DO TRAVEL WRITERS GO TO HELL? by author Thomas Kohnstamm hits stores this week, but has already ignited a firestorm in the traveling industry and caused a frenzy among the press.

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES (April 14, 2008): "Thomas Kohnstamm’s memoir of his time as a travel writer in Brazil, “Do Travel Writers Go to Hell?,” supplies enough salacious details to spice up any news report on the subject: sex, drugs and tips-he-stole. The first two were part of the “colorful adventures” that garnered the book a starred review from Kirkus. The last one is raising credibility questions for Lonely Planet, the publisher of guidebooks that are relied upon by folks looking for a hipper alternative to Fodor’s and Frommer’s.

"By his own admission, Mr. Kohnstamm recommended more locations than he saw while researching a Lonely Planet volume on Brazil. “I found out very quickly I was not able to go to all the places I needed to go to,” he told The Associated Press."
