Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you worry about the big old dangerous world out there and dare not venture far from home, just in case you meet some terrible disaster - fear no more for someone has written a book especially for you.
Clear instructions are given, with the help of diagrams, where appropriate, for such hazardous pitfalls as how to kiss foreigners ( rub cheeks, a quick mwah or full-on lip engagement?); getting stuck in quicksand; eat with chopsticks; perform a quick tracheotomy; avoid sunburn/stroke etc etc. All advice is delivered with good humour and the content of this book is does have a valuable purpose.
This hardback book is rather weighty and therefore not something I would wish to take on my travels, nonetheless it makes for a superb gift.
