In addition, this book is grounded theoretically in understanding tourism through the visual, but also other senses: the feeling of presence through smell, touch, bodily movement, and emotion. Pezzullo explains that the toxic tour often provides the embodiment of counterexperience to our everyday lives, which shapes our process of becoming. However, as Pezzullo observes in the conclusion, we also must remember that tourism, and especially toxic tourism, provides a learning experience, but does not necessarily clean up communities, nor does one actually know the experience of everyday life in toxic areas.
In short, this book is insightful for not only those interested in environmental protection, but also those who are interested in tourism studies, advocacy tourism, environmental communication, and an understanding of how our experiences shape what we learn and know about the world.
