Everything you've ever wanted to know about travel.... April 4 2012
By Andrus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the most enjoyable things about "On the Origin of the Species homo touristicus: The Evolution of Travel from Greek Spas to Space Tourism" by William Chalmers is that you can open it to any page and learn something new about travel. Yes it is a time line...and it is incredibly well researched. Exhaustively researched one might say. There are thousands of facts, who did what first? Who created motels? Who made the first package tour. And on and on. If you need an answer to a travel trivia question, it is most likely in this book. It is not a narrative with a story line, it is a time line of travel, a history of sorts, and thus a great book to have on the coffee table. But in the end, I still come back to just how much information there is in this book. Did I mention exhaustively researched? Buy this book. It is a must have for anyone who loves travel and anything to do with travel.
