Reading . . . The Ridiculous Race

Two television writers from LA race each other around the globe (without airplanes, one guy cheats), with the prize being an expensive bottle of Scotch. The Ridiculous Race is a funny, quick read and has convinced me the Trans-Siberian Railway does not make Siberia a glamorous destination. The book has a practical lesson to impart: When embarking on your race around the world, make sure you get to be the person who heads west (you don't lose time that direction).
