"Crams Travel 101 into one slender volume. . . . While you're packing, pack this book."
-American Way magazine
Now in a completely updated second edition, The Woman Road Warrior teaches women the art of expert business travel and gives them the tools they need to become experts themselves. Tailored specifically to the needs of modern businesswomen, it's a practical, easy-to-use resource that breaks down travel and accommodation options and offers help while troubleshooting the snags that crop up along the road. Author Kathleen Ameche reveals the ins and outs of every aspect of the business-travel process: using a travel agent or planning on your own; gaining access to the amenities offered by the different airlines; weighing airfare flexibility against a highly variable schedule; handling airport security, luggage check-in, and the boarding process; choosing other modes of transport-train, bus, car-not only as alternatives to air travel but also for getting around the destination city; and much more. Ameche pays particular attention to issues of special importance to the woman road warrior: staying comfortable and safe while traveling solo, eating right and staying fit while on the road, and maintaining family life and household operations back home. The book also features an entirely new section focused on the unique challenges faced by global business travelers.
