Click for availability and more information Bad Lands, by Tony Wheeler

What an interesting book for readers who enjoy tales of travel! Tony Wheeler certainly is a pro at traveling as he is the cofounder of Lonely Planet and has contributed to many titles in that travel series. In this book, Wheeler recounts his travels through 9 countries that have been labeled as "bad lands" in today's world : Afghanistan, Albania, Burma, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea and Saudi Arabia. For each country, he has written a brief history and the reasons why they have received this negative connotation. As Wheeler relates his travel experiences in these "less than popular" tourist destinations, great sketches of life in each country are given as well as very entertaining writing about his adventures in these "bad lands." In particular, his days in North Korea and Iraq are filled with great experiences. This book is highly recommended.
