English is very poor, repetitive phrasing used every other page.
Fair play - English is not the authors native tongue but he could at least have made more than schoolboy effort or used a competent translator.
I've been in SE Asia over 20 years - 8 years as a derivatives trader. I was highly amused by our hero venturing into the stock market betting with pennies (cents).
And a further 12 years in the hotel & nightclub business.
I have met 100's of similar men over time taking advantage of prostitutes - offering beer or drugs for services etc. Not classy but hey that must be the way Rock Stars roll.
Some very lame confrontations. Trust me in Thailand, PI, Vietnam or Cambodia you get stuck in hard and first - never mind the consequences. Well... Alpha (normal) males who want to keep face do.
The author admitting he can never go back to Cambodia on fear of death. Not explained fully, but not hard to imagine why.
Making a move on a girl who lost $800 worth of electronics in his hotel was a "good decision". Also not explained.
That's pretty much the first 200 pages.
The pick up tips .... REMEMBER
Button down shirts are hip and a necklace is interesting - really?
Looking clean is important - hmm not exactly a revelation (to Englishmen anyway).
When in a disco, wear "black clubbing shoes" - Pacha, Ibiza can learn from this dude
GOLDEN ADVICE Neil, you've got this game by the scruff of the neck.
Probably a good guide to scrounging sofas to sleep on, letting ANYONE pay (except yourself), and operating the wrong way in poor countries - but in the real world its about self respect.
However it could have been cut shorter by removing some aspects of the book, the small nuggets of historical information disjointed the story. Also in several parts it repeats stories we have already heard, how bad is my memory that I can't remember 2-3 chapters ago?
This book isn't the boastful tales of a would-be casanova, but a candid account of a man trying to find himself while having a great time in the process. He's as quick to share his insecurities as he is his sexual conquests.
I was fortunate enough to be travelling when I read this, but if I wasn't, it would have been a strong kick in the butt to get out there and see the world.
