More About This Book

Overview

A stimulating sourcebook of destinations for the seasoned traveler and the armchair explorer alike, with 250 entries on the world's "must-visit" cities and 500 stunning photos.

The Book of Cities is an inspiring gazetteer of the world's cities--a celebration of their diversity, energy, and culture. We set off from the Greenwich meridian in London and head west (in longitudinal order), visiting the Americas and beyond. We explore all the classic metropolitan destinations--New York, Paris, Rio, Rome, Tokyo--and also take in those that are lesser known. Each of the 250 cities is portrayed in evocative photos and lively commentary that capture the character of the place--the particular blend of history, topography, climate, customs, and cuisine that make it distinctive. Insights are also offered in nuggets of information on the topography and residents as well as quotes from the famously well-traveled. The Book of Cities is the perfect companion to inspire a first visit, to refresh memories of journeys past, or to fire up the imagination of anyone with wanderlust.

    Nice book

    I am a Travel Channel junkie, so any book that is colorful and full of photographs, I am totally grabbing it off the shelves. Amazing value.

    International Flare

    I purchased this book as a gift to a friend. I consider myself to be well traveled, and found this book interesting, however perhaps better suited for those who are considering traveling abroad. While it was informative, I believe that it is a good preview of different cities. Globetrotters may not find it to be extremely practical as it does not provide great insight. It is a glance at multiple international destinations, so it is a nice text to promote and inspire travel overseas.

    Big Cities Small Print

    I like this book a lot but I think the font got smaller to accomodate the 2 page limit for each city. One of the pages is a great picture showing the "quintessence" of the city seen by the author.
