To bribe the police official or not to bribe the police official when arrested for carrying aspirin? This is surely an important question when you intend on travelling to some remote third world country, is it not?! And why do airlines choose to put us all-important paying first class travellers at the front of the aircraft? All is answered in this excellent book.
The book is well detailed with regard to personal protection and procedures, health and safety and world trouble spots, also including information on carrying out a country/destination risk assessment. It provides an eye opening look at the things you should be considering on your worldly travels; preparation, planning, research, Visa's, local law enforcement, medical requirements, etc, etc.
Ultimately the book will open your eyes and give you the opportunity to decide for yourself the level of risk you are willing to accept, be-it enforced by your company or by your budget.
If I was to suggest any negative points, it would be the perhaps occasional spelling mistakes and sometimes slightly difficult to read grammar. The book is also more than 300 pages and not particularly well divided by chapters. However, all this is offset by the wealth of information and background detail, backed up by statistical data, hence a full 5 stars.
An excellent book and highly recommended reading for regular international travellers.
