DescriptionA collection of hilarious and compelling insights and anecdotes, diary entries, poems, 'true' facts and cartoons on travel from Karl Pilkington, unlikely star of the Ricky Gervais Show, the world's most successful podcast - now in paperback. This is the travel book for people who don't particularly like travelling, it's Karl Pilkington, star of The Ricky Gervais Podcast Show, with a suitcase, occasionally with his passport, more often with a bemused suspicion of anything vaguely exotic, and an observant eye for the disappointments, tedium, general weirdness and absurdities of being a tourist abroad and at home.From staring at Mount Vesuvius in case it erupts and the horrors of a Lanzarote nudist beach to the curiosities to be seen in the world's weirdest museum. Told with his inimitable deadpan humour, Pilkington's stories are interspersed with fond reflections on life back in England, from Salford joy riders to what his girlfriend's mum and dad have for dinner on a Thursday (it's chops and veg. in case you're wondering).

Reviews for Happyslapped by a Jellyfish
Simply brilliant book from a simple mind
Karl thoughts are always fun to listen to or read, no matter how ridiculous or far fetched. A real feel good book and reading tales of someones life has never been such an easy yet enjoyable read.
Some of the stories are echoed from the podcasts, but this time you get to hear them in full without Ricky laughing wildly or shouting at Karl for his innocent stupidity. Highly recommend this book! by Christopher Shawunder review
