You will still desperately need this book Learn how to avoid being chased by irate settlers with M-16s in Palestine; to stay clear of crowds of more than one million in Mecca; why you should always bring a flashlight to Kabul; and why it's important to bring your flak jacket to Baghdad. "For some, Jane Stillwater might be an acquired taste," stated reviewer S.R Thornton. "She has a gift for skewering the pompous with a phrase, of unabashedly pointing out which emperors lack clothes. She writes from a personal perspective and the chronicle of her overseas odysseys read like a combination of Mark Twain and Jack Kerouac. This book is] for the seriously open-minded who enjoy a good chortle.
