    [synopsis] => Paul Theroux celebrates fifty years of wandering the globe by collecting the best writing on travel from the books that shaped him, as a reader and a traveler. Part philosophical guide, part miscellany, part reminiscence, The Tao of Travel enumerates "The Contents of Some Travelers' Bags" and exposes "Writers Who Wrote about Places They Never Visited"; tracks extreme journeys in "Travel as an Ordeal" and highlights some of "Travelers' Favorite Places."

Excerpts from the best of Theroux's own work are interspersed with selections from travelers both familiar and unexpected: Vladimir Nabokov, J.R.R. Tolkien, Samuel Johnson, Eudora Welty, Evelyn Waugh, Isak Dinesen, Charles Dickens, James Baldwin, Henry David Thoreau, Pico Iyer, Mark Twain, Anton Chekhov, Bruce Chatwin, John McPhee, Freya Stark, Peter Matthiessen, Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway.

The Tao of Travel is a unique tribute to the pleasures and pains of travel in its golden age.
