Product description

Review

"There will never be anyone quite like Anthony Bourdain. But World Travel offers readers the potential to travel the world as he did." -- Fortune

“Bourdain’s final book gives readers insider knowledge of his favorite global locales…. Fans of ‘Parts Unknown’ will want to add this to their spring reading lists.”  -- CNN

“[R]ead cover to cover, country by country, it is an enduring embodiment of Anthony Bourdain’s love for the whole world and a reminder of how to stack our priorities the next time we’re able to follow in his footsteps.” -- The New York Times

“It’s the World According to Tony—a browsable compendium of his matchless commentary on worthy destinations in 43 countries.”  -- People

“Charming…. Irresistible…. An exhilarating and worthwhile choice for those planning an actual trip and for stay-at-home travelers.” -- Library Journal (starred review)

"This gloriously messy miscellany of off-kilter observations and lightning-in-a-bottle insights will make one want to read, eat, and experience the world the way Bourdain did. Bourdain’s fans will devour this." -- Publishers Weekly

"An exhilarating whirlwind tour.... Anyone who loved and misses Bourdain will want this book." -- Kirkus Reviews

“A collection of remembrances mixed in with a global travel guide, this collection of city-by-city tips and restaurant suggestions uses Anthony Bourdain's own words alongside Laurie Woolever's, making this a one-of-a-kind book honoring a one-of-a-kind soul.” -- Good Morning America

“The late television host had dreams of creating a guidebook for all his favorite cities across the world, and his longtime assistant and collaborator took the notes from their singular brainstorming session and turned that dream into a reality." -- EW.COM

“[F]eels like an adventure, a delightful surprise as you turn the page from Vienna (Austria) to Bhutan.” -- Bloomberg News

About the Author

Anthony Bourdain was the author of the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo, the memoir A Cook’s Tour, and the New York Times bestsellers Kitchen Confidential, Medium Raw, and Appetites. His work appeared in the New York Times and The New Yorker. He was the host of the popular television shows No Reservations and Parts Unknown. Bourdain died in June 2018.



Laurie Woolever is a writer and editor, and spent nearly a decade assisting Anthony Bourdain, with whom she coauthored the cookbook Appetites in 2016. She’s written about food and travel for the New York Times, GQ, Food & Wine, Lucky Peach, Saveur, Dissent, Roads & Kingdoms, and others, and has worked as an editor at Art Culinaire and Wine Spectator.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong content
By Caroline on April 29, 2021
I was surprised when I got the package. It was surprisingly thin. After flipping through a few pages, I realized it was actually a 70 page brochure about tourism development in Hainan province China. The cover and the content are not related!!
