"Bryson is one of the funniest travel writers in the business." -- The Globe and Mail "Bryson has become an enormously popular travel writer by coming off as the most literate tour guide you've ever had." -- The New York Times "Bryson is a terrific stylist. You can't help but enjoy his writing, for its cheer and buoyancy, and for the frequent demonstration of his peculiar, engaging turn of mind." -- Ottawa Citizen "Bryson is first and foremost a storyteller -- and a supremely comic and original one at that." -- Winnipeg Free Press
