A brilliant book written by the knowledgeable and very nice Mark Smith, who knows everything there is to know about how to enjoy travelling by train, and is happy to share his expertise. Even if you don't actually travel, it's still a great book! Highly recommended.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! I've used The Man in Seat61's website before but the book adds a dimension - it's not just a reference work, it's easy to read and makes the whole subject of train travel fascinating.

This is intended as a book version of a website for travellers who want to eschew air travel in favour of the train. Perhaps a laudable aim, though high-speed rail travel is notoriously heavy on energy consumption, but one you'll only be able to follow if you have a lot of time (4 days to Marrakech rather than 4 hours), a shed load of money (I estimated the trip to Prague would cost 10 times the door-to-door plane journey) and of course if you're based in London. Yes, if you are anywhere else in the UK, this book is absolutely useless. In the time taken just to get to London from our part of the West Midlands, I could have flown to many of the destinations listed. The book contains some hints and tips about hotels and restaurants, though based on my own knowledge of German entries in the book, they are questionable at best. The book also suggests that taking multiple train journeys across Europe is somehow easier and less stressful than a single flight. Poppycock. Possibly Heathrow is the nearest circle to Hell, but St Pancras International, Paris's cross-city transfers and multiple connections en route aren't what I would term stress-free. Birmingham Airport is a doddle compared even with the train journey just to Paris. Basically if you happen to be a London-based train nut and have loads of money, this is the book for you. For anyone who is just trying to use those few precious days of vacation to relax, especially with a family, don't even consider buying this.
