Briefly, it’s about how to claim compensation for anything that goes wrong on your travels.
Comments: When I downloaded the book, I thought that the subtitle meant “interior riches”, that the book is about having a positive attitude and finding happiness in situations of adversity. How wrong I was! It’s about getting every possible penny, or something else material, in compensation from every possible mishap. The authors must be the customers from hell. Hotels, restaurants, airlines… watch out, because if the slightest thing is not altogether to their liking and pleasure, they’ll screw you for it.
I really don’t know how anyone could go through life with this attitude and be happy.
