I really loved reading Corkum Nyks' book. I have to admit that many of the packing failures sometimes hit to close to home. However, after reading the book I now save a lot of time packing and more importantly unpacking my business and holiday suitcases. Good value for money!

Living in Europe with relatives in the States this book really made me realize it is not how much you can pack or schlepp it is what you pack and how efficiently you can do this. I recommend this book to all you overpackers out there!

WOW!! As a first time beach house renter, I had no idea what to take until a friend recommended the list on page 162 in Packing by the Book. We had everything we needed because we took the right stuff and didn't have to spend our vacation dollars on unnecessary purchases for the house. I recommend this all inclusive packing book to anyone who is going to the beach (or anywhere!) and wants a list of the right things to take along. Timeless advice!!

One of the things I liked about Nyks' book was that she tipped us Americans off to how our "Mall Casual" dress is viewed in Europe. If you don't want little children near the Louvre saying, "Mommy, why are those people dressed like that?" get this book.

Going somplace? Do three things: (1) buy this book; (2) open up your suitcase; (3)follow the suggestions! Easy! This book not only taught me how to get by on fewer items, but what things are appropriate to pack for my destination, and how to get them there without a wrinkled, jumbled mess on arrival! A must have for anyone who has had packing/suitcase disasters in the past!

Sounds familiar: after a two-week holiday having to pack all those outfits that you did not even used at all? It sure happened to me but now I just use the book and my suitcases feel a lot lighter. I use this book all the time for business trips as well as holidays abroad!
