5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Katarina Walker on July 27, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is about 30 pages long. Each page consists of about 10-20 lines, so you will read the entire book in about 5 minutes.
Furthermore, everything she has written is so obviously common sense that you will learn absolutely nothing. This is the worst value in a book that I have ever read. I wonder, why did she bother? You can get the same information by reading every sign in the airport. There is no insight whatsoever. Please don't waste your money on this. Buy yourself a coffee and piece of cake instead. At least you'll get something out of it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very small book with very little information on each page. To add to that, the information is mostly all rehashed common knowledge. Very expensive for not much reward. Don't waste your money.

Format: Paperback
This is advertised as a "fun and fast" read for seasoned and not-so-seasoned flyers. I beg to differ, it would make a good magazine article for first-time fliers, maybe a chapter in an etiquette book, but a whole book, and a really expensive one to boot? I was expecting way more than what this delivered.

It's never a good sign when a search inside feature comes up blank for the content, so here's a sample of the tips included
"* Do confirm your flight and seat assignments 24 hours prior to flight time.
* Don't forget to stop the newspaper and hold the mail.
* Have your ID ready.
* Don't argue with security agents.
* Do seat in your assigned seat until everyone has boarded.
* Do observe the captain's instructions when asked to be seated.
* Do control your children.. no one enjoys having their seat kicked when resting or sleeping.
* Do come prepared with your own food.
* Don't bring food on board that smells
* Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
* Do assist fellow travelers if they need help stowing or retrieving luggage
* Don't leave luggage unattended.."

Format: Paperback
A Traveler's Passport to Etiquette by Lisa Mirza Grotts was a great read and a perfect "Bon Voyage" hostess gift for my girlfriend leaving on a cruise. It's going to be on the top of my "Giving" list every time one of my friends travels for fun or a big vacation. Just read her blog on the Huffington Post! What a great way to approach giving....
