I've been to some of the cities that the book mentions. The photo journalists who helped author the book did a great job in accurately describing the feel of the cities, its culture and its people. The photos are wonderfully done. I would have added a few more cities to the list of 200 and maybe a few more tourist-like photos, only because you want to get the feeling of the must-see locations, places you don't want to miss.
