TRANSFORMING TRAVEL (2018)
Just published in January 2018, so these are pre-publication reviews.
'Transforming Travel' is superb, touching, fresh and thought-provoking. If you believe in the possibility of improving our world through travel, it is a must read.
Kelley Louise, Executive Director, Impact Travel Alliance
“A fresh and optimistic agenda setting book for sustainable tourism. Innovative and full of inspiring examples”
Xavier Font, professor of Sustainable Tourism Communication, University of Surrey
CLEAN BREAKS (2009)
I co-wrote the award-winning 'Clean Breaks - 500 new ways to see the world' with Richard Hammond (founder of greentraveller). Rough Guides published it in August 2009, and then relaunched it in 2010 under the name 'Great Escapes'. It sold around 30,000 copies. For a preview of the book see: Clean Breaks Sample.
"The selection and presentation are inspired: this is a beguilingly simple, tactile compendium brimming with solid research and good writing."
Dan Linstead, Editor of Wanderlust Magazine
"When planning a holiday, what you're looking for are good ideas - and this book is chock-a-block with them... Before planning your next break, this book, by Richard Hammond and Jeremy Smith, is well worth perusing."
Frank Barret, Travel Editor, The Mail on Sunday's Book of the Week
"What I really like are travel books that make you desperate to visit the places they describe - Clean Breaks does this, and, best, it does it for every continent."
The New Yorker
"Fab book, brilliantly researched, and makes me very green... with envy, that I didn't write it, of course."
Catherine Mack, Irish Times
"I should warn you the moment you start reading you will want to organise your perfect trip! Perhaps it should come with a health warning to be read only when you've just been paid... or when you've got lots of annual leave to use."
Liverpool Daily Post
"The book is an entrancing collection of unspoiled, culturally rich places that revive an explorer's spirit."
Joanna Kakissis, World Hum
"It is a special piece of travel publishing, one far more ambitious than anything I've seen from its competitors."
Ethan Gelber, WHL.travel
"Lush material for either planning or daydreaming."
The Green Life
"This book is a real pleasure – something you’ll pick up and daydream over time and again. "
There’s no better reading material for a green globetrotter.
