OK, so, this book wasn't what I expected. I sort of thought he would talk about a lot of different stuff, but mostly he talks about his one trip through Brazil as a writer for Lonely Planet, plus some before and after of his life in NYC. Which, don't get me wrong, was pretty entertaining, it's just not what I thought I was getting.

Having said that, I enjoyed it. Once upon a time I studied abroad (several times), and the descriptions of the hostel people, the impact of his work, and the whole baffling travel thing was familiar. Ignore the back cover, think of it as a travelogue of a trip, and it's a pleasant read of something you probably won't have to do.
