Pour certains la nostalgie du pays de notre enfance reste cantonnée à quelques souvenirs qui s'estompent au fil des années. Mais cette Alexandrie là, celle de Robert Naggar, continue de vibrer en une fresque tellement actuelle et vivante. Elle se déroule au fur et à mesure de ses pérégrinations pour retrouver les racines de sa famille qui remontent bien loin dans l'histoire de cette région du monde. Le foisonnement culturel est tel que j'ai tout lu, le sourire aux lèvres. Bien écrit comme d'habitude en une prose simple et vraie, pleine de passion et de tendresse même dans ces moments où auraient pu s'installer des doutes sur l'ampleur de la tâche à accomplir. Passionant et émouvant.

Business travel has been my main activity for the past 45 years. I really never thought about it as “fun” but I must admit that, in his superb writing style, Robert Naggar has the talent to make it a riot! Please don’t tell your boss about the book because if you do, you might find it hard thereafter to get paid for your trips! Good job Naggar! Airport security searches and other travel pains will never be the same again: I’ll laugh about them all the way home! Joseph Ninio, businessman, Monte-Carlo.
While trawling the Kindle store for something amusing to read on a train journey, I came across Robert Naggar's compilation of humorous
short stories about some of his travel experiences during the course of a long business career. I downloaded a sample, but it didn't take long for me to want to buy the book. Not just a seasoned traveller, Naggar is also multilingual and knowledgeable about the customs and lifestyles of many of the countries he has visited, which makes the stories informative and interesting as well as funny. I couldn't put the book down until I'd read them all.
What I enjoyed most was his wicked sense of humour. Some of the absurd experiences he describes are hilarious, all the funnier because they happen to be true. Without being unkind, he doesn't mince his words or give way to political correctness when describing people and situations and I found myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions. His writing is acutely visual which is why the cameos are so situationally comical.
If you want a good laugh and an interesting read you will love this book. I did!
I laughed out loud !
“After reading his book and often laughing out loud in the process, I fully associate with Robert Naggar’s “Business travel can be fun”. As a world traveler, one cannot avoid problems. I had many and, after looking back on them, I now wish I could have seen them with the same eyes and recount them with the same vivacity and humor as Naggar’s prose. An exceptionally funny and enriching book.

After reading this book, it's now so relaxing to travel !
“Never in my wildest dreams would I have said that traveling from New-York to Tokyo or from Sao Paolo to Paris for business would be fun. After reading this book, I realize how much I missed. I now manage to turn even highly upsetting situation into humorous moments. Naggar has a knack of making one laugh at most “travel problems”. When travel is part of one’s life, that is so relaxing!
