Doug Mack is the November Author in the Spotlight here on Book Snob and he is giving away two copies of his book, Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a Day, One Man, Eight Countries, One Vintage Travel Guide to Book Snob followers. This contest is open internationally. Yay!
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
When Doug Mack picked up a 1963 edition of Europe on Five Dollars a Day, he stumbled on an inspired idea: to boldly go where millions have gone before, relying only on the advice of a travel guide that's nearly a half century out-of-date. Add to the mix his mother's much- documented grand tour through Europe in the late 1960s, and the result is a funny and fascinating journey into a new (old) world, and a disarming look at the ways the classic tourist experience has changed- and has not-in the last generation.
After a whirlwind adventure spanning eight countries-and costing way more than five dollars a day-Mack's endearing account is part time travel, part paean to Arthur Frommer's much-loved guide, and a celebration of the modern traveler's grand (and not-so-grand) tour.
