Read full description of the books The Survival Guide for the Adventurous International Traveler:Albert Podell, the only American to visit every country in the world, reveals the tactics and techniques that enabled him to explore and survive in the most dangerous places on earth.
In The Survival Guide for the Adventurous International Traveler, Podell shows how to prepare for rugged trips: how to lay out a reasonable itinerary and route, select equipment and supplies, and pack for a combination of maximum self-sufficiency and maximum mobility. He explains all the steps needed to get in physical condition for these long and arduous journeys, how to safeguard your health from all manner of medical threats, how to outwit the bandits and bad guys you are likely to encounter, and, in those rare moments of relaxation, how to get the best deal on souvenirs.
Read information about the authorALBERT PODELL recently became the first American known to have visited every country in the world. Decades earlier, he was the co-leader of the successful Trans World Record Expedition and co-author of Who Needs A Road, an adventure classic still in print after 48 years. His thrilling new book, Around the World in 50 Years, will be published March 24 by St. Martin’s Press.
Al has been an editor at Playboy and several outdoor magazines, reviewed books for the Chicago Sun-Times, managed the literary quarterly that introduced the Beat Generation writers to American readers, and has published more than 250 magazine articles, mostly on adventure.
Al holds a degree in government from Cornell, with emphasis on foreign affairs, was the Graduate Fellow of the Committee on International Relations at the University of Chicago, and received a law degree from NYU.
He has had successful careers as an editor, director of photography, freelance writer, advertising creative director, ad agency VP, good-government lobbyist, trial attorney, producer and director of feature-length music videos, and (much less successfully) theatrical investor and producer. He spent seven years supervising the marketing of movies for 20th Century Fox and Columbia Pictures, was president of the American Society of Magazine Picture Editors, head of the American Society of Film Advertisers, and ran the annual Motion Picture Advertising Awards. His music videos have won the bronze and silver awards at the Houston Film Festival and the gold award at the Charleston Film Festival. As an attorney, he never lost a jury trial in 32 years.
Al is an all-around outdoorsman – skier, boarder, hiker, biker, camper, backpacker, mountaineer, canoer, kayaker, long-distance swimmer, scuba diver, windsurfer, and adventurous vegetable gardener.
