More About the Author

Hi,

I'm a retired history teacher who has spent the last three years mapping the world of literature, history, philosophy, science, sport, myths and legends.

My belief is that Wherever you travel in the world, there is the perfect bite-size article, essay, letter or short story that would be the perfect companion to your travels.

If you have any good ideas for what could be included please drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you.

There's a whole of series eBooks - starting from just $2.99 - so you can be just about anywhere in the world and there'll be some magical piece of writing that would be perfect to read while you sit back and sip your cappuccino.

Best Regards

James

P.S. For some examples of what this series is about ...

In a cafe in Paris? Why not read a witty essay by Mark Twain on what he thought of French women, or a letter from Gustave Eiffel describing his new idea for a tower... Find yourself in Hollywood? Why not read the first film script - you'll be surprised how short it is - or how about some love letters from Howard Hughes to Katharine Hepburn?

If you're sitting in a garden in Florence you can read what Leonardo Da Vinci thought about the meaning of life - all in his own words! That's the beauty about this series - it doesn't tell you what to think about Da Vinci, it gives you his actual words - carefully selected to leave out the boring bits. So you can read direct from Da Vinci: How to Live Longer and How to Die Happy. He even tells you why the Sky is Blue and his prophecies for the future.

You're in park by the Champs Elysees in Paris? Why not read one of Napoleon's letters to Josephine, and see why he loved her above all the others. You're in Berlin? How about reading one of Hitler's speeches - to understand just how he managed to beguile a nation and commit such horrors. At the Tower of London? How about a confession from Captain Blood, explaining exactly how he stole the Crown Jewels? Or read Churchill's description of the tower during the blitz. At the Pyramids in Egypt? then what about reading the Egyptian Book of the Dead? or a letter from Napoleon describing what happened when he slept overnight in the Chamber of Khufu... On a visit to the Scottish Highlands? Why not read George Spicer's sighting of the Loch Ness Monster - and see if you can spot any flaws in his story. In Nepal? why not read the diary of the world's most infamous yeti-hunter. You get the idea... hope you enjoy.

Format: Kindle Edition
If you're interested in Italy then this book is a little gem. I guarantee you will spend more time enjoying this than any other guide book you have ever had. There are so many exquisite writers all writing passionately about Italy: Da Vinci, Casanova, Charles Dickens, D.H. Lawrence. There is also another book in the series on Florence well worth getting both.
