From Library Journal:

Peters (Gullible's Travels), a British commentator for NPR and the BBC, chronicles the making of the travel show he hosted for two seasons on a "certain TV network" (never named, but it was the Travel Channel), resulting in a combined travel memoir and history lesson, blended together with wit and surprising honesty. As the title indicates, Peters was sent to various locations around the globe, encountering local perils at each stop. For each site visited, Peters offers a humorous yet factual account of the locale's history and culture. He fully admits he lacks the adventurous spirit usually required of a travel show host, yet by the end of the book, he has managed to conquer his fears and sleep in a hut surrounded by lions. In addition to his many travel anecdotes, Peters also writes about his experiences with the TV network itself. While these plights are equally amusing and relevant, the unexpected changes in story line occasionally interrupt the flow of the book. In spite of this, this is a riotous and engaging read, recommended for travel literature collections in public and academic libraries.-Melissa Mallon, Univ. of Pittsburgh, Johnstown, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
