Format: Hardcover
Hot on the heels of The Travel Book - an awe-inspiring collection of journeys through every country on earth, comes this similarly wondrous offering from Lonely Planet. As with its global predecessor, The Cities Book is a hefty pictorial hardback that delves into the top 200 cities on earth and, as well as some stunning photography, it doles out helpful pointers on a city's strengths and weaknesses as well as where to eat and what to see. To call this a coffee-table book feels like a slight injustice, but it's incredible attention to detail and the sheer weight of this volume with leave you something close to breathless.

The Cities Book is a wonderfull brief look at 200 cities around the world. As I go on 5-6 city trips a year I have found it invaluable as a quick quide to where to visit next. But oh dear, there are so many mistakes here. Both descriptions of cities, misnamed photos, innacurate statistics. Did no one ever proof read this book. Please Lonely Planet, send me the next one and I'll do it for free!

This is a really readable interesting book - it is not too text heavy! I love sitting in the garden flicking through it deciding which city I'd like to visit next. My only gripe is with the photographs - having visited many of cities in the book I think there are more stunning buildings that could have been photographed (but then I suppose these pictures are found in all guide books!) Certainly by no means comprehensive but will definitely get the wanderlust in you going.

This book is great and I would've awarded 5 stars, but for the fact that they list the photo in the Glasgow section as Buchanan Street, when it is not (and Buchanan Street is actually pedestrianised). A small gripe, but when each city has only a few photos to illustrate, they should be accurate.

This is a good book that I'd recommend. It can give you inspiration to visit a whole range of new places. It's written well enough and provides some useful information, although it shouldn't be your single reference for a destination.

The reason why I didn't give it a 5 is that I bought it based on a recommendation from a camera magazine. I was expecting more photographs from the destinations but there weren't as many as I hoped for. A few less destinations and a few more pictures would have suited me.

Still worth buying though.
