Reviewed by Sarah Stuart for Readers' Favorite “Traveling to an unknown destination ignites our desire for adventure.” Know Before You Go: Traveling the U.S. and Abroad by Stephanie Tehan Patterson is designed to make those adventures easy to plan and ensure the reader is not the person left trying to cope with an impossible situation which, forearmed, they could have avoided. Also, what to have in place in case the unforeseeable happens and, in the worst case scenario, where to look for help. Know Before You Go is a comprehensive guide to travelling by land, sea, or air, which contains everything you’ve wondered “what if” or “how” about, and even more that you had no idea that you needed to know. Arranged in twenty chapters, each divided into titled sub-sections that enable fast reference, it is invaluable to all, but a must-read for anyone with disabilities, children, or pets. Know Before You Go: Traveling the U.S. and Abroad was written for American citizens so I wondered how useful it might be to a UK reader. Dipping in for references is certainly possible, but I found it a fascinating book from start to finish; so much of it is applicable to all nationalities, from simple tips to previously unseen dangers. Turbulence in the air can cause a plane to drop several hundred feet without warning. Most of us know that, or have experienced it, but have you ever thought about the baby in your lap? Could you hold it or would it be thrown about the cabin like unsecured baggage? It’s a terrifying vision, but there is a very simple answer. Stephanie Tehan Patterson is to be congratulated for providing so much vital information in a reader-friendly style.

We were planning a trip abroad for the first time and wanted to make sure we did not run into any problems. I happened to run across the blog by this author and was impressed by the information provided, so I decided to purchase the book. It is excellent. It is very easy to reference specific topics (and provides additional resources), and it is listed in a quick reference type format (I didn't have to weed through a lot of words to find what I was looking for). It informed me of information that I was not aware of...and am I ever glad for that. Our trip went smoothly...and I credit that in part to us being prepared in advance for what to expect. We even thwarted off a scam artist.
