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.

50 Camels and She's Yours
A psychotherapist, an accountant, a teacher and two doctors write about their very different experiences and insights of travel in five continents. The prose is well-observed, funny, poignant, perceptive and thought-provoking.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful - the best book I've read in a long while. Up-lifting, fun and inspirational....
