Description

No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. A lazy, seemingly tired male (hence the spike in interest) lists things he finds overrated, overromanticised or simply too much effort, and hence advises us not to do them. Insulting just about everything, from Dark Side of the Moon to the grand canyon to befriending the homeless, you can be assured that if you're tempted to do something, this book will try to talk you out of it. I had a quick look at getting there form Tbilisi and most routes involved two or three changes and around 24 hours to arrive in Cuzco then there would be a "bladder-bursting seven hour bus ride".

I think RW would be OK with me saying that because he says so in the book - skip the parts you can't be arsed to read LOL. Whilst I understand the reasoning behind Richard Wilson's book, the expected 'humour' just wasn't there.Fantastic book with a brilliant take on seeing all the well-known, over-visited, over-glorified tourist meccas.

Or more objective: a few entries were fairly well argued, such as the one about the history of the marathon being a myth and marathon running being more about proving your fitness than continuing a tradition. It did make me laugh out loud several times (being a bit Victor Meldrewish myself - not something I do often) and I was saddened to finish the book but have now bought 'Those were the days . Each chapter begins with a diatribe, followed by a detailed look at the alternative side of the most frequently cited must do's, giving off-putting facts and statistics to quote at holier-than-thou thrillseekers. There are a couple of bands and television shows that he mentions that would connect with an older reader. It gives off-putting facts and statistics to quote at holier-than-thou thrillseekers, so the next time somebody tells you that you simply must swim with dolphins, read Kafka in Prague, or go skydiving, you can tell them exactly where to get off.

I am happy to leave dolphins alone, parachute only when the plane I'm in is not going to make it and, as for tying rubber bands to my legs and jumping off things with a nice view . He begins with Machu Picchu, which might look fantastic but is thousands of miles away and so expensive to get to. Honestly I have no interest in 99% of the stuff in those books so why waste my time doing something I don't want to.

Some funny (and often sopt-on) reasoning on most of the 101 things (I guess the author did well on his school's debate team), but ultimately, a bit samey throughout. Not all things on the not to do list are great or should be followed (most really) but honestly was just fun reading the opinion of another who’s not afraid to say whats on his mind (a fresh air with the cancel culture these days). Here, at last, is the timely antidote to the plethora of '101 things' books so beloved by vaunting adventurers, to finally make them stop telling us how to live.The growing numbers of tourists threaten the area's integrity wearing away footpaths and knocking over walls. Book is excellent of its kind, given the author, but I do wish he would forego the use of words I haven't heard since my time as a cavalryman. Wilson rampages his way through the many varied things that you must see/do/read/watch/listen to while giving many a good reason as to why you just shouldn't bother. Perhaps you can in fact attain happiness not by going anywhere or doing anything but instead by actually reducing your ambitions. If you're a positive person, enjoy new experiences and seeing the world and not accepting the norm, don't read this.
