I'll have to work to find a book that disappoints me more than this one. I thought it would be humor. Well, the Introduction was funny. In fact, the description of the Atlanta airport had me in stitches (having been there myself) -

"Worse still, land in Atlanta, Georga, where they have the craziest luggage system I've ever come across anywhere in the entire galaxy. You get your luggage from the carousel. You go through Immigration. You go through Customs. I'm not saying they're slow. It's just that the last time I went through my passport expired by the time I got up to the desk."

But the rest of the book was full of all the negative things he has come to know of the countries he covered. About the only place that came off without the brunt of his scathing reports was Ho Chi Minh City. This one I am donating to the library booksale. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0349108129, Paperback)

This fourth travel book by Peter Biddlecombe sees the author negotiating the perils of business life in 20 cities, from Beirut to Budapest. He brings his eye to bear on the economic challenges faced by both post-cold war Europe and the developing nations of Asia and Africa, and continues to test the theory that a nation's culture lies in its bars.
