Library Journal Review

Attention, travel lovers: Hasbrouck, an "extended travel specialist," has written the handbook for world travelers. The trips Hasbrouck has in mind don't include a lot of fancy hotels and tour groups but instead focus on independent adventure and really getting to see a country and its people. His comprehensive guide includes such information as getting discounted airfares, choosing a destination, types of transportation, what to pack, sample budgets, and dealing with culture shock and coming home. An excellent index is also included. Smart travelers will make sure to have this necessary guide in their backpacks when boarding the plane, and all public libraries will benefit from its purchase.‘Melisa Fiumara, North Tonawanda P.L, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
