You are Here: Traveling with JohnnyJet dot com is encyclopedic and perhaps the most comprehensive book I've seen on online travel resources. If you travel, you need this book.
John E. DiScala's research will make your travel research easier and when you are actually traveling, you can visit the website. When you visit the site you can look up information with the "Jet Codes." For example: Johnny Jet Code: Boat Rides. You will then find links to various sites and can quickly click through and find the information you need. It was super fast and much easier than trying to look up boat rides in a regular search engine. Just look for the Code Index in this book. The regular index is also quite helpful.
So, whether you need a free language translator or want to avoid the world's most dangerous places, it is all here.
Eric Leebow is the founder of Yahbooks Publishing and is the author of various other You Are Here books. John E. DiScala, AKA Johnny Jet is a travel expert and the founder of the travel portal Johnny Jet dot com. He is known for his weekly newsletter and site and from what I can see he is passionate about traveling.

With the thousands of Internet travel guidebooks to choose from it is very difficult to separate the good from the mediocre. You can literally devote days trying to figure out which guide will reveal the most useful information pertaining to the best air-fares, hotels, cars, lodging, student travel, medical resources, romantic vacations, unique lodging, National Parks, hideaways, things to do and see, shopping, restaurants, and many other essentials necessary to plan and enjoy your vacation.
The impetus that brought about the publication of the recent Internet travel guidebook, You Are Here Traveling with JohnnyJet.com, was the result of the many emails John E. DiScala had received from viewers of his Internet portal JohnnyJet.com.
Apparently, people were inquiring if there was a companion travel guidebook to compliment the portal.
As a result, DiScala and fellow co-author, Eric Leebow, decided to put together a innovative book that would be the ultimate Internet travel guide for people wanting quick and easy information, and at the same time to be used in conjunction with the web site.
Divided into 34 chapters, the guide effectively points its readers in the right direction in clearly summarizing and highlighting over 3000 travel Internet sites.
These sites provide a wealth of detailed information that makes life much easier for the traveler. Even the arm- chair traveler will find something of interest.
The guidebook not only focuses on the traditional topics as senior travel, restaurants and hotels, but also the non-traditional-where to find the best diving directories, adoption travel or family reunions, travel humor sites, religious travel, archaeological digs, zoos, and other topics you would not normally find in the "run of the mill" Internet guidebooks.

I saw this book in the Reader's Digest this month and ordered it since I travel a lot for business and occasionally to take a vacation. When I got it, I was like "Wow this book is amazing!" I didn't know about JohnnyJet before, but now I can definitely say Reader's Digest picked a winner. What makes this book so great is that it covers everything travel and other stuff I would never have known about without referring to it. This thick book reviews over 3,000 travel Web sites, and not just any sites, but the ones you really need as a traveler. I also found it very useful because it virtually covers every country that you'd ever want to see, has information on saving when traveling domestically or internationally, some very helpful tips that I never even thought of, and more than just where to find money saving travel bargains, but some strategies that I found helpful when bidding and researching the different travel providers. Overall I believe any traveler will like this book, that covers it all. It's something that I'd highly recommend getting, even if you travel a few times out of the year.

UPDATE TO MY EARLIER REVIEW!! The reader who gave this book one star and a bad review must not have even looked at this book at all. This book is meant as a companion to the Johnnyjet.com website and yes you need a computer to use this book - duh!! Lastly - there are a number of categories that have no links because the book would have been 1000 pages long if all of the categories had links under them, those categories can be found on Johnnjet.com and by using the Jet Codes, you will find the links you are looking for.
Original review:
This is a great book - the information is invaluable and can be used for years to come. This book will be my constant companion as I research every vacation that I take! You will not have to make endless searches anymore to find the critical travel information that you need, it's now right at your finger tips. If you buy this book, you will not be disaapointed. Enjoy!
