    About the author (2009)

    Arthur Frommer is generally acknowledged to be the nation's foremost travel authority. He is the founder of the Frommer travel guides, the author of a twice-weekly newspaper column syndicated by King Features, the host of a nationwide Sunday travel radio program broadcast to more than a hundred stations by the WOR network. A graduate of the Yale University Law School, his travel career began in 1957 with publication of the best-selling Europe on $5 a Day, which is widely credited with having launched a massive movement by American tourists to Europe. Among the many travel books and guides he has written is The New World of Travel, a Literary Guild selection in 1988, which was an analysis of the entire American travel industry. About him, the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel recently wrote: "What Benjamin Spock was to babies and Alfred Kinsey was to sex, Arthur Frommer became to travel. Like Spock, he wrote with the authority of experience; like Kinsey, he opened up a whole new world. And while the work of those two men has been eclipsed by others, as well as by changing times and fashions, Frommer remains a powerful, and indefatigable, force in his field."
