Library JournalBitten by the travel bug as a young boy, Clinton (publishing director, Hearst Magazines; Wanderlust: One Hundred Countries) has traveled to over 120 countries (he’s aiming for 150) and writes engagingly of his adventures from Antarctica to the North Pole. Whether skiing in Thredbo, Australia, exploring the Namib Desert, hiking in Bhutan, climbing Scotland’s Ben Nevis, or traveling by boat from Vietnam to Cambodia, Clinton embarks on adventures that are often not the usual tourist choices, although he also writes about Paris and Berlin. Interspersed are random bits of advice from Clinton and his globetrotting pals, i.e., always leave time in your itinerary for serendipity and make sure your children carry identification. Clinton also includes a sampling of his own black-and-white travel photographs in this book.
Verdict While most readers don’t have the kind of job and salary that would allow them regularly to mix work and international travel as Clinton does, his enthusiasm will inspire others to travel more often and to more unusual destinations; his heartfelt, breezy narrative will entertain all readers.—Linda M.
