I’m really excited to announce my next book project, How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler: And Save Time, Money & Hassle. You can order your copy online now.

I know what you’re thinking. No, I’m not claiming be the world’s smartest traveler.

I’ve been helping solve your vacation problems for more than a decade. But these cases didn’t slowly turn me into a travel genius. Instead, with each refund I secured and every botched reservation I helped fix, I learned what not to do when I’m on the road.

I have you, my readers, to thank for that education. I’m beyond grateful for it.

And now it’s time for a little payback.

What to expect

In How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler, I’ll show you:

How to save time. Whether you’re planning a honeymoon, or a business trip to close a deal, time is a finite and precious commodity. The travel industry sometimes likes to waste it by making you stand in line, wait on hold, or by sending you pointless form letters. I’ll show you my favorite shortcuts.

How to save money. Let’s face it, no one likes to spend more than they have to. I’ll tell you when you don’t need to sell out more — and when you should. I’ll also give you a heads-up on where the bargains can be found, and which ones are too good to be true.

Southwest Airlines is dedicated to the highest quality of customer service delivered with a sense of warmth, friendliness, individual pride, and Company Spirit. We are committed to providing our employees with a stable work environment with equal opportunity for learning and personal growth.

How to prevent hassles. From onerous contracts, to come-ons by opportunistic timeshare salesmen, the last thing you want when you’re traveling is to be harassed. No worries. I can show you how to avoid these silly roadblocks.

How To Be The World’s Smartest Traveler will be published in early 2014 by National Geographic Books and its publishing partner Random House. (Here’s our guide to traveling during the holidays.)

Thank you for your support. This book wouldn’t be possible without you.
