Packing light is once again& a la mode. As the author Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said: 'He who would travel happily, must travel light.' When it comes to your suitcase, less really is more, leaving you light on your feet and free to immerse yourself in local culture and nature without being weighed down. However, regarded as an art, a science, or even a necessary evil, packing is a task all travellers must tackle before their journey even begins, yet not many of us, do it well or approach it with any sense of pleasure.
Let us fix that! Step away from that mountainous pile of clothing, get up off that suitcase you're trying to squash shut, and allow this book to unclutter your path to luggage liberation. Indeed, packing light can take more time and strategy. Happily, this guide will teach you the skills to decide what is absolutely necessary and what can be done without.

I felt cheated by this stuff. Sorry, Lonely Planet, I expected much more from you.
I would not disagree with other reviewers, who state that this is more of a magazine article than a book. However, for those, like my son, who are just embarking on the adventure of travel alone, or needing to pack on their own, without having me around to do it for him, then this is a very useful guide to things which may seem obvious, but which may simply not occur. Also, there are great ideas on how to get children to learn to pack themselves, which teaches useful skills. Overall, I would say that, if you have already travelled/packed a lot, you probably will not need this. If you are thinking of buying it for an older child, who wants to pack their overnight case for a playdate, or for your teenage, travelling abroad for the first time, this would be a useful read.
