Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Lonely Planet is lonely no more. After forty years, this footloose combine is the largest travel book publisher on the planet. All four decades of experience, expertise, and passion come alive in this radiant, large-scale pictorial of the world's most beautiful and mind-boggling natural wonders; from iced-capped mountains to forests so dense that they possess a mythic aura.

From the Publisher
The Daily Beast, December 2013

“These photographs are meant to inspire wanderlust and they are successful in doing just that.”

Every Day with Rachael Ray, December 2013

“A friend once said, ‘The world is painfully full of beautiful places.’ This book is a coffee table-size testament to that idea.”

ForeWord Reviews, November 30, 2013

“Nature photography at its highest level serves to both overwhelm our senses and deepen our relationship with this planet, our home. To describe this book as anything less than the end-all coffee table book would be an injustice.”

Alaskan Apple Users Group Blog, November 26, 2013

“I found reading the book more of a meditation, seeing our amazing planet, discovering places I’d only heard about, and yet wanting to know more.”

GeekDad, November 12, 2013

“In addition to the colorful photos, you can sense the sounds, smells, and feelings that your eyes can’t quite experience on their own. Page after page of gorgeous photography will leave you speechless and aching to travel, pick up a camera, or both. . . . Celebrate nature, wildlife, and the masterpieces of Man as you page through this book.”

PopSugar, November 1, 2013

“From the land to the sea, Lonely Planet’s Beautiful World features handpicked photographs that can only bring one saying to mind: ‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’ If you have a case of wanderlust, the following destinations have views like you've never seen before.”

City Style & Living, November 2013

“It creates a sense of place through iconic images of destinations on every continent.”

Refinery29, October 14, 2013

“Lonely Planet's new coffee table book will cure your wanderlust.”
