Best-selling author publishes free e-book to standardize COVID-safe business travel protocol
From handbags and flight socks to remotes and hangers, New York Times bestselling author and behavioral psychologist Martin Lindstrom sheds light on the pitfalls to avoid when traveling in this new COVID-19 world.
Lindstrom’s new Safe Business Travel Advice eBook Against COVID is titled “Travel the Truth and Lies Without a Mask and features surprising hygiene statistics to normalize safe travel.”
The book provides those traveling in this COVID-19 era with practical advice on how to confidently navigate the hidden pitfalls of international travel. Lindstrom eschews alarmism in favor of a practical guide on how to navigate the patchwork of conflicting international regulations, as well as the physical spaces we pass through on our travels.
As the global appetite for travel picks up, there is a huge demand for a reliable and independent source of information and advice regarding COVID-19 security. As a regular globetrotter, Lindstrom’s mission is to uncover the secrets of safe travel, while telling very entertaining, if slightly frustrating, stories.

Typically, the stains that we perceive as the most contaminated are often the most hygienic, simply because of the care we exercise. And so it is in this vein that Lindstrom consults with pilots, airlines, hotel chains on how to change our behaviors to make new hygiene routines entrench habits, rather than everyday annoyances.
“The travel world we once knew is not the same and like everyone else, I started to wonder what the reality of travel is these days,” said Lindstrom.
“So I set out to write a book that will provide people with practical advice as they embark on their first travel adventure in our ‘new normal world’. In these uncertain times, one thing is certain is that a consumer’s number one priority is their health and safety.
The book was written in association with the subject matter experts at Intertek Protek.
