Review by: resnar on April 26, 2012 :
I never really thought about how traveling could be different for some people based on where you're from or what you look like. America does seem different and somewhat strange after you've been to other countries. Joseph Brazer talks about his own experiences, but also what we can all experience by traveling. He didn't cut any corners when stating his opinions, but they are well supported and make you think.

The chapters on how he currently views America are most interesting and the one about women from other countries compared to American women was funny yet thought provoking. There's a lot of talk of black Americans and how they don't travel much and perpetuate stereotypes seen and talked about around the world.

Overall, it's a fun read with information about the world and America presented from a point of view that is rarely seen. I haven't found any books or websites that discuss the topics Joseph Brazer discusses and they "are" important.
