This volume (65 things) is 400 pages long. Ironically, the “70 Things to Do” book is just 304 pages long. I guess the publishers assume that the older you get the less time you have to read, since you should be out “doing” the things listed in the book!
Unlike the more-generic “70” book, this one concentrates on “Travel”. The 65 “experts” whose essays are here include actor Andrew McCarthy (best known as part of Hollywood’s “brat pack” in the 60s – who is only 51 years old but has a new career as a travel writer), Ed Perkins (who seems to be quoted in every travel article you read in a newspaper) and Andrew Collins, whose specialty is travel for LBGT folks. Most of the others were not previously known to me. Some of the short essay talk about permanently relocating while others talk about unusual places. And some are about the “attitude” of travelling. Don’t come here expecting many “place specific” ideas. And many discuss “world travel” which –if you’ve priced it lately – you know may not fall into the “affordable” category.
Most of the essays in THIS book are about “attitude” and doing things to make your life meaningful.Read more ›
The only drawback is the format of the text. Perhaps it was designed for the Kindle and not reformatted for paper, but the large type and double spacing gives the misimpression of the book being less worthy than it actually is. There's a great deal of good information here!
