For over half a decade, Matt Kepnes (aka Nomadic Matt) has used his massively popular travel blog to teach readers how to travel the world on the cheap. Arguing that traditional travel media lies, Matt cuts through the myth that travel is expensive. In the new edition of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, Matt reveals the tips, tricks, and secrets to comfortable budget travel that you won't find anywhere else with over 100 new pages of updated content. Traditional media shows you expensive hotels, resorts, cruises, and packages because that's what makes them money. They make you believe you have to spend money on travel. This book will show you why that is a lie and how to use the system against itself to gain free flights, hotel rooms, find alternative accommodation, get into attractions for free, websites to find the best deals, and as well as detailed costs and saving tips for destinations around the world.

As someone who has never traveled, but is very interested in traveling the world, I found this books to be valuable. For the first time it seems that I might be able to afford to travel sometime before retirement--hooray!

What 25-year-old has $20,000 in the bank?

As mentioned, some good tips for Canadians, but mainly for Americans and people who are really into saving money when they travel (which is good! but not how everyone wants to travel). Good for anyone who wants to learn how to save for a trip or wants to do some backpacking or long-term travelling.

This is written by an American for Americans, and much of the information reflects this. While there are some useful tips, the author is really only outlining his own travel preferences-his recommendations for suitcases and what to pack are examples of this. It might be useful for those travelling for the first time, but not so much for more frequent or experienced travellers.
