I thought the concept of the book sounded interesting. Only to discover that the stories were being written by Intellectuals who had very little sense of humor.

A collection of the worst trips ever by writers who travel for a living. Some are hilarious, some are scary, some are just sad; all give a fuller look into what it means to travel to the most out-of-the-way places on the planet. 51 essays, stories, poems, and memoirs full of natural, animal, and human disasters by Joseph Brodsky, Jan Morris, David Mamet, Umberto Eco, Bob Geldof, John Updike, Paul Theroux, Peter Matthiessen, and many others. Inspiring and fascinating, whether you prefer to sit at home and scorn the idiocy of distant travel, or whether you're inclined to get out there and challenge your own encounters.
