Synopsis:

The follow-up to Lonely Planet's hit The Book of Everything, Instant Expert contains all that a world traveller needs to know. It's witty and full of brilliant illustrations of all types by noted infographics illustrator Nigel Holmes.

Want to know how to dive for pearls, cure toothache, mix a mean cocktail and more? Be an instant expert in 100 occupations and equip yourself for a world of adventurous travel with this how-to handbook.

About Lonely Planet: Started in 1973, Lonely Planet has become the world's leading travel guide publisher with guidebooks to every destination on the planet, as well as an award-winning website, a suite of mobile and digital travel products, and a dedicated traveller community. Lonely Planet's mission is to enable curious travellers to experience the world and to truly get to the heart of the places they find themselves in.

TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards 2012 winner in Favorite Travel Guide category

'Lonely Planet guides are, quite simply, like no other.' - New York Times

'Lonely Planet. It's on everyone's bookshelves; it's in every traveller's hands. It's on mobile phones. It's on the Internet. It's everywhere, and it's telling entire generations of people how to travel the world.' - Fairfax Media (Australia)

Review: Delightful, application of sign-symbol illustrations and explanatory charts and graphics... In economical how-to steps, Holmes...clearly details almost any task you could imagine, from being a bouncer (or "crowd-controller") to panning for gold to building sand castles. Not everything is easy, but everything Holmes covers is fascinating.' (New York Times Book Review)

Instant Expert is my new favorite book. Not a travel book per se, it invests at least two pages each to a slew of topics that can make you sound more educated... Written with a heavy dose of humor, the author quickly teaches you to be a flight attendant, an arthroscopic surgeon, a caber tosser, a book binder, a Japanese tea master, and a cat. Even if you have no inclination to be anything but what you are, this book is an entertaining and interesting read. You will learn something new, and be able to insert helpful tidbits of information into conversation at your next cocktail party or game night...Instant Expert...is worth every penny. Enjoy yourself and learn a lot by perusing this fun, useful reference book.' (GeekDad)
