Alain de Botton
Witty and surprising, Alain de Botton's The Art of Travel investigates why it is we are attracted to faraway locales. What's the appeal and how often does the foreign mystique live up to our expectations? In addition to his own travels, de Botton weaves in (often hilarious) observations from the journeys of other artists and writers. As an avid traveller, I enjoyed the reminder that no matter where you go, you can't escape yourself.
