Rating: 2.5

Iyer's stories of his travels in Asia range from quite interesting to generalizations from a tourist's point of view. The real downside is that this book dates from the 80's, so it is hard to put much stock in any descriptions holding true today. (Also, as a "younger" reader, any cultural references - movies, celebrities, etc. - from the time were completely lost on me.)
