1.5 stars -- Title concept is great but this book is SO much weaker than it could have been. Book reads as if it was written in 2 weeks as a part time, throw away project.

If you spend time in the library or a bookstore, you will have seen a wide variety of books telling you where to go, what to read, what to eat, what movies to watch, what wines to taste before you die. Author Catherine Price was tired of so many books telling her what to do with her precious spare time that she decided to write a book telling you what not to bother seeing or doing.
Her writing style is funny and quick, sometimes silly and reads like a blog. It is a nice light read if you need a book that you can put down and pick up later without having to refresh your memory. Would be a great book for trivia lovers.
So you can read this book and save yourself the time and not go to Time’s Square on New Year’s Eve, or the Beijing Museum of Tap Water, or on an overnight stay in a Korean Temple.
