This book works well on a number of levels. I bought it during an out of season lust for snow and found it to be a wonderfully escapist read. The photos and writing style really place you well in each of the destinations. I also like the way the photos are not purely journalistic but quite 'social'.
Now that it's time to go skiing, the information packed into this book is helping me with new ideas achievable in an ambitious weekend. One criticism is that it does rather assume that you are starting your white weekend from London.
