A great way to spend an hour or so. This small book included all of Bryson's wit as well as the same excellent travel writing. Bryson's childhood images of Africa pretty much correlated to mine (i.e., Jungle Jim and Tarzan movies) but his trip to Africa brought him reality as he witnessed the extreme poverty and needs of the African people. I was a little disappointed that the book wasn't a little longer but I enjoyed it nonetheless!

Compelling! Having spent time in the places he's writing about, I was both in awe of how much worse parts of Kenya have become in 20 years and also Bill Bryson's terrific gift at telling a story in a candid and inspiring way.
