Bradt’s Estonia remains the only English-language guidebook to this Baltic destination, and this sixth edition reveals more of the country than any previous guide. Readers now discover why Miss Estonia likes antique cars, where Eiffel built before Paris, and why Edward VII could not land in Tallinn to meet Tsar Nicholas II and had instead to spend three days in the harbor. Offering extensive coverage of Estonia’s complex cultural history and its artists, writers and musicians, alongside comprehensive practical information, Baltic expert Neil Taylor proves that there’s much more to Estonia than the cobbled streets and cafés of Tallinn.

'A thoughtful and well-written introduction to the country.' The Lady 'A wealth of practical information.' The Yorkshire Post 'This guide provides the essential information to prepare a successful trip.' Reference Review 'A must-have as it covers not only the country, but also offers fascinating information on short trips to the neighbours.' The Baltic Times 'Excellent on culture and history.' Escape Routes 'Bradt's Estonia is best - detailed, reliable, and pleasantly opinionated.' Conde Nast Traveler, USA 'The book covers almost every visitable corner of Estonia, from the grim ruins of the old Soviet airbase at Paide near Tapa to the Hanseatic delights of the Tallinn old town. The author's affection for his subject shines through-but is never sickly.' The Economist 'Essential reading' The Daily Telegraph

Neil Taylor

Neil Taylor is an expert on brands, and how they use language. He's creative director of The Writer (www.thewriter.co.uk), and has been described as "the David Beckham of naming" (when that was still good). He's helped clients name everything from supermarkets to TV technology to toilet roll. He was previously a senior naming consultant at global brand consultancy Interbrand.

Most days, he spends his time training people to become better writers at work (when he's not writing the menus for Greek restaurant chains). He works with people like the BBC, Unilever, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Sotheby's and 3.

He's also written Search Me: The surprising success of Google, co-edited From Here to Here: Stories inspired by London's Circle Line, and is a contributor to Common Ground: Around Britain in 30 writers and 26 Letters: Illuminating the alphabet, also published by Cyan. And he's on the board of business writers' group 26.
