Penn Jillette's experience as a theater performer (Penn & Teller, magicians) stands him in good stead as he gives an energetic and emphatic reading of a list of possible travel disasters with accompanying do's and don'ts. Though some (abduction by an alien) are intended to be comical, others (hostage situation, hotel fire) are all too possible. A wealth of information is related in a husky voice that commands attention. Stereo sound effects loudly divide each section. General advice on packing, getting a good seat on an airplane, or foiling thieves (put your laptop in a diaper bag, carry an inexpensive "mugging wallet") is included. The final section has several helpful phrases in five languages; you could pick out the most useful. Remembering just a few of these tips could save your life. You might want to pack the print version. J.B.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
