Superb read!, 26 Jan. 2011
I actually had met Gareth Jones on his travels whilst seeing him jot down notes to his book. Since I knew Gareth, I felt obliged to buy it. To my surprise, this book got me hooked. Apart from the fact that the author is an adrenaline junkie and is always looking for trouble, it actually is a very funny book, just like the author, and gets you thinking. A very suitable book especially if you re about to venture in travelling yourself. Let me call this the "Opposite of Lonely planet". Meaning you should do exactly the opposite of what Gareth has done on his travels, that is if you re after a routine boring experience. The book also has a moral to the story apart from the fact that this book truly puts you in a good mood after reading it.
