Maybe the book is very good at representing the generation who was in their late twenties during the 90s...? Surely, the author's intention was NOT to depict the current situation in TEFL, but I keep imagining some people might give up their plans of going abroad to teach, thinking that everything is still like this today.
A must read for anyone thinking teaching English overseas!
"To Travel Hopelessly" is a humorous and accurate depiction of what many, if not most, young English speakers go through when they choose to move overseas and become an English "teacher." English Teacher X shares both the details and the feelings associated with this experience in a way that is both engaging and rewarding. For those who are considering entering the field, the read will raise several cautions. For those already in the field, the read will provide a cathartic "Oh, yeah, it's not just me" feeling.
The book is easy to read and draws you in with an off-hand tone of voice that proves remarkably compassionate despite the many difficulties and disappointments the writer encountered. This is definitely worth the read, and might hook you into reading the other books by English Teacher X that, yes, you might have to pay for.
Not recommended for those who wish to follow in his footsteps but for those naive enough to think that a career in English teaching is all happy students and adoration.
Not Graham Greene but a good read.

Worst book I've ever read. Don't waste your time. This guy needs to grow up and get either a real job or professional help.Published 4 days ago by debby.foster
Yawn. Really immature writing, self-serving as well. He tries to show off and it comes off as pathetic such as in the first or second chapter when he says he picked up a SE Asian... Read morePublished 14 days ago by Amazon Customer

This is a hilarious book. However, the author takes way too many liberties while trying to maintain it as the truth. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
I liked the book. I found it to be quite humorous. As a TEFL teacher myself, I would have liked it if he had included anecdotes about how he conducted his classes.Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
I quite enjoyed this. Our anonymous author has some chops as a stylist, and a good comic sense. This is also a realistic look at the life of many expat English teachers.Published 6 months ago by BA
