The Travel Book: A Journey Through Every Country in the World
the most avid readers of travel guides and travel
literature will not have encountered a book quite like
this one. It is huge and heavy but reasonably priced, and
it is vastly informative, which is its calling card. All
the writers who contribute to the Lonely Planet travel
guide series have put heads, knowledge, and experience
together and come up with an A-Z series of capsule
profiles of every country in the world, 230 in number.
Each country gets a two-page spread, on which are placed,
like luscious dishes set before one at a feast,
illustrations that are typical of Lonely Planet's unique,
non-picture-postcard brand of shots. The accompanying text
presents a cogent rundown of the best experiences for
gaining the essence of the place.
