articles were arranged geographically by continent. I know I could have just dotted about in the book but I hate doing that so I ended up reading 30 articles about Africa back-to-back and it felt like a chore, so this is a great improvement.
This is a truly excellent book and if you have any interest in the world about you or in humanity then you will find plenty to enjoy in it.
