And because of the great reviews!
Here are some examples from Amazon:
A Survival Guide to the Prado Museum. Reviewed by David M on July
23, 2018. ''This book was helpful to have in preparation
for our trip to the Prado. We studied the paintings
ahead of time using the book. When we visited the
Prado, I had the book in my purse to help us locate
the works of art discussed in the book. The book
lists the locations of all the paintings, which
is very helpful, especially towards the end of
a visit when you are tired and want to make sure
you have seen everything you want to see.''

A Survival Guide to the Portuguese Camino
in Galicia. Reviewed by Walter Peake on April
26, 2018. ''What a fine guide to a fine walk! I
just returned home following my walk from Valenca
to Santiago de Compostela, and I used this book
every single day. Jeffery provides wonderful insights
and tips that helped to make my Camino everything
that I'd hoped it would be. Unlike other guidebooks,
this 'survival guide' helped me to grasp some sense
of context for the things that I saw and experienced. Vendors,
cafe owners, and others along the way were very
familiar with Jeffery, and spoke highly of his
regular visits. It was nice to know that he is
and has been a frequent visitor in the establishments
that he mentions in the book. Thanks again Jeffery
for helping to get me from one end of the walk
to the other.''

A Survival Guide to the Thyssen. Reviewed by Joseph Delano Robles
on July 2, 2017. ''Heralded as one of the world's
most important museum because of its extensive
chronologically arranged private collection, the
thyssen is a haven for art fanatics and something
that shouldn't be missed if you're visiting Madrid.
Each painting was painstakingly curated and tells
stories of the lives of our history's greatest painters, how their
lives are, people around them and the era or century they were living
in. Overwhelming as it may all sound Barrerra's "A
Survival guide to the Thyssen" provides an entertaining bird's
eye view of what to expect from this extensive
and awe-inspiring collection!''
