Overview

A Perfect Combination of Humor and Information for Travelers of all Types

If you are one of the nearly eight hundred million passengers who struggle to remain sane in the insane world of air travel each year, this book is for you. Jeff Michaels offers his off-kilter observations on everything from earplugs and SkyMall shopping to air marshals and overbooked flights, along with practical tips on how to improve the flying experience, such as

• Secrets to scoring the lowest possible airfare
• Moves for getting through security in five minutes or less—every time
• Clever and entertaining techniques for wasting time in airports
• A five-minute program for overcoming the fear of flying
• Suggestions for handling Chronic Seat Kickers (CSKs) of all ages
• Tear-out forms for surviving an overnight stay in the airport

With humor and sincerity, Michaels takes you from the ground to the air and back again, offering well-researched, surprising, and unusual air travel trivia, such as why it's virtually impossible for the wings to fall off an airplane, what you should really do in the event of a water landing, why you get sick when you fly (clue: it's not the recycled air doing you in), and what's really going on in that cockpit. Perfectly suited for the frequent flyer (and even the not-so-frequent), this book will keep you smiling no matter how bumpy the flight, how tasteless the food, or how long the delay.

Meet the Author

Jeff Michaels is a humor writer and the author of two novels. He is also the founder and lead singer of Even Elroy (www.evenelroy.com), whose music can be heard on over 200 independent radio stations nationwide, and has been featured on The Real World (MTV), and in shows on USA Network, Oxygen, Lifetime, and in several independent films.

A hectic travel and performance schedule leaves him delayed more often than not, and he believes drastic measures are needed to help the one person forgotten amongst all the airline industry woes: the weary traveler. Hence, Please Hug Me—I've Been Delayed was born.

Michaels also claims to be a level-ten Sudoku player, even though he's been repeatedly told no such ranking exists.
