My book, The Titanic Awards (Perigee, May 4, 2010), takes a different approach to the spectacular underachievements in travel by celebrating them. There are "World's Worst" survey results of all things plane, train, automobile and tourism. There are also entertaining hand-picked tales of incompetence and some of the worst offenders from various official studies. Plus you'll find "personal worsts" from exclusive interviews with famous travelers, from Lonely Planet's Tony Wheeler to National Geographic Traveler's Editor-in-Chief Keith Bellows. Enjoy this list!
SURVEY INFO: Over 2000 people from more than 80 countries took the survey
