Books

In the last several years, the way many of us travel has changed markedly. My books are designed for this new style of travel and the modern independent traveler. Like this website, they have a heavy focus on mobile, travel tech, and the best travel tools and resources.

There are thousands of travel websites, books, and blogs that cater to generic travel advice and tips. I understand that most travelers know about tools like Skype, TripAdvisor, Airbnb, and so on. Therefore, I focus on giving practical, value-added tips, strategies, and tools that go beyond the obvious. If I talk about apps like Skype, I’m more likely to point out its power hidden features, teach you how to hack Skype for travel, introduce you to better alternatives, or show you how you can save on your Skype credit. Overall, I want to teach you how to get the most out of your travel tools and services in a way that can make a big difference in your travel experience.

My focus is also on creating unique content.

I aim to write value-added content that others haven’t covered well, or even at all. Also, I want to bring back the joy of learning. I believe that when you open a book, you should be excited about all of the new things you’re going to learn, and a good book should deliver on that promise.

Titles include:

Traveling with Evernote

 

Traveling-WIth-Evernote-Book-258x300

In the process of researching the Android Travel Life and iPhone Travel Life books, I tested in excess of 700 travel related apps, in real-world conditions, over more than 60,000 kms of travel. Evernote was my favourite. By a mile. And yet Evernote almost never makes it onto lists of popular travel related apps.

In over 100 pages of unique content, I’m going to show you how Evernote is the ultimate travel guide. Mastering Evernote for travel will save money, time, stress, and open up new possibilities in your travel. Traveling with Evernote starts with the Evernote basics and then teaches you the best power tricks, tips, tools, and strategies I’ve learned over several years of using Evernote for travel.

Traveling with Siri

 

Traveling With Siri

In the process of researching iPhone Travel Life, I gave Siri a good work-out and discovered that she was surprisingly useful for travelers. Traveling With Siri is written for travelers who want to get the most out of Siri in a travel context. The book focuses on the essentials of Siri’s strengths (and points out her weaknesses), and provides examples of the type of commands you would give her. Areas covered include, weather, time, finding things, using Siri as a personal assistant, navigation, entertainment, and more. Most readers will find several useful applications of Siri they hadn’t previously considered. Originally, Traveling with Siri was designed to be a bonus for iPhone Travel Life purchasers, however, I decided to offer it as a stand alone book.
