Sleeping Around by Brian Thacker
Book DescriptionWhat sort of person offers up their couch to complete strangers? And how can said strangers be sure that the owner of that couch is not an axe-wielding psychopath? Intrigued by this fast-growing phenomenon, Brian Thacker set out on a couch-surfing tour of the globe to discover how and why dossing on someone's lounge room floor has become the latest, hippest way to travel. Join Brian as he travels through the Americas, Africa, India, Iceland and places in between, sleeping on floors and couches, under drum kits and in wardrobes; hanging out with some of the strangest, most charming, entertaining or just plain crazy people you could hope - or perhaps hope not - to meet. Brian has no idea just where he's going to end up or what he's getting himself into, but you can bet your bottom dollar (and his) that this will be one strange, mildly terrifying and very funny adventure.

Books By Author Brian Thacker
Tell Them to Get Lost, Paperback (September 2011)
Using Tony Wheeler's original 1974 Lonely Planet guidebook, 'Southeast Asia on a Shoestring', Brian Thacker sets out to find out how much Southeast Asia has changed since Tony ambled around the region in flared pants, following in his footsteps through Portuguese Timor, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos and Burma.
Where's Wallis?, Paperback (August 2006)
Paul Theroux, Bill Bryson, Michael Palin all have ventured forth to provide vivid and compelling accounts of exotic peoples and strange lands. But none has ever been daring (or perhaps stupid) enough to arrive in a country not knowing a single thing about the place. Until now.
Rule No. 5, Paperback (March 2006)
Brian Thacker, tour leader extraordinaire, tells it how it really is in this, his best selling and hilarious ride through Europe with a busload of raucous and rarely sober under 35s.
Planes, Trains and Elephants, Paperback (March 2006)» View all books by Brian Thacker
Whether you're an explorer or a tourist, the journey often proves more exciting than the place you eventually end up at. Not to mention more alarming, spectacular, dangerous or farcical. It's all pretty closely connected with the mode of transport you're dependent on - from stubborn mule to bumpy hovercraft to ancient plane.
