Book review: Dan Poynter’s Air Travel Handbook

I recently received a printed copy of Dan Poynter’s Air Travel Handbook – a goldmine of information for the travel enthusiast and, in particular, the frequent flyer. It’s not really the kind of book that needs to be read from cover to cover but instead is easy to dip in and out at any point and learn anything and everything you want to know about air travel.  Its coverage really is extensive, covering everything from packing to making the most of airline frequent flyer programs.  A huge amount of research has gone into compiling the publication, and the book is packed with references to further online sources of information.  For this reason, I would suggest you opt for the eBook rather than the printed edition as you’ll be able to click on the links rather than have to copy them from the book into your browser. The author, Dan Poynter, is clearly a seasoned traveller – he is a licensed pilot himself, travels almost 10,000 kms every week and has completed more than 20 round-the-world itineraries.  That alone should be make him a pretty good authority when it comes to flying!
