Baker & Taylor
Discusses the author's numerous trips to exotic places all over the world and argues that modern travelers should throw away their guidebooks and let the places they visit be their only guide.

Perseus Publishing
The popular New York Times travel reporter’s spirited case for chucking guidebooks and becoming the independent travelers we all deep

While writing his celebrated Frugal Traveler column for the New York Times, Matt Gross began to feel hemmed in by its focus on what he thought of as ?traveling on the cheap at all costs.” When his editor offered him the opportunity to do something less structured, the Getting Lost series was born, and Gross began a more immersive form of travel that allowed him to ?lose his way all over the globe”—from developing-world megalopolises to venerable European capitals, from American sprawl to Asian archipelagos. And that’s what the never-before-published material in The Turk Who Loved Apples is all about: breaking free of the constraints of modern travel and letting the place itself guide you. It’s a variety of travel you’ll love to experience vicariously through Matt Gross—and maybe even be inspired to try for yourself.
