The photography in this book is stunning, just absolutely gorgeous. There's a fairly even split between photos and the fascinating write-up of the author's cycle from the UK all the way to Hong Kong across mountains, deserts, tropics, and snowy winters, even across countries most people haven't heard of. And after your wanderlust is sufficiently ignited, there's plenty of informative sections peppered throughout on how to go on your own bicycle tour (whether that's for a weekend or a year+) , what you should know about bikes, repairs, planning, packing, etc.
Finally and very importantly for me in travel books, Joshua Cunningham doesn't come across as arrogant or douchey, unlike some other travel writers who think they're the only person to have an impressive adventure (*cough*Paul Theroux*cough*).
So yeah. I'm really, really taken with this book. It was just such a fun, interesting read. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who likes travelling, bikes, or coffee table books.
