It is very adventurous and you can't help but fantasize about traveling yourself when you're reading it.
It's somewhat geared toward women as both of the authors are women, but as a girl I liked that.
It tells you how pick out a proper sleeping bag, pad, backpack, and almost any other gear you may need, with lots of check lists and wonderful little travelogues from fellow travelers in between chapters.
While perhaps they are a little too concerned about thieves, It is a very fun and enjoyable read.
If you enjoy planning and traveling in your imagination before you actually start out on your adventure, then I highly recommend this book for you!
