    Product Description

    One of the greatest shows on earth is Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. If you have not gone, I would encourage you to go. If you have gone, then you probably are going again or have gone multiple times. Whatever the case, there are many ways to do carnival and in all of those ways, there are many ways to do it completely wrong. This particular guide was constructed to provide the carnival veteran with an addition of options and as a tool to provide to carnival first-timers, which are called "carnival virgins." This guide was also created to give Carnival Virgins a great amount of advice about the things that you must do and need to do in order to stay on "Pace."

    And even though this book was written with Trinidad Carnival in mind, it can most certainly serve as a great guide for any carnival that you attend. I don't know about you, but I enjoy being over-prepared and not overwhelmed. This book will serve you well and ensure that you are very prepared for carnival.

    This book was reviewed by over 30 carnival veterans and they have all admitted and agreed that they will no longer write long emails and explain every nook and cranny of carnival to the virgins that travel with them in the future. They said they will simply send them to this book and only converse with them after they have read it and use it as a framework for their discussions.

    The advice here is beyond solid and is not something that was made up. I got the real information from individuals who are a lot more seasoned than myself and made sure that the advice was and is beyond SOLID!

    The core of this text addresses a phenomenon called "pace." Pace and pacing yourself is the most solid piece of advice you can receive before carnival, but if it is not truly explained to you, you will not understand the many facets of pace and how pregnant the term it. Well, it is explained in this text and throughout this book.

    "Pacing" oneself during carnival is crucial to a successful carnival but it does not start at carnival. It begins way before that. This book will aid you in staying on pace, getting proper housing, knowing where to stay, knowing what fetes to attend and even what music you should listen to and why.

    We cover everything from what you should have in your suitcase and when you should pack and why!!

    A trip to carnival is definitely not cheap. It is a pretty serious investment. And all I can tell you is this, "Investing a few bucks to do carnival right and to make sure you to it right is an intelligent investment." Nobody KNOWS everything and during the construction of this book, I learned a few things myself -- and I'm a veteran.

    Enjoy and remember...... PACE!

    5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to do more than just survive Carnival, this is a must Read! 24 July 2014

    Raise your hand if you are a Virgin!!!
    Looks around and slowly raises hand.
    Most of my friends have gone and plan to go again next year. I was shocked but not surprised to see the amount of planning that SHOULD be done to properly enjoy yourself.

    Its late July, I better step my game up if I plan to attend. Forget that whole summer body is made in the winter crap, I need to be working on my winter body, NOW...

    That packing list is official!

    Super interesting for the Carnival virgin like me who's always been intimidated by the idea of going. As a sucker for lists, I found the resource and packing lists particularly helpful!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Ferguson has done an EXCELLENT job capturing the Essence of Trinidad Carnival Prep 23 July 2014

    It's been 12 years since my first Carnival, and there is still NOTHING on earth that can top the experience. NOTHING. #realTalk. This book was a very quick read and was DEAD ON. It took about 30-45 minutes to finish it off while doing cardio at the gym. I was laughing SO HARD I almost fell off of the treadmill.

    Dr. Rhadi has done an EXCELLENT job of capturing the essence of the greatest show on earth and the greatest experience on this side of heaven. If you have EVER been to a Carnival, ever WANT to go to a Carnival, love Soca, hate Soca, or are wondering why we are all so "brainwashed", this is a MUST READ. If you are serious about trying to go one day, save yourself (and the veteran who has to babysit you) the headache and read this book BEFORE you make that decision.

    I WISH that this book would've been out there for me back when I first started. The reference lists, budget breakdown, sample packing lists, and tips are PRICELESS. I've read the book 3 times already. Going forward, anyone who asks to go to Carnival with me will have to purchase this book IMMEDIATELY (and READ IT) before I will acknowledge the request. It's THAT good, THAT true, and THAT important. So download a copy, grab a seat, and read it on your lunch break. $9.99 is NOTHING. Believe us...Wow. Wow. Wow. #claps #snaps #headnods

    WOW!!! If you are even thinking about doing one of the major carnival's this book is a MUST!!! It is truly written with the beginner in mind AND will save you TONS of TIME AND MONEY on the front end. Trust me on this. I'm a Veteran and it took me YEARS and LOTS of wasted time and money to learn the info Dr. Ferguson has compiled in this book. I was lucky and got it during the FREE download period but I am making this REQUIRED READING for anyone that tells me that they want to come with me to do a Carnival. If they balk at the $9.99 cost then I already KNOW they are NOT READY!!!!
