Summary

It’s a fact not yet universally acknowledged, that everybody should at some point in their lives attempt to follow in the footsteps of the explorers Hume and Hovell down the Hume Highway, preferably in the company of Captain Cook, Henry Lawson, Caroline Chisholm and Ned Kelly. Backseat Drivers is a hilarious and biting satire on the intersection and byways of the past, the present and the future. 
‘A most wonderful endeavour’ – Captain James Cook 
‘Such is strife!’ – Edward Kelly 
‘I wish I’d written it’ – Henry Lawson

    Written by Terry Stevens.
    The Stories Behind 50 of the World's Great Destinations.
    
    This book will give tourists and travelers a description of each of the 50 destinations with a personal explanation giving an insight as to why, and how, these destinations consistently deliver high quality visitor experiences. It aims to show the visitor how good management and an understanding of the importance of hospitality underpins the success of each destination. Tourists are now very interested in knowing more about how the places they visit are organized and how they get things right.
    
    For the tourism professional and future destination managers and marketers, the Professional Edition will have the same core content as the Consumer Edition, exploring the destinations plus a detailed analysis of international best practice in destination management written with deep insight and research supported by extensive bibliography. It will be a major reference book on successful destination management based on my 40 years working in the industry in over 55 countries.
    
    - This is not a typical language-driven, promotional bucket-list guidebook. Stevens gives these destinations real world context. He tells us its personality, its mood and not just the reason for being but its reason for resilience, perseverance and ultimate success.' Peter Greenberg, Travel Editor/CBS News
