About the Author
Ever since backpacking around the Greek Islands as a student, Duncan has been fascinated by the Mediterranean and its apparently idyllic lifestyle. In an attempt to live it himself, he gave up a stuttering career in corporate journalism and moved to southern Italy in 1997. Two years later he transferred north to Rome, where he lives with his Italian wife and two young kids. These days Duncan spends much of his time running up and down the Italian peninsula, writing for Lonely Planet, but he's still drawn to the south, and heads to the Ionian Coast every summer to test the beaches and enjoy the superb Puglian food.

It also includes material on places like Paris which are a long way from the Mediterranean, even though France has part of its coast on the Med, and Marrakesh which lies inland away down towards the Atlantic.
Venice, Croatia and Istanbul may technically be "Mediterranean" but I would associate Venice and Croatia more with the Adriatic and Istanbul with the Bosphorus and Black Sea.
I think Lonely Planet would have been better producing a guide either to the Mediterranean as a whole, including places like Egypt, or one that stuck more closely to those areas with markedly Med features which Paris, Lisbon, Madrid etc definitely do not have.
