India is a lovely country, and some of the nicest, most pious people on earth live there. However, just like anywhere else, India does have parasitic inhabitants that think of us, the tourists, as an open wallet. Here is a travel book designed to give the listener knowledge about traveling in India - while staying safe - based on practical experience of traveling in the country for two years.

The book sounded irritatingly like it is written by a too sensitive and a little overthinking person. Although I have to give it to it, that there was also plenty of good and uselful advice.
The narrator, though had a funny way of talking, was actually rather pleasant to listen to.
Mental disturbance or closed head trauma? Totally paranoid view of everyone and everything in India, complete with complex narratives of all that he has suffered there at the hands of others. Yet he keeps returning. I was expecting this book to deal with avoidance of endemic diseases and how to avoid unwitting offences to those living in a culture mostly unfamiliar to me. This is more like a travel guide written by Torquemada.
The narrator deserves much credit for being able to perform this piece ably and without apparent judgement.
I am thankful not to have paid for this item
