It's all here: Adventures in Africa, Azerbaijan and the Arctic. Headhunters and prayer flags, liars and thieves, evil spirits and atrocious food. From Tbilisi to Tibet to the Trans-Siberian Railroad, Common Sense and Whiskey is a crisp survey of what's it's like in the real world. You can handle just about anything out on the road with a believable grin, common sense, and whiskey. That's been the author's theory, anyway, for 25 years of international travel. So far, so good.

When Chernobyl's Reactor 4 blew up in April 1986, the roof blew away - a million pounds of concrete. Fire filled the sky. The reactor's graphite core, radioactive and deadly, burned like charcoal for 10 days. Visiting Chernobyl, framed by the author's visit, revisits the accident itself, relives the evacuation of the area, and discusses both the physical environs and the political circumstances of the Soviet Union at the time. Please note that the author/narrator is not the actor Bill Murray.
