    The author uses humor to impart practical air travel advice. A fun read, but not just humor.

    From a FA also

    I got this book as a gift, and I thought 'oh no!!' However, it was a wonderful suprise!! I was laughing so much. And trust me, I do this job, and I can relate to all of the author's stories. I've seen, experienced, heard them (1 way or another). I just wish she wasn't so moody. I have a easy going personality, but I understand that sometimes people can drive you crazy with some questions (Is this your natural hair color?). Great book noneless.

    I was expecting something really funny such as the book, Coffee, Tea or Me. This book is not funny. It is about the frustrations of the author's life.

    From One Who Knows & Still Laughs

    "Around the World" doesn't attempt to change air travel but it does help to laugh when we find ourselves in the bad situations she accurately describes. To assume from this book that all flight attendants hate their jobs and dislike their passengers would be a long and unjust leap. From first hand-experience, I know this job has its good and bad days, just like any job. But I take pride in my work as a safety, customer service and medical professional. And I enjoy making a passenger's journey a bit more pleasant, even if it's just a smile and friendly greeting or a sympathetic ear. Foss likes lists - airline terminology, everything she knows about life, passenger personality types as determined by their trash output, wrongdoings of flight attendants. Most of the lists are effectively funny. But the dialogue and songs taken from the musical revue of the same name don't read as well on a written page as when performed live on a stage. This quick read is a jaded view from someone frustrated with her career. How many of us haven't been frustrated some days? But she doesn't claim to represent all of us. I did enjoy her take on life with an airline and it made me laugh.
