Im sure its not designed as a cover to cover read, but I'd say anyone considering a tour whether a weekend jaunt or worldwide epic needs to read this book. I found myself nodding along to familiar concepts and experiences as many times as I reflected on ideas new to me. Andrew & Friedel Grant draw on their own broad experience as well as that of others to write a truly comprehensive manual that'll guide the reader from beginner's basics through to how to survive in the wilder corners of the globe.
If you haven't got the patience to read it all in one go, or prefer to use it as a reference you can download it to your smart phone or netbook and take it along on tour for ready reference.
In my local bike shop five quid will buy a tiny bell, a very unfashionable hat, a couple of energy bars, or a magazine about jumping off bus shelter roofs on bikes with no saddles. I think a fiver spent on this book could well be a better buy!
A wealth of experience is crammed in here, little in the way of extraneous filler and the information is of a kind that is sure to save you at least once on a trip.
Whether you are on a mini staycation or a global tour for life there are likely to be the odd hiccup to the downright disaster, but with this book to hand you can head most of it off, but if it does happen then the guides and hints in here will get you going again.
Absolute gem of a book, now on my Kindle for future reference.
