Richard Dawood has done it again. He has produced another edition of his magnificent book, better than the previous edition. It comes in 530 pages, yet small enough to slip it into the hand luggage when travelling. That is the idea; to inform the travellers that seek information, and help them manage travel problems they face and how to prevent them. This is the fundamental strength of this book... I would recommend this book to every traveller I see in my travelclinic. It is an invaluable part of the travellers handluggage.
... now in its fifth edition and is the most useful reference book on the subject.
Travellers' Health remains the bible for all who want to understand the basic physical problems of travelling. This is important, in-depth information which covers every contingency and which, along with toilet paper, is one of the true indispensables in any adventurous traveller's bag.
