I picked this up in Heathrow on the way back from a week in southwestern Siberia, a hellhole of a place, and this book was so on target with all the random idiocy and kindness and suspicion and just plan wonderment you stumble into once you leave the main thoroughfares trough London, Tokyo and Sydney and find yourself in way-out-of-the-way places and situations you could never imagine--until that very moment. Read it on the flight from Heathrow and my laughing prompted the stewardess to read a few pages. She had tears in her eyes from laughing so hard.

I must say, I was intrigued by the title and ready to read some fantastic accounts of a veteran traveller to exotic, unexplored places...but it reads more like a series of "Top Ten lists" saying, "this is so crazy", "this is so dirty"! Really not recommended for anyone who has lived abroad, or had experience in other countries. More for college kids who want to spend a summer or year after their studies hanging out with other ex-pats in tourisy places, saying, "Wow man, things are really cheap in Thailand!"

Sarcastic, hilarious but at times practical peice of work. Some of Moore's findings provided warning/tips during my own trips. Others stirred up my curiousity and provided ideas/reasons to visit the places I've never been interested before. Hard to stop once you start reading!

I have picked up all of Peter Moore's books during my travels to Australia, and read them all. He has covered a lot of territory in great depth during his wanderings -- much of it backwater, unstable or just plain shady. This particular book is really advice, guidance and recommendations to mentally prepare you for adventurous travel. It is thorough, well written and witty. Even if you have no plans to visit some of the lands he describes, it is just plain interesting reading. It also gives you a sense of how extensively and frequently he's traveled. His writing style is direct, to the point and intelligent -- more descriptive/observational rather than ruminating about feelings/emotions ad nauseum. I hope for the sake of US readers that the rest of his books (The Wrong Way Home, Montezuma's Revenge, Swahili for the Broken Hearted) become available in this market.

I discovered Peter Moore's books while travelling in Australia earlier this year and have been searching for the rest of the collection since returning to the US. It is fantastic that we can finally get at least one of his titles here in the States. NSITT is a hysterical account of all the horrible things that can happen to you while travelling and that ultimately make your trip worthwhile and memorable. It is an absolute must-read for the travel junkie (and/or for the travel literature junkie). The style is such that you can open the book to any page, read a top ten list, and then rush to your computer to scour the internet for a ticket to anywhere promising uncertain adventure. Or you may be grateful that you are safe at home, dysentary free, and living vacariously via someone's else's fortune (misfortune?). Either way, this book will leave you in stiches.
