    Not your typical travel book

    A travel book for the rest of us, How to Go Almost Anywhere for Almost Nothing is a genuine 'how to' guide to travel the world--yes, you. Better yet, it shows how to see the soul of places, not the tourist traps. (If you want glitz, ALSO buy one of those destination-specific travel guides.) The book is divided into three sections. The first part is the best. Memorize it. That¿s where you¿ll find the real tricks of travel, such as how to fly as low as. . .well, free. Room and board can be as low as $10 a night, and also free, sometimes. What can I say, this book delivers! There are also hints to avoid scams. The second part of the book is written letter-style, in which you 'accompany' the author as you read, with anticipation for each succeeding adventure. The third part gives great advice on packing, monetary matters, security, and even what to do if you get sick mid-trip. Packed with specifics, but written with a warm and light touch, this book made this guy who has hardly ever left the city limits want to go Almost Everywhere, Almost Now¿and believe that I can. Now, that¿s really saying something.

    Best Budget Travel Guide Ever

    How To Go Almost Anywhere For Almost Nothing is the most comprehensive book on budget travel ever written. The author does an excellent job covering every aspect of low cost travel. The information included in this delightful book gives confidence to even the most timid travelers. I especially enjoyed learning about the author's personal experiences while traveling. It made me feel personally acquainted with each destination. I was most impressed with the incredible amount of research that went into this book. Having traveled some myself I know how expensive and disappointing travel packages can be. I would recommend this book as a constant companion to anyone who travels. It is packed with valuable information on lodging, dinning, shopping and getting there. I found the section on 'tips for budget travelers' especially helpful. It covers topics like monetary issues, safety and what to in case of an illness. I am convinced this book will transform my future traveling experiences.
