Talks about foreign travel and things you should consider-if you are British. Actually, it is pretty comprehensive and there are are a lot of good things to take note of as generalities. But it really is aimed at the English.
I am not going to rate this book for the most basic of reasons-it was not written for me. I am an American. This book was written for the British. In most cases it will not matter. In this case, it does as Jenner and Smith are writing about a particular concern: how can a person from Great Britain travel abroad and what do they need to consider?
Having said that, they do have a lot of good general advice which anybody can take advantage of. Such as the chapter on security gives some good tips: Try not to look like a tourist; try not to look lost; ... But then they do go on to talk about places which the British government thinks are unsafe to travel to-they also do reference the USA State Departments travel advisories.
The other thing, the version I read was published in 2008. So the particulars may be dated. My advice: not a bad book to skim through, but try to find something specific to your situation.
