It's like a number of random tips all put together, but in a way, it works and it makes sense. Good backpacking book.

Very good

This backpacking book is very good. I think I finally learned about some things I didn't know before, like the tourist scams, the ways to take care of your feet, and some other things.

Backpackers, here we come!

That sounded like a cartoon action yell, but in fact, I think it's very applicable. Backpacker is so much more possible now than it used to be and this book plays into that. It opens up possibilities to know what you're doing. Thanks.
