Well written book for business and leisure travelers alike. Definitely helps organize and shop for your trips, I learned about a few services I had never heard of before, and I'm hoping they can help me save money next time I have to buy a plane ticket or make hotel reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jill Duffy is amazing. June 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have not taken a trip on a plane for fun in a lot of years but I am also hyper organized and Jill Duffy was my first stop for advice when I went to California, in part because I know how meticulously she plans her own complex far reaching many-guests meeting up at different times in different cities trips, with the kind of amazingly awesome spreadsheet only needs like me will find sexy. If you need to get your travel organized so you can have more fun get this book and if you are already good at organizing get it for the joy of listening to someone who gets you and has some things even you didn't think of.
