Listened to this on audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you've never read one of Troost's travelogues, pick up Sex Lives of Cannibals first. His writing is witty and his adventurous lifestyle is fascinating to the travel-starved, such as myself. And he's definitely changed my thinking about life in much of the South Pacific (that's a serious understatment!). This takes place after the events in his first book (Sex Lives of Cannibals - no sex, no human cannibals, but still mildly embarrassing to carry around), so there are plenty of references to his life that would be a little out of place to those who hadn't read the first book, or at least I think so. The audiobook version is terrific, narrated by the incomparable Simon Vance, who also narrated Under Heaven.
