Reliable, readable Rough Guides (Conde Nast Traveller)

About the Author

Doug Lansky, a writer and a traveler, has chronicled his travels around the world in his hilarious and vividly descriptive column, "The Vagabond." His travels have included cruising up the Amazon on a cargo ship, living and blowgun hunting with Jaguar Indians in Peru, buying a horse and riding it to Colombia, hitchhiking through Syria and Jordan, where he befriended sergeants in the Iraqi military, riding a camel across the desert in India, and sailing down the Nile. Doug's articles have appeared in "Spy" and "Might" magazines as well as in numerous major U.S. daily newspapers. He is also the co-author of "How to Survive High School with Minimal Brain Damage," published when Doug was just sixteen years old.

I am really happy I bought this - It has all the "basic" information, a lot of good checklists, and also some things I hadn't thought of...
I would recommend it to anyone, but mostly to people that loves to plan their travels. It doesn't really have a lot of info that you can't find on the internet (except the excellent, up-to-date budgets), but I think it is worth the money to have it all together and well-researched for you :)

I am not travelling around the world... yet! but it has some wonderful trips that I never even thought about. The writing style is light and easy to dip in and out of. great for anyone of any age who is going away for a long period of time.

I've found this so useful, from the lists of things to take (you won't have thought of all of it) to the personal testimonials. Also info is easy to find in it's chapters such as 'Packing' or 'Health' & there is a section for each area of the world too naming what there is to do, what to look out for, the best travel when there & what vaccinations are needed. Very handy book! Would recommend.

This is a great, well written book with a lot of fantastic information in, but it is just a little too pricey given the competition. Rough Guides is a trusted source, and they have not failed to deliver here, but they shouldn't let the decline of LP let them rest on their laurels.

We are planning a short 2-3 month trip, this guide is more geared towards more adventurous people who go for an extended period.
Print way too small for me.
