    1. Useful and informative. Looking forward to my trip and being ready to behave as a proper guest. Sad that some of the things needed to be said at all, but in my line of work, I can't say that I am shocked that people generally are rude and self-centered.


    2. Insider Icelandic infoI enjoyed this book of Alda's immensely, although with some feeling of shame, being a part of the problem by having visited, fallen in love with, and revisited and revisited Iceland. Her early paragraph about tourists like myself who love the beautiful country but are dismayed to see others treat it with such casual disregard was such a relief. Alda is informative, entertaining, and above all kind. But it's hard to escape the fact that I'm a part of this lumbering, ignorant [...]


    3. The mandatory handbook for anyone visiting IcelandI bought this book a few minutes before boarding my flight to Iceland. It proved to be a very good resource about the country and how we tourists have affected it. It is very short and does not go into too many details on history etc, but it covers important topics about staying safe, respecting nature and being a responsible tourist.


    4. Myths debunkedIf the author is correct tourism at recent levels is a social and ecological disaster for Iceland, profiting a small group of corrupt oligarchs at the expense of the public patrimony. Iceland: the banana republic of the North. One wonders why a small closely knit society allows such base behaviour.


    5. Overall, enjoyed the book. Good perspective on the Iceland culture, some recent history, what to expect when traveling to Iceland. I will be traveling to Iceland. Some sections ( like the parts on driving in the country) were not as relevant to me since I'll be taking smaller tours, so I skipped past it. Still good information regardless.


    6. Very interesting overview of impact of tourism on Iceland in recent years. Dives into the positive (has helped the economy recover since the crash) and the negative (impact on the environment, corruption, furthering the income gap, etc.) Quick read and would definitely recommend if you're traveling to Iceland, but this book is not a travel guide.


    7. wonderful guide to iceland and its cultural idiosyncrasies, insightful writing on political situations that foreigners can understand, and ultimately a must read for anyone traveling to iceland
