First major point to make is this book is clearly focused on the needs of travellers of the United States of America. If like me live and travel mainly in Europe, substantial portions of it are going to be irrelevant unless you are planning to visit the USA (and in some cases just irrelevant).
Secondly it also seems a little unclear what it is all about. There are several stages where I felt I was reading a diet book not a travel book. Later on I appeared to be reading an exercise book. On the whole if I'm travelling I'm more concerned about enjoying the local cuisine, sights and sounds, than worrying about my waistline and how many steps I've taken in the day - I can do that when I'm at home - so those sections were definitely bits to skip over.
The book is in three parts. The first provides the numbered travel tips. Most are sensible and useful though I'd like to think I already knew quite a few of them. It is a sad fact that while several tips seem blindingly obvious, yet you see travellers who evidently don't know them every time set off on a journey. Some USA specific tips, like those about the TSA (not having taken an internal flight there for many years), proved a bit mystifying for me.
Some of the tips I frankly found scary. Hints 113-117 either reflect horrifyingly on the level of hygiene in the USA in general or suggest the authors are so germ phobic they are only a step or two away from locking themselves away from the world like Howard Hughes (e.g. 114 - Important: Avoid using or touching the seat pocket in front of you. It's germ central...). When, or if I get the urge to swab every item of public furniture I encounter with an antiseptic wipe, it'll be time for me to stay at home for good.
Part two is more narrative and there are several useful chapters on travel within the USA, and around luggage and booking travel and accommodation. I cheerfully ignored "Chapter 12: Get a Workout Anywhere".
Part three is basically a book of lists. Lists of useful travel apps, and lists of travel contacts. So it's something to dip into rather than read, but ultimately it's probably the most useful part of the entire book. If my wife get ourselves together and actually sort out taking a trip to the USA next year, I'll be mining this section of the book for information that is for sure.
Overall a book I might well borrow from the library to plan a trip, but probably not one I'd be particularly keen to own.
