Introducing the Eighth Wonder of travel books, the New York Times bestseller that's been hailed by CBS-TV as one of the best books of the year and praised by Newsweek as  the "book that tells you what's beautiful, what's inspiring, what's fun and what's just unforgettable everywhere on earth."

Publishers Weekly
This hefty volume reminds vacationers that hot tourist spots are small percentage of what's worth seeing out there. A quick sampling: Venice's Cipriani Hotel; California's Monterey Peninsula; the Lewis and Clark Trail in Oregon; the Great Wall of China; Robert Louis Stevenson's home in Western Samoa; and the Alhambra in Andalusia, Spain. Veteran travel guide writer Schultz divides the book geographically, presenting a little less than a page on each location. Each entry lists exactly where to find the spot (e.g. Moorea is located "12 miles/19 km northwest of Tahiti; 10 minutes by air, 1 hour by boat") and when to go (e.g., if you want to check out The Complete Fly Fisher hotel in Montana, "May and Sept.-Oct. offer productive angling in a solitary setting"). This is an excellent resource for the intrepid traveler. (Sept. 23) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

INTRODUCTION

The Story of This Book

Is it nature or nurture that sends a person out onto the Road—that whispers in one’s ear that it’s time to take off and make for the horizon, just to see what’s out there?

The urge to travel—to open our minds and move beyond the familiar—is as old as man himself. It’s what drove the ancient Romans to visit Athens’s Acropolis and Verona’s amphitheater. It’s what sent Marco Polo off on his momentous journey east, and what moved St. Augustine of Hippo to write, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only one page.” Whether we go to London for the weekend or to a place that’s utterly alien, travel changes us, sometimes superficially, sometimes profoundly. It is a classroom without walls.

I can’t speak for everyone, but I can tell you about my own wanderlust. Family legend (never proven) has it that we’re somehow related to Mark Twain, America’s great storyteller and also one of the preeminent globetrotters of his day. How then to explain my mother’s reaction when I had my own first Great Adventure?

It was the late 1950s, and Atlantic City was as exotic and unknown to me as Shangri-la—all sand and sea, hotels and boardwalk, and the intimation of greater things just beyond what I could see from the family beach blanket. I set off at the first opportunity, but after what seemed only a few precious minutes of intoxicating discovery (in fact several hours), I was snatched up by my apoplectic mother and a cadre of relieved lifeguards and brought back to the roost. This is my earliest memory: I had heard the siren call of the great, global beyond, and I had answered. I was hooked. I was four.

Fast-forward to college graduation. Campus buddies were heading straight for Wall Street apprenticeships, international banking programs, and family business obligations, but I made a beeline for the airport and my own private Grand Tour through the marvels of Italy and its neighbors. Could one make a living off la dolce vita? I was amazed when my first articles got published, but then I realized: one could. Many guidebooks and innumerable articles later, I found myself at a round table facing publisher Peter Workman and his right-hand editor, the late Sally Kovalchick, who told me about their desire to compile the world’s most enticing and intriguing treasures between two covers, and their belief that I was up to the challenge. I was on board.

When it came time to actually do it, though—to choose from the nearly bottomless grab bag of the world’s possibilities, both legendary and unsung—I realized I was in for a lengthy battle with philosophy and methodology and all the questions anyone who flips through this book is bound to ask. How did I arrive at these particular destinations and events?

    liked the idea , I am not too fond of the outcome

    it is good to find places worth seeing I just thought they would be the local gems in stead of the major tourist traps, a lot of them highly overrated and busy. I sometimes call this book the 1000 places to avoid since there is no secret in it, even for expensive traveling. but it is a good place to start, check it out, just dont rely on it ( as a belgian for example I could add about 10 places more beautifull, exclusive and worth visiting than the ones in the book, but I guess otherwise it would become the 10 000 places to see)....

    more from this reviewer

    The must see list is smaller than 1000

    I purchased this book because of it's popularity and because of my interest in travel. My husband & I own a travel agency and I thought it might provide creative suggestions for our guests.

    Although I don't agree with many of the inclusions on the 1000 list (mostly hotels), I do appreciate the amount of research and the difficult task of taking this vast globe and narrowing it down to 1000 places to see.

    What I like about the book is the organization, the amount of detail and type of information for each item, the way she handles large city must see items, and just the fascinating travels of one person. I would like to see more active/adventure type entries.

    Although I'm not sure I would recommend as a cover to cover read, it is a useful resource and I learned about places I was not familiar.

    If you want to discuss further, there is a Travel Book Club at BN in Grand Rapids tomorrow, 2/24 at 6 pm.

    Aspire to see all 1000 places...

    This book is not a novel-read. The author recommends 1000 places to see throughout one's life. The book is well-organized and allows the reader different ways to get to the same subject. Excellent gift for the person who has everything, or needs nothing.

    Great book!

    We really like this book. A variety of places, each with a decent explanation. Everything from great coastlines and beaches, to museums and cathedrals. It is heating up our desire for travel, it provides a great goal for our travel plans! The index is great for reviewing what is in your next, or favorite travel spots. Fun to see that some of the places we have already visited are on the list, now to get out of North America and see those!

    What a great book to start dreaming!

    Anyone that is considering travel now or later, like when you retire should read this book! It is filled with great insight and information about the cities, as well as the sites and places to stay/eat. It will give you the chance to make future plans, as well as, dream about the places you will see and experience! Even if you can not travel now, it is a book with so much interesting facts, it will be hard to put down! Try it... you will like it!!!

    Truly Unique

    I have traveled a lot and have guidebooks by the dozens. But this one is written with such a quiet passion and true love and interest in the places visited and people met, that it sits apart as travel writing goes. Ms Schultz seems to know the world intimately like few others.

    I've been around the world 6 times in 13 years and - although everyone will have their own preferences and personal opinions that differ - this book I find to be the best of its kind. I have given at least a dozen as gifts and made a lot of people smile.

    Excellent Guide

    With consise, accurate descriptions of places and events, and also some good photographs, this is the best world-wide travel book that I own. Although there were a few ommisions that rather surprised me, I thought that on the whole it was very well put together. It is a guide that can be used both by experienced and beginning travellers.

    I would have liked to see a checklist ...

    it would be fun to check off each place as you visited but many places are entered multiple times (for example a place with sports, beauty, or history would be listed more than once) so it's hard to check off accurately. But there are some fantastic ideas and descriptions here.

    Awesome

    Hundreds of disparate suggestions for all kinds of budgets and as many different tastes - this book will keep every buyer busy for many lifetimes to come. From Bangkok's Night Market, to Mississippi's Natchez Trail, the Montreaux Jazz festival and Carnival in Bahia di Salvador in Brazil - the very mention of this book's title had me running to the airport. As a published author, I can only beging to imagine what it took for Ms Schultz to put this book together. A true Labor of Love.

    You Have To Buy This Book!

    Why did I wait so long? I have discovered that this is the perfect gift - for those who travel a lot or would like to, for those who search for the well known or completely obscure, looking for once-in-lifetime splurges or (this would be me) trying to see it all on a forever limited budget. There's a remarkable amount of information in this 900-page book that will keep every demographic up and going for many joy-filled years to come. Buy it today and go forth!

    An excellent encyclopedia for world travel!

    Schultz has done a remarkable job with this book! Her research and judgment are excellent on what are 'high spots' to see in each country. Her writing is tight and engaging, whetting readers' appetites and allowing them to decide if each remarkable spot is one they would want to see. This is an idea-setting and planning book, allowing the world traveler to make fundamental decisions, then go on and make more definitive plans. Bravo, Patricia! You've done something unique and remarkable!

    Disappointed in the lack of usual and unusual sites to see

    As a traveler around the world I have seen some interesting things (India) and some not so interesting things (the Marshall Islands). This book didn't cover a lot of what is out there to see. A more in-depth view of not just what is out there in the United States but also other places in the world is needed. I brought this book into work and even my co-workers where asking 'Why is this in here?' It was a really disappointing book. I thought that some of the great stuff I have seen like the glass blowers of Venezuela (unusual), and the Tokyo tower (touristy but fun) would for sure be listed and they aren't.

    1000 Thank You's To The Author

    Ms Schultz did all the homework, and I get straight A's in my next one thousand choices of vacation. I could go to just about any one of these destinations and be a very happy man. I have always felt overwhelmed and directionless by the daunting task of seeing the world --- I now have a comprehensive and pretty remarkable list of possibilities. Are these the only wonders of the world? Not hardly, but they're enough to keep me off the couch for a good while.

    There's only one bad thing about this book...

    You'll feel bad that you probably won't be able to get to all these great places!! Seriously though, the title really says it all. A comprehensive list of interesting places to see around the world. Also includes additional helpful info as well such as cost of tours, etc. I give it 5 stars easy.
