For those who think that travel guidebooks are the gospel truth.
Wanted: Travel Writer for Brazil
Decisiveness: the ability to desert your entire previous life - including a well-salaried office job, attractive girlfriend, and basic sanity for less than minimum wage.
Attention to detail: The skill to research northeastern Brazil, including transportation, restaurants, hotels, culture, customs, and language, while juggling sleep deprivation, nonstop nightlife, and excessive alcohol consumption
Creativity: The imagination to write about places you never actually visit
Resourcefulness: Utilizing persuasion, seduction, and threats, when necessary, to secure a place to stay for the evening once your pitiable advance has been (mis)spent
Resilience: determination to overcome setbacks such as bankruptcy, disillusionment, and an ill-fated one-night stand with an Austrian flight attendant

This narrator is terrible. It sounds like one of those programs that reads the text on a computer. After 15 minutes I had to return the book because it was that bad. Too bad, it sounded like an interesting book.
