Not a book to rely on, but suitable for light browsing,
This review is from: 1,000 Places to See Before You Die (Paperback)
This book is engaging in as much as it seduces you with descriptions of places you have never been to but would like to visit. However, it falls down on detail, on its tendency to mention (or plug) the most luxurious accomodation, on its very Americanised style and perspective and - as other reviewers have mentioned - on its ludicrous shortcomings in coverage of parts of the world east of Europe and where English is not the primary language.
Fun to have this book in the loo for guests to read, but this is not a serious explorers volume.
