Forbidden Knowledge: Travel by Michael Powell Interested in knowing how to break laws abroad and perhaps not get caught, or smoke in a plane or scam your fellow tourists or any of a number of sometimes highly illegal activities? This feisty and always entertaining book describes how to do things that perhaps you’ve always wondered about trying but never had the guts to do. This is a great read for both armchair travelers or those adventurers trying to add some additional adrenaline to their trips.
Each “how to do” contains detailed instructions and an accompanying image. While some of the activities described in this book are highly illegal or dangerous, some are quite entertaining and others may prove useful. This book can certainly be used as a conversation starter especially when trying to kill some time while on any number of forms of transportation during your trips.
