Going on holiday? Never been there before? Wan't to avoid being robbed, maimed, killed or exposed to the art of mime? Then don't forget your "Where not to go!" guide book.

Packed with hundreds of dodgy locales and locals, to be avoided, this invaluable publication will not make your stay perfect but it will increase your chances of coming back alive.

Features include: Which parts of your destination to avoid completely. Where not to park your car. Which cash machines not to use on a night time. Which pubs are 'local',

Also includes useful phrases to help you get out of trouble if you get into it.

for example: Los Angeles: 'The black man went that way officer' Harare 'The white man went that way officer' London: 'I'm not Jamie Oliver'

The 'Where not to go!' series is available in all good bookshops and some rubbish ones as well
