There are only a handful of places left on this earth where you can't buy a McDonald's hamburger or stay in a Holiday Inn - and John Simpson has been to them all.
This hugely successful volume of writing is a celebration of some of the world's wilder places.
His extraordinary experiences include stories about a television camera that killed people, about how Colonel Gadhaffi farted his way through an interview and how he - Simpson - mooned the Queen. "Highly entertaining" - "The Times". "What amazing tales he has to tell, and with what enthralling vividness ...Riveting" - "Daily Mail". "The range of his travels is staggering ...Never less than entertaining, sometimes moving and often funny" - "Sunday Telegraph".
