Billing itself as a combination of Baedeker and The Memoirs of Casanova, this book follows the author as he embarks on Pan Am's fabled Flight No. 1 Round the World. He begins in Honolulu, passes through Japan, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Istanbul, and Paris and ends his journey in London. Though he does write about his amorous adventures, the book is much more than that. It is a time capsule into the glamorous early years of jet travel, when five-star luxury in Asia could be had for a song, and Teheran still welcomed Americans.
