Over the past few years, since the growth of adventure travel, more and more people are journeying to remote and potentially dangerous environments with little preparation or knowledge. There is an increasing level of violence and terrorist acts against tourists and western business travellers in the new, emerging but difficult Third World markets. This is a travel security guide intended for the tourist, business traveller and ex-patriot. It covers hot spots of the world, risk analysis, surviving hotel fires, security at airports, travel and health, anti-kidnap procedures, hostage survival, crisis planning, evacuation and security on the street.

Format: Paperback
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.

This book is good - it has lots of useful information. Please don't be put off by the relatively poor layout and spelling miastakes. You are buying the guy's expertise in security and that's why the book is worth getting.

Outstanding! 13 Jun 2007
By L. A. Kane - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of the few books specifically written for travelers, this is an outstanding resource. It covers everything from risk analysis to travel and health, surviving hotel fires, hotspots of the world, hostage survival and anti-kidnap procedures, crisis planning and evacuation, and a whole lot more. Personal, hotel, airport, expatriate, and road travel security are described in a clear and concise manner. A wonderful resource!
