Each chapter of this new text centers around a story -- a traveler's account that highlights the book's main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas -- locally, regionally, and around the globe.

Chapter introductions are illustrated with 4/5(1). The Universal Traveler is an excellent reference for all creative and/or problem-solving ventures. It dispels the myth that creativity is a gift only to some at birth and convincingly outlines how it is, instead, a learnable behavior, able to become a lifelong habit/5.
