Report From Practically Nowhere is an account of 13 no-account countries, from Athos to Amb, from Sark to Swat.

Report From Practically Nowhere is an authoritative assessment of 13 of the most unimportant nations on the face of the earth. To achieve this milestone of journalism, John Sack traveled on innumerable planes, boats, trains, buses and one "bus", on the London tube, by mule back and by tonga, all the way from Lundy in the Bristol Channel to Sikkim on the borders of Tibet. The amazing fact is that all these countries exist. In adding not one word to the truth except his own relish and wit, John Sack has produced a wonderfully comic book.

"A book one eagerly reads out loud with considerable delight." (Newsweek)

Author Biography: John Sack is the only person who was a war correspondent in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Yugoslavia—every American war for the past 50 years. In every one, he went from camp-to-combat with the GIs, writing four books and many articles for Esquire, Harper�s and The New Yorker.
