This a good travel guide book for breaking out of your general travel rut and learning tips and tricks for traveling on a budget. It didn't have any earth shattering new techniques, but did get some good websites and references for trying out new ways to budget travel.

I skimmed this and thought it had some really helpful information. If I take a big trip in the future I'd like to come back and go through some sections in detail.

Although it read a bit like a textbook at times, this book was full of valuable information, especially for those of us who get to travel abroad but rarely. I will definitely be making notes!
