Worst Travel book of ALL time

A Listmania! list by Paul Board (Penrith, Cumbria United Kingdom)
 
Clear Waters Rising: A Mountain Walk Across Europe
1.  Clear Waters Rising: A Mountain Walk Across Europe by Nicholas Crane
The list author says:
  "Pretentious and daft book that was more interested in umbrellas and describing how green the grass was. I could read pages and not remember a thing I has just read. Yawn."

Lonely Planet Journeys : Mali Blues Travelling to an African Beat
2.  Lonely Planet Journeys : Mali Blues Travelling to an African Beat by Lieve Joris
The list author says:
  "Massive disappointment. A good character study but barely touched upon the actual region of Mali/Senegal. So much potential but......."

V-a-c-a-t-i-o-n: Cautionary Tales of Travelling without Style
3.  V-a-c-a-t-i-o-n: Cautionary Tales of Travelling without Style by Oliver Gray
The list author says:
  "This man thinks he's funny and has interesting stories to tell. I beg to differ. Flimsy book and flimsy stories."

The Last Pink Bits
4.  The Last Pink Bits by Harry Ritchie
The list author says:
  "An excellent basis for a book but poorly executed. Ritchie had drawn his conclusion before even starting his voyage. Didn't scrape the surface of the actual question."

Border Crossing: On the Road from Peking to Paris
5.  Border Crossing: On the Road from Peking to Paris by Rosie Thomas
The list author says:
  "Seemed to emphasise the fish out of water scenario until I fell asleep and dreamt of suicide. A different author who was less blinkered by gender etc may have made a better job of this."
£15.00   Used & New from: £13.99

A Tall Man in a Low Land : " Some Time Among The Belgians"
6.  A Tall Man in a Low Land : " Some Time Among The Belgians" by Harry Pearson
The list author says:
  "Pearson is definitely a funny man and potentially good writer. But a whole book on Belgium? A WHOLE BOOK!?! Pearson, write about somewhere interesting next time."

Black Earth City: A Year in the Heart of Russia
7.  Black Earth City: A Year in the Heart of Russia by Charlotte Hobson
The list author says:
  "I feel terrible for including this book. But it was frankly tedious. Hobson barely got out of her little town and her experiences didn't merit an entire book. Not in the same league as Jamie Zeppa."

Clear Waters Rising: A Mountain Walk Across Europe
8.  Clear Waters Rising: A Mountain Walk Across Europe by Nicholas Crane
The list author says:
  "This book was so awful it deserves a second mention. One interesting chapter about a Yorkshire woman trapped in Ukraine. That's about it really. The grass was really green though."

Kim Jong Il On The Art of Opera: Talk to Creative Workers in the Field of Art and Literature September 4-6, 1974
9.  Kim Jong Il On The Art of Opera: Talk to Creative Workers in the Field of Art and Literature September 4-6, 1974 by Kim Jong Il
The list author says:
  "A potentially hillarious book let down by the fact that the author actually believes he has something interesting to say, but also has the power to get it published. 1984, eat your heart out......."
