'a wicked ear for phrases and accents ... McCrum is perceptive and disarmingly honest ... an enjoyable read, and the best I've read on Australia for a long time'
(WANDERLUST)

'what sets his tales above the level of ordinary travelogue is his acute eye and ear ... a lighthearted, likeable miscellany from a journey you wish you were taking yourself'
(LITERARY REVIEW)

'McCrum takes in each of the seven states and has some memorable encounters ... No Worries is infused with the spirit of Australia: breezy, accepting, humorous'
(THE TIMES)

'witty and engaging... he meets a varied cast of characters and he hears their voices well'
(THE INDEPENDENT)

'No Worries blends a very funny account of his jaunt around the vast country by plane, train, bus and jalopy with a serious, state-of-the-nation portrait of modern Australia... the mix is artfully judged'
(HAMPSTEAD AND HIGHGATE EXPRESS)

'This account is earthy, funny, totally interesting ... I'd recommend it as an essential read to everyone planning a walkabout Down Under.'
(SOUTH WALES ARGUS)

'A brilliantly written, hilarious portrait of this vast country ... you'll find it virtually impossible to put down'
(GEOGRAPHICAL MAGAZINE )
