Review

"It just reminds me how much of the world there is still to see" - Tony Wheeler, Lonely Planet founder, 145 countries visited and counting ... 'This is a stunning book. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, it's a classic coffee table book, best perused on a rainy afternoon with a cup of coffee in one hand and your passport in the other, just in case you get the urge to flee the country.' Digital Camera Magazine. At a time when the world feels as if its becoming a larger, more divided and increasingly impossible place to understand, let alone discover, The Travel Book is a reminder that the world is truly an amazing place.' The Age (Melbourne, Australia)

I've bought this book several times over, for myself and as gifts. Great coffee table book to peruse through and get ideas for the next upcoming travel destinations. Just enough information for inspiration. Next step is to take your research further on site specific web pages. Pictures are amazing. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty picture book Jan. 7 2012
By Sporty
Format:Paperback
I was expecting some useful travel info - but this book is pretty much a large coffee table picture book. It is filled with 100's of National Geographic type photo's from every country in the world and a few sentences of random blurbs. Once you have looked at all the pictures, there isn't much further use for it.

I read this book every morning as I eat my cereal. It is not only an amazing coffee table book but an awesome ice breaker and conversation starter when new people come over. Great pictures, awesome notes and I especially like the Random fact for each country.
