Your Child Abroad: a travel health guide
This book is so informative and so interesting, it is absolutely mandatory for parents traveling with children in areas of the world where there are health issues beyond your experience. There is a prodigious amount of up-to-date and accessible information packed into this volume--and it's the kind of book that you want to read from cover to cover, even the parts less relevant to your needs. My husband and I recently returned from a six-month sojourn in Thailand, Laos and Burma with our four children (aged 7, 5, 3 and 1). We carried this book as part of our medical kit, and it was invaluable in preparing that medical kit and also in helping to plan our trip itinerary (i.e., the book convinced us that malaria was the one nonnegotiable health issue). Memorable anecdotes from expatriate and traveling families pepper the book. There's nothing else like this out there.

How to Shit Around the World
One of the most interesting reads and had me in fits of laughter through most of it! I'm possibly one of the most hygienic people out there and yet this book still managed to open my eyes further than I could imagine! It's a must read and a book any traveller should have on their travels as it contains crucial information on symptoms, reasons and solutions. A pleasurable read.
