MEDIA REVIEWS
The farther I got into this book, the more I wished I had read it 50 years ago. Invaluable. -- Sandra M. Fowler, President-Elect SIETAR USA
For those who have truly travelled, this is a warm, familiar tale; for those who only tour or sit at home, this may be the spark needed to whet one's wanderlust. * San Francisco Book Review *
A philosophical and anthropological exploration of how the act of travelling alters the traveller. -- Nick Hunt, author of 'Where the WIld WInds Are'
In practical steps, Why Travel Matters demonstrates ways we can go beyond mere tourism to become enlightened participants in new places everywhere. For all travellers - not to mention interculturalists - this book is a must. -- Fanchon Silberstein, Former Director The Overseas Briefing Center, US Dept. of State
A highly intelligent and deeply engaging book that examines not only the beauty but also the importance of travel. -- Thomas Swick, author 'The Joys of Travel: And Stories that Illuminate Them'
