OK for an Idle Browse,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1001: Historic Sites You Must See Before You Die (Paperback)Obviously, this is not a book to sit and read through, but to pick up now and then. Good for a dentist's waiting room, though unlikely to allay my stress. The entries are arbitrary and superficial, probably a result of the size of the undertaking combined with an obvious American influence. Fine, maybe, for pointers ahead of a trip (or to see what you missed when you get home), but definitely not a guide book or a reference source. I came across the similar '1001 Buildings .... ....' in a café; that might have been a more absorbing purchase.
