NBC's Today show travel editor Greenberg revealed insider secrets on how to save money without sacrificing the quality of service while traveling in his The Travel Detective: How To Get the Best Service and the Best Deal from Airlines, Hotels, Cruise Ships, and Rental Car Agencies. He now writes for the traveler who must spend time in an airport or city during a layover. And who better to offer insider secrets than those who fly for a living and must spend hours in airports and cities during flight changes? This book is actually a compilation of interviews that Greenberg and his assistants conducted with flight crews, both domestic and foreign. It is laden with airport and city tips, lists of favorite restaurants, book stores, and souvenir shops, and suggestions for things to do. Addresses and phone numbers are provided where necessary. Of real use only to those who routinely have long layovers, but you might want to check out a city you know you'll be passing through.George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, PA

They may hit one city four to six times a month, but they are there for only twenty-four hours (or even less) each time, so they always know where to go to get the best value for their money.

? great food and drink (hidden ethnic restaurants in London, and the
bars with the best attitude and cheapest drinks in Key West)
? secrets to navigating the world?s airports during layovers
