Party down, dude

If you want a book that is guaranteed to make you want to get up off the couch, try World Party: the rough guide to the world’s best festivals. Every picture in this book is about having a good time – movement, music, color, and beauty. The images, even though they're not large, just leap off the page at you, making the entire book feel vibrant. The festivals and parties listed in this book span the globe (with the exception of Antarctica, go figure) and touch on hundreds of different cultures and religions, but they all share the same basic elements: music, alcohol and dangerous animals. Cheese-rolling, wife-carrying, camel-riding, and mass-bathing with 70 million (yeah, that’s million) other people are just some of the ways to add a little zest to your life. I actually found an event in this book that I had attended (not the Oil Wrestling Championships, keep guessing). This book is educational, entertaining, and inspiring. Go somewhere, anywhere and do something, anything!
