This book had some SERIOUS editing flaws I m not talking about spelling errors or missing spaces I mean entire sections that were copied from one journey to another and photograph captions that talked about the wrong region of the world The journeys themselves were interesting, especially the history behind some of them, but the editing and the formulaic setup made this a coffee table reference book when I was looking for a bit of non fiction I could read cover to cover The descriptions were This book had some SERIOUS editing flaws I m not talking about spelling

Great book for inspiration and travelling ideas Full of great pictures and just the right amount of information to entice you to travel and learnabout the places The only downside to this book is the disappointment that you re not able to go now, right at this very second. If you need to feed your wanderlust with a coffee table type book that can be enjoyed in short visits, this book what you re looking for. Interesting selection of adventurous journeys Great pictures let down by frothy text and some factual inaccuracies.
