He also gives great advice/tips on how to capture these flags and travelling in general!!
If your thinking about taking a trip,read this book first and then start packing!
The book itself is a great read. Neil Skywalker is for the most part a likable character. There are many moments where he comes off as a complete douche but on the overall he come across as a guy who is confused about whether or not he wants to find love or have tons of sex with many women. One thing that sets this book apart from others in the genre is that he shares his failures and success. The author also goes into detail about why he thinks he was successful and why he thinks he failed. I liked the detail and because of the details I believed the stories that were told in the book.
The 50 pages in the end with advice make the purchase worthwhile because everything was field tested by him and as you read through it you will recall situations where he actually used his tips.
Besides that obviously fascinating goal, there are tons of budget travel advice, you get to meet a very eclectic (but ostensibly real) cast of characters, get recommendations and warnings about different travel destinations - including, as can be expected - pick up bars.
Although the book is quite long, it is a pretty good read.
If you like travel, this is the book for you.
If your anyone interested in witnessing someone grow from a just your average guy to a Wordly Man, this book is for you.
If you like to read books that give you a new perspective on life, this is the book for you.
Its very long (which is a GOOD thing), as he takes us all around the world with him. The amount of detail from his stories really brought it home for me. Because of reading this book and all the experiences he shares, I am now planning a trip to Thailand!
I've suggested this book to my friends and they also love it. When reading it, you will REALLY catch the travel bug! He opened my eyes to South East Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Phillipines, Malaysia, ect.) and thats a place I never in a million years planned on visiting.
His story telling goes into enough detail that when I travel I will try and follow the same pattern he did. By referencing his book, I'll know all the cool guest houses and hidden sights off the beaten path that Neil found and shared with us! I'll also be somewhat ready for the local women, as Neil also goes into great detail there :)
And just because I had a personal preference for the SouthEast Asian chapters, I dont want to make it sound like thats all the book has to offer. He also goes into great detail about other countries. In this book I heard all about Russia, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia, Brazil and the rest of South America, Central America, and right up through the United States and New York City.
Great read and I'm hoping he saves up enough money to get back out there and write us another book!
Neil is not shy and meets a colorful cast of characters along the way. What I like best about the book is that I can really relate to the book, because I have been to a many of the same countries Neil traveled to and my experiences were very similar. When he describes Russian or SE Asian girls, I know he's been out with them. Some of the girls in SE Asia, I'd swear I dated the same girls, because I would have never believed there were two girls out there so crazy. The guy is brave and crazy himself and lucky he didn't get killed from one of those wild jealous girls.
Neil just tells it like it is, all "warts" and all, no "sugar coating". I loved the story of the "hell" bus trip in Indonesia and I loved the story about banging the fat Belgian girl in Malaysia. Other guys would have said they banged a 10, but the truth, is always funnier and the only way to write a good book.
Overall, I'd give the book 5 of 5 stars. Great job Neil.
