Curiosity can instantly connect you with anyone. It’s what sets us apart from robots and it’s a key factor behind curing cancer, stopping terrorism, and resolving interpersonal conflicts. Meanwhile, international travel is the ideal laboratory for putting your curiosity to work.
This is a book about the power of curiosity to improve the way we travel. Rooted in decades of research on curiosity and cultural intelligence, David Livermore explores the key research behind curiosity and exemplifies it through exploring the dilemmas faced when traveling abroad. These include quandaries like:

Why do people always cut in line here?
Why do they eat the fish eye?
Why would someone give me the wrong directions instead of just telling me they don't know?

In addition, the book provides practical travel tips on everything from exchanging money, traveling on a budget, and dealing with jet lag. This book will equip you to leverage the power of curiosity and travel to make you happier, to connect with others, and to solve problems big and small.
