Granted, not being a woman, I am not the target audience for this book, but I thoroughly enjoyed Beth Whitman’s guide to India. This is not a guidebook to the individual sites but more a strategy book for how to tackle India. It guides you through:
- what to pack
- how to secure your valuables
- what you did with your left hand back there in the toilet
- why you should sit on your left hand at the dinner table
- how to dress and comport yourself
Some of the information in the book is definitely targeted at women, but I found much of it to be useful to me as well. I have often been told by travelers that India is a challenging country. A first time visitor would be well advised to consult a tool like this book before their first trip to India.
