The world of NSITT is one where you're more likely to find a cockroach on your pillow than a complimentary mint, a world where you take your life in your own hands every time you get on a bus, a world where everything goes wrong, and you still end up loving every minute of it.
No Shitting In The Toilet is named after a sign Peter Moore saw on the door of the lavatory at Jack's Cafe in Dali, Yunnan Province, in China. It's a sign that encapsulated his travel philosophy: that things never quite turn out as you expect. You end up in situations that defy logic, rational thought and, quite often, general well-being - and yet you have a brilliant time, not in spite of these situations, but because of them. And this is the philosophy behind this book and the reason why it isn't really a normal travel guide. OK, it might look like one in its structure and choice of topics, but in fact it's quite the opposite. Instead of practical hints, it gives you impractical ones (How to avoid jet lag - avoid jets ...) and rather than tell you the best places to stay, it tells you the worst. Instead of celebrating transcendental travel experiences, it revels in the most demeaning ones (On checking the hygiene in restaurants: there are 2 things you don't really want to see in life. The first is your parents having sex. The second is the state of the kitchen in restaurants catering for backpackers.). But in that sense NSITT is more in touch with the way things really are. The world of NSITT is one where you're more likely to find a cockroach on your pillow than a complimentary mint, a world where you take your life in your own hands every time you get on a bus, a world where everything goes wrong, and you still end up loving every minute of it. Based on the author's award-winning travel website, NSITT is not only hugely entertaining but also eminently practical, with advice on everything from Backpacking and Souvenirs, to Sex and Romance and Health and Eating (and some words of advice for vegetarians: hope you like rice...).

"'Peter Moore is the genuine article, a traveller's traveller'" * FHM * "'This infinitely handy, irreverent bullet-pointed code of conduct (and misconduct) abroad revels in a kind of anti-Wish You Were Here ethos. Expect the worse, then turn to this to find ideas, answers and, best of all, comfort in the sod's law of holiday-going'" * The Scotsman * "'Seasoned travellers will find plenty to relate to in this witty and observant book, especially the gentle dig at some of the more conventional guides'" * Lancashire Evening Post * "'It's not a run-of-the-mill travel book, oh no, but a book no traveller can do without'" * Virginstudent.com * "'Definitely a book to take with you as an accompaniment to a detailed travel guide, or even better, a humorous reminder of your trip when you get back home...well worth a read' " * Outland Website *
