It's all here: Adventures in Africa, Azerbaijan and the Arctic. Headhunters and prayer flags, liars and thieves, evil spirits and atrocious food. From Tbilisi to Tibet to the Trans-Siberian Railroad, Common Sense and Whiskey is a crisp survey of what's it's like in the real world. You can handle just about anything out on the road with a believable grin, common sense, and whiskey. That's been the author's theory, anyway, for 25 years of international travel. So far, so good. And now, in a new audiobook narrated by the author, Common Sense and Whiskey distills the most memorable experiences of a lifetime of travel to some of the world's least visited places.

Fifteen stories from Bhutan, Borneo, Burma, Greenland, Guangxi, Lake Baikal, Madagascar, Malawi, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Chilean Patagonia, the Southern Caucasus, the Trans-Siberian Railroad, Sri Lanka and Tibet. For travelers - experienced, aspiring and armchair alike - Common Sense and Whiskey is something to sip slowly and savor. Perceptive travel tales, well told.

Narrated by Bill Murray, whose day job for 30 years has been recording radio and television voiceovers. This is the author's sixth audiobook as narrator.
