Don't Bang Denmark: How To Sleep With Danish Women In Denmark (If You Must)
Don't Bang Denmark: How To Sleep With Danish Women In Denmark (If You Must)

1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly bitter and negative!, 7 Feb. 2013
What a depressing and negative book!

The author had a couple of bad experiences and he has set out on a quest to put down an entire nation because of it. I totally understand why his Danish mate, Henrik, dropped him after a few weeks. I wouldn't be able to stand the author's attitude of superiority either.

Throughout the book the author indulges in his bitterness and lack of factual knowledge. Please read if you want to feel down and angry. Avoid if you are curious about other cultures and like to experience things with an open mind.


Iranian Rappers and Persian Porn: A Hitchhiker's Adventures in the New Iran

3.0 out of 5 stars Easily read, 23 April 2011
If you can look past Jamie Maslin's swearing, bad manners, lack of cultural knowledge and feelings of superiority, you can learn a bit about Iran and persian everyday life from Maslin's adventures traveling around the country. It is not terribly well-written but he gets the point across. However, if you wish to know more about Iranian everyday life, I recommend the books by Azadeh Moaveni (Lipstick Jihad and Honeymoon in Tehran). If you cannot stand lager louts and cringe when they show off their ignorance, this book is not for you as it is written by one. Sorry, but that is the way it is.

59 Seconds: Think a little, change a lot

5.0 out of 5 stars Think a lot - change the right things!, 29 Jun. 2010
This book doesn't pretend to be a self-help book, but Richard Wiseman has created the ultimate guide to scientifically proven techniques that will make you happier, help you achieve your goals and succeed in relationships.

The book is easily read but the topics stays with you for a long while. You don't have to read the chapters chronologically, well you don't even have to read them all, so this is the book for casual reading (but heavy thinking).

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A look into human nature, 9 May 2010
This book takes a look into the human nature, not only of the victims of Stalin's purges in the 1930s but also into the leaders of communism. Luckily the books isn't very descriptive when it comes to the cannibalistic acts which took place on several occasions. More interesting is the failure of both the Tomsk administration and the party leadership which is thoroughly described and analyzed. A book to be recommended to anyone slightly interested in the history of the Soviet Union and the effects on modernday Russia.


Trans-Siberian Handbook (Trailblazer)
Trans-Siberian Handbook (Trailblazer)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just one word: ESSENTIAL, 9 May 2010
If you only have room for one book in your bag on your Trans-Siberian travel, take this one!

The book is packed with useful information about the trains, where to buy tickets and how, what to expect from days and days of train travel through Russia - and almost best of all there is an introduction to every single little village or landmark that you pass on your way. Every description is garnished with the kilometre mark so you can keep an eye out for crossing the Volga, the obelisk on the border between Europe and Asia and the many other interesting sights along the way.

We hardly took our Lonely Planet guide out of the bag during our six week long travel from Moscow to Vladivostok and back again, but the Trailblazer guide was used every single day. Our only regret was not buying the Trailblazer guide to BAM before riding that part of the railway.

Whatever you do don't leave home without this book, if you are about to embark on the Trans-Siberian Railway!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for first time visitors, 9 May 2010
This little book is a great introduction to Russian culture, tradition and society for first time visitors. It sums up the dos and don'ts and drops funny little anecdotes here and there. It is based on stereotypes as you would expect but nevertheless very entertaining and easily read.


The Road Of Lost Innocence
The Road Of Lost Innocence
by Somaly Mam
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing but necessary reading, 9 May 2010
Somaly Mam is an amazing woman, and she has written an amazing book. An utterly disturbing and haunting book which tells her own life story as well as focuses on the factors in Cambodia and its neighbouring countries which allow the exploitation, rape, forced prostitution and slavery of women and girls. It is a horrific story but Somaly Mam tells it in gentle terms but also with a certain natural distance. Her ability to overcome the terrible things that were done to her during her childhood and youth is almost as impressive as her present struggle against the corrupt police and central administration in Cambodia.

The situation in Cambodia today is even worse than when Somaly Mam was growing up, so her fight for freedom and respect for the young girls and women held in giant brothels has never been more relevant. Read this book before going on holiday in Cambodia, Thailand or Vietnam!
