1001 Places for the filthy Rich!, 8 May 2009
I am a very experienced traveller who has lived overseas for decades. This book would be great for a recently unemployed CEO who has much more money than sense. The book covers all the well known spots around the world but totally ignores many other fine and beautiful places located nearby. The Hotels and resorts listed are all at the top of the price lists- no surprise here since Ms. Schulz writes for Conde' Nast Traveler, Departures, etc. Above the title of the book reads: On and Off the Beaten Path. I doubt if Ms. Schulz has ever been off the beaten path and certainly budget travelers and backpackers should save their money and find a more useful guide.
