Not everything mentioned in this book is rubbish, but I have to admit that going bungee-jumping and cutting a child's umbilical cord are not very high on my list of things to do (rather my list of Things to Don't [and not at the same time!

It gives off-putting facts and statistics to quote at holier-than-thou thrillseekers, so the next time somebody tells you that you simply must swim with dolphins, read Kafka in Prague, or go skydiving, you can tell them exactly where to get off. This is not a book for those easily offended (or even those who are able to get offended not matter how easily) as Wilson has a go at pretty much everybody (himself included). Does get a bit repetitive if too much is read at a time, but found that by reading short bits in between my other books it isn't as noticeable. Some of the chapters are quite funny and to the point but putting things down that a lot of people truly enjoy sounds pompous, quickly becomes tedious and makes one wonder what the man actually does in his free time apart from sitting in an armchair staring out of the window or visiting nearby market towns. Some of us actually do think that Shawshank Redemption is a good film and who says that humans are more intelligent than dolphins ?Whilst I understand the reasoning behind Richard Wilson's book, the expected 'humour' just wasn't there. If he could restrain himself language-wise, the sentiments would be much appreciated by a number of my acquaintances who share his sentiments but are likely to assume the worst should i present them with a free copy. His description of how pointless it is to build an igloo or put up a tent had me rolling around on the carpet in fits. Fantastic book with a brilliant take on seeing all the well-known, over-visited, over-glorified tourist meccas.

Some funny (and often sopt-on) reasoning on most of the 101 things (I guess the author did well on his school's debate team), but ultimately, a bit samey throughout. Taking it with a grain of salt as I plan to do with nonfiction, I finished the first part, skimmed through the second part because I barely knew albums mentioned, finished the small 3rd part and closed the book before the 4th. In this book he makes it seem as if you do anything new you're just making a bad choice and that the best solution is to not try something new. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.I feel that this is the kind of book that you would read on the plane, and kind of flip through to pass the time. Great for those looking for short articles and that also happen to poke fun at the traditional to-do-before books.

Here, at last, is the timely antidote to the plethora of '101 things' books so beloved by vaunting adventurers. I think with Ephesus we had few expectations and it was early in our cruise and we were blown away by the site.
