Here are some reviews about my books and several other things that other people wrote about me.

Wanderlust - April - May 2009
Finally, let's not forget the troubled nation of Burma. Burma: the alternative guide is no ordinary travel guide, but then Burma is no ordinary destination. This stark look at the controversial country is a must read.
Real Travel - May 2009
No the sort of guide that tells you where to sleep, eat or even how to get there; the main focus of this one is the situation behind the colourful images of Burma. ...
The repression of the people by the military dictatorship, corruption, forced labour, poor healthcare and more, are discussed in a forthright manner. Likewise, their continuing struggle for freedom - from British occupation, through the Karen's centuries-old resistance against the Burmese majority, to the so-called Saffron Revolution of 2007.
Generously illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this is essential reading for anyone visiting - or considering visiting - Burma.
Get Lost Book - May 2009
At first glance this book seems to be a see-no-evil, speak no-evil guide to Burma. Glossy pictures of pagodas, palm trees, and smiling people around. Province by province, the cities and sites are described in ways similar to other guidebooks. Just when you might conclude that the authors have their heads stuck in the sand, the chapter headings change to "The Hidden Reality", "The Struggle for Freedom", and "Burma in Exile". Pictures of soldiers and demonstrators replace the smiles and temples. This book works as a political primer as well as a guidebook. Frankly, I don't know how the Burmese government would permit someone to bring it into their country.
