A few early reviews:

"If you think all guidebooks are the same, you're mistaken. Weird and Wonderful Korea tosses out the window what most guidebooks tell you to see. What's inside are easy to follow itineraries showing the more interesting side of Korea. If you're looking for something new to see and do, this is your ticket to adventure."

-- Steve Miller, travel vlogger,

"Chris Backe has put his time in Korea to great use traveling, exploring and learning. It's great to hear that he's put all of his knowledge into a comprehensive volume about the country."

-- Steven Revere, editor, 10 Magazine

"This gem by Chris Backe will take you far off the beaten track and show you a side of Korea that most Koreans don't even get to see. Keep this book at your side in Korea to enjoy a wider spectrum of the Korean travel experience."

-- Steven S. Bammel, creator, Korea Business Central

"Korea might be diminutive in size, but it doesn't lack for the colorful and offbeat. Chris does an outstanding job of getting off the beaten track to explore Korea's more unconventional side, and an even better job making that side accessible to travelers."

-- Robert Koehler, author, KOREA and SEOUL, and editor of Seoul Selection
