KIRKUS REVIEW

Geared for a readership of retired would-be travelers, this tourist-folder melange of travel tips and highlights around the world and in the U.S. features generally competent material on health measures, but the rest is mainly a rehash of already available information. Much of it is flat hyperbole--""Mexico is one big ongoing fiesta,"" et cetera. And it's a bit out of date in places. Greenwich Village, with its sky-high rents, is not that artsy anymore; and most porters tipped 35¢ a bag would probably drop them on the tracks. At the close of each national tour, there's a list of helpful phrases, unfortunately not broken down phonetically. The gastrointestinal set unacquainted with Hungarian might prefer to sip water rather than ask, ""Ez nagyon fuszeres?"" (Is this food very spicy?) All told, a bit of this and that for the generally well-heeled jaunting senior.
