Comments about Lonely Planet : The Travel Book:

A disappointing summary of ever country on earth, complete with pretty average supporting photography (I have seen much better from this publisher). The information is so sparse you really don't get much of a sense of what any country is about and therefore probably not sure which ones you should go and visit. A nice overview of our world for the mildly intelligent non-traveller and a great gift idea of course. I didn't like this book at all . Go and buy LP's "A Beautiful World", at least that has beautiful photographs and isn't trying to be a below par encyclopaedia.
