    Very Good Info for those who aren't Jaded....

    This book has some truly good information for those who are new to the compulsory business travel world, or who simply see themselves as beginning a period of frequent leisure travel. Perhaps some of the knowledge seems "simple" or "obvious" to those who have logged voluminous airline miles, and have previously gleaned the information through trial and error. I would dare say though, that for every person who already knows the true "Ins-and-Outs" of the travel world, there are 10 who do not! This book is for them (us). Forget the School of Hard Knocks, travelers, the author provides the answers to the quizzes in advance. I'll be getting my "A" in Airline travel without the previously pre-requisite semesters of overpaying, line-standing, and teeth nashing. Hurray for The Travel Detective.

    A Must Read for Travelers

    I found this book very informative and entertaining. I suggest all travelers, beginner and experienced, to read this book. It helps you get bargains and tips you on how not to avoid those airline annoyances in an easy conversational manner. In a word, 'Great!'

    if i could give less stars i would!!!

    I am an avid traveler, done so for almost a decade. The methods to gain bargains were broad and ineffective in my opinion. Maybe better next time.

    Change the title to 'For Brand New Travelers'

    Only if you have never traveled would this book be of any use. The material could have easily fit into a magazine article. If I thumbed this at a book store I would not have purchased it.

    Not much new in this book

    There is not much new in this book. The meat of the text could easily have been writtn in 20 pages. The book is almost 400 pages of the author's stories. I would not buy this book if I would have looked throught it first.

    read it before you plan your next trip

    the best part is that the author doesn't say which website or airline to choose for a cheap fare -- instead he tells you what strategies to use to save money no matter where you buy the ticket. there is so much good advice in this book, and lots of stories about what goes on that travelers never hear about.
