Time Out's "The World's greatest cities" is an ode to the greatest cities of the globe that influenced humanity from the antiquity up to the latest centuries. Do not think that its just a description of the fanciest ones like NY, Paris, London or Berlin. In this book, there are urban diamonds that we would not even remember that they existed. However, the book is artistically illustrated with lovely pictures of each city not from the tourist's or the journalist's perspective but from the local's; a fact that makes it more desirable. Finally, in each city there is a fine description with cosy language that gives instantly to the reader, the past, the present and the future expectations of the city and it's citizens. Definitely not a travel guide but a hymn to the urban civilization.

HASH(0xa2dab390) out of 5 stars Makes me want to travel 14 July 2011

A good coffee table book, and a good conversation (argument) starter too! Because the cities are ranked across several categories, most people will find something surprising here. It's written in a manner to give you a "slice of life" feel for each city rather than singing the praises of all that's good about each city. As a result, you just get a glimpse of each city and not a lot of sense as to why they're ranked where they are. But it's always interesting and it's definitely making me want to round out my visits to the Top 10 (I'm halfway there).

I bought this book as a birthday gift for my wife who is a lifelong traveler. She uses this to remember many of her trips that she has taken and to get ideas of future trips! A great book.
