I do things with words, mainly English and Arabic

Slightly more pleasant things

After that post about my most recent… well, not really a troll. More of a crypto-troll. But being subtle about it doesn’t make you any less of a malign timewaster. Anyway, by way of an antidote here is some of the rather nicer feedback the Bradt Guide to Palestine has been getting from people who actually know a bit about what they’re commenting on.
For instance, this from Jonatan Stanczak of the Freedom Theatre in Jenin:

“I live in Jenin in the north West Bank and this is a very important book… I’ve already had plenty of use of this book. Recommended to anyone that has travelled or planning to travel Palestine.”

And this from Stefan Szepesi, author of a soon-to-be-published book of hikes in the West Bank:

“finally, finally I can toss away all the guide books that include Palestine only as a clumsy rushed annex at the back.”

And this from a tour group leader, recently back from the West Bank:

“I am just back from there and my groups were moaning about their guide (Lonely Planet one, useless for Palestine!)”

Thanks to all…
