Book review at ASJA

How to Travel for Free (or pretty damn near it!) was just reviewed in the ASJA Monthly – the magazine for members of the American Society of Journalists and Authors. In the “What’s in Store” section, book reviewer Melissa Gaskill writes:

Seale makes a couple of important points, such as: There is an inverse correlation between the amount of time you spend researching, planning, and taking a trip and the amount of money you’ll spend, and the longer your trip, the less expensive it becomes.
