Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Editors McCarthy and George compiled 33 stories about traveling from people in the entertainment industry, including actors, directors, producers, writers, and cinematographers. Some highlight their work experiences, such as Nick Ray's "Behind the Scenes: Filming Tomb Raider at Angkor Wat" where he recalls the beauty and the difficulties of shooting the film in Cambodia. Actress Brooke Shields writes about her trip building igloos in the Arctic for a travel piece in Marie Claire. The most evocative pieces, however, are about family vacations. In "India: A Family Portrait," actress Stephanie March gives a charming account of a slightly dysfunctional vacation with her sister and mother. Actor Anthony Edwards tells of his beautiful and enriching trip around the world in a private plane with his wife and four children, visiting 30 countries in 310 days. In "Islands in the Storm," writer and actor Dan Bucatinsky remembers visiting his partner's family farm in Dublin and watching the attacks on the World Trade Center in a restaurant where he "wanted to drop everything and run the way one does when someone they love is in trouble." Alec Baldwin kicks off the collection with his adorable account of how a lifelong New Yorker begrudgingly learned to love Los Angeles.

    Cover deceiving

    This does not have the names listed on the cover. There is no Johnny Depp for instance. There is more missing as well.

    Disappointing

    Like reading a People magazine; the title promises much more than the prose delivers

    Good in small doses

    This is a good book for people who like to read in small amounts of time. I am more the devour the book type, so I did read it but in small moments. Some stories more interesting than others, and I must admit I never heard of many of the storytellers.

    A Bit Pretentious

    Some of the stories were interesting and well-written, but the majority I found to be pretentious, and not very well-written. Overall, I would not recommend this book unless you have a star-crush on one of the storytellers and just want to read something they wrote.
