This is a worthwhile purchase for travelers: an affordable, easy-to-use survey of health challenges on the road, from your vacation's start to finish. (André Picard Globe and Mail
A sensible compendium that covers all situations. (Sheldon Kirshner Canadian Jewish News
The most comprehensive and commonsensical I've seen. It's also the most up-to-date ... Such a book is a public service. (George Fetherling New Brunswick Reader
Mark Wise has written a great book on travel health, obviously with a wealth of professional experience on the subject. His passion for travel and adventure is evident in his writing.... The book provides a balanced perspective on the realities of health risks in the distant corners of the globe. This is coupled with measures that can be taken in order to travel there, enjoy oneself, and appreciate other places. The Travel Doctor should be of particular interest to, and a good resource for, anyone with an interest in travel and to physicians who care for such people.... I highly recommend this book (Eric S. Lane, MD, FACP Canadian Family Physician, Journal of the College
