Please check out the my book review of Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a Day. Doug Mack grew up reading travel memoirs and inherited the travel bug and from his parents, so he decided to travel to Europe using Frommer's Europe On 5 Dollars a Day book as his guide, as a sort of experiment to see if he could travel cheaply without the use of the internet. He also wanted to document how things have changed in Europe since 1963. Mack is a witty writer and Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a Day is well-researched and a interesting look into the history of travel, Frommer style.

Doug Mack Author Interview
It has been a pleasure to work with Doug Mack this month and I would like to thank him for being the November Minnesota Author in the Spotlight. I met Doug Mack at the Twin Cities Book Festival a year ago in October, 2012 and was surprised to find that we were connected through South High School. I love reading travel books and memoirs and Doug's book is really entertaining and fun and has inspired me to get out there and travel more. I'm so glad I was able to feature Doug Mack on BookSnob.
