“I hope that my style and (particularly) the outstanding potential for readers to follow up,” Cross says, “as provided by the large number of fine URLs in the practicalities pages, make my book a bit special.”

David Cross’ travel book, “Happy Travels with a ‘Dodgy’ Heart” (published by AuthorHouse) – which is getting a new marketing push – reports on his travels to numerous western and northern European countries and to Peru from 1995 to 2005 after suffering major heart problems in 1995.

Cross introduces his book with this quote: “A well known summary for job applications is ‘Fully fit; have car; will travel.’ A similar summary, adapted to my situation, might be ‘Not fully fit; don’t drive; love travel.’” This sentiment aptly summarizes the tone of the entire book, which is a wholesome and personal recollection of a lifetime of travel.

“Happy Travels with a ‘Dodgy’ Heart” contains plenty of photos from Cross’ travels around the world. In addition, each narrative chapter is followed by a separate practicalities page that includes must-sees, must-dos, URLs of places to stay or eat – all of which the author experienced during his travels.

“I hope that my style and (particularly) the outstanding potential for readers to follow up,” Cross says, “as provided by the large number of fine URLs in the practicalities pages, make my book a bit special.”

Cross knows that his book will encourage readers to overcome the common malaise that often keeps them from getting out and enjoying the wonders of the world. “Happy Travels with a ‘Dodgy’ Heart,” he believes, shows “…what can be done and how,” and proves that nothing – not even a dodgy heart – should keep one indoors.
