Editorial Reviews

Review

“[1,000 Places to See Before You Die] has joined the canon of classic reference tomes that earn periodic updates and cozy homes on the bookshelf next to the thesaurus. It is sure to land under many trees this year.”
- TIME.com


“Globe-trotters and vicarious adventure-seekers alike will find this full revamp of a world traveler’s bible even more informative and inspiring than before.”
 - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY


“Schultz has given her iconic guide a complete makeover. With 500 new photographs, 200 new entries and 28 new countries, the second edition is more informative, budget-conscious and user-friendly.”
 - BOOKPAGE


“It’s a big world out there, which makes it hard to decide on a vacation destination. The Internet can seem just as vast when it comes time to research. That’s why Patricia Schultz’s 1,000 Places to See Before You Die deserves a place on your bookshelf. The revised version of the 2003 bestseller is a great inspiration tool that includes both the obvious…and the less so.”
 - THE WASHINGTON POST


“She [Schultz] has managed to work a little literary magic here—and still keep her original 1,000 favorite places—by reorganizing and rewriting the content of the first edition. As always, her entries are irresistibly idiosyncratic, from ‘Beer in Belgium’ to ‘The Last Supper’ and Other Works of Leonardo Da Vinci.’”
 - CHICAGO TRIBUNE


“The names of authors who have sold millions of travel guidebooks are widely known: Fodor. Frommer. Steves. Oh, and don't forget Schultz. You know, Patricia Schultz. Still not familiar? Her signature title surely is: ‘1,000 Places to See Before You Die.’ The travel expert who launched legions of bucket lists back in 2003 (before we even knew what a bucket list was) has just come out with a massive, full-color second edition and companion iPad app.”
- SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS


“Whether they’re outdoor adventures or simply armchair travelers, readers on your holiday list will enjoy 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. Informative, clear and accessible.”
- VENTURA COUNTY STAR


“The perennial guide to iconic travel destination is back with a brand-new edition. We read the entire book, stopping to gasp, comment and bookmark several pages along the way.”
- THE HUFFINGTON POST


“Patricia Schultz’s classic bucket list book of travel musts have been updated, and the second edition has full color, revised information and about 200 new entries. It’s fun to peruse when putting together your travel wish list.”
 - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES


“For travelers who think they’ve seen it all, surely there’s a place you haven’t visited in this newly revised classic bestseller.”
 - PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE


1,000 Places to See Before You Die is out in a new full-color second edition, and should set anybody’s imagination soaring. It is a book to browse under the Snuggie on a long winter night and daydream with.”
 - DELAWARE STAR NEWS

Format: Paperback
Having worn my original copy of the book down to where pages are filled with my own notes and scribbles everywhere, I had no idea how a revision could be better than the first. But I bought it to have a "clean" copy. I am over-the-moon excited by the new inclusions and additional comments to the old ones. I have no idea how Ms Schultz managed to add so much more to the original such as places to see on the way to get to the places in the book as well as the color photos. And, it seems to me, there are many less expensive options to the uber expensive accommodations that have their own unique style and charm and are not just a "cheaper option down the road". I looove this book!

If you plan to buy Patricia Schultz's latest offering to the travelling public, make sure your passport is up-to-date! After looking through even a few of the alluring photographs and charming descriptions of places you've never even heard of and now must visit, you might also want to reconsider how much your heirs can expect to receive. Even though I know I will only actually go to a fraction of the places I've fallen in love with, thanks to Ms. Schultz, I feel, at least for a few moments of my day, that my world has been expanded every time I imagine myself in any of the entries. Can't say anything about the app that comes with the revised edition: I'm putting the Ipad $ towards airfare!

As all of the other reviews attest, this is a wonderful book. It does, however, suffer from two limitations as a result of its size: (1) it is thick, bulky and heavy, and (2) the print is tiny.

After buying the print version, I immediately bought the Kindle version, which gets rid of these two objections and allows for searching of the text.

If you do this with all of the travel books you rely on, you can take one lightweight Kindle with you on your trip instead of a bunch of bulky books.

I love this book! Even if you could go to only a few of the locations included in this marvelous vacation guide, you can certainly daydream about traveling to the several hundred remaining locations! This comprehensive book provides affordable locations for the average traveller as well as pictures highlighting the places of interest. This is a great book to use as a resourse when deciding where to spend a safe, relaxing and affordable vacation. The hotel suggestions and many travel tips are helpful. I am presently compiling a "bucket list" of destinations outlined in this book. My goal - to go to at least one hundred of the 1000 locations listed! This guide certainly is worth every penney. Included in the purchase is a free App for your ipad.

You might be surprised to find some places close to your home that you never visited. In additional landmark, this book also suggest great places to eat. My husband stumbled across one of these hidden treasures in the book and shared it with his co-worker. "Do you mean you live in Chicago for over 10 years and you have never been there?" co-worker replied. Hmm, I guess we know what restaurant we are going to next.

This is the most fabulous travel bible - whether you actually visit 1,000 places or dream of being there it is certainly an alluring read. Hard to believe this could top the original version but Patricia did it - from the new and expanded cities to the revised facts about the tried and true, it should be required reading for everyone young and old - just think of the possibilities for history class! Love the ipad app and bought 10 copies for holiday gifts. Loved following Where in the World is Matt Lauer and finding all his destinations in the book. Talk about an aspirational read!! I am hooked! Wouldn't it be fun to travel the world with Patricia Schultz? I'm getting my passport ready - buy this book!!

It seems like the author Has "sold out" to advertisers. Not a good guide book and can not even be considered as a place to start your "bucket list." Some of the places listed, you would probably die before you saw them; they are in dangerous and hostile areas.
Book does not provide adequate information about the sites because it is listing places to stay/eat. I travel widely and the places listed are not the nicest nor the best value.

I purchased the thick paperback edition in 2003 and have used and enjoyed it often. I like the commentary and background.

In preparing for a trip to Italy, I got the Kindle edition so I would not have to lug the book or photocopy the pages I wanted to bring.
Boy was that a mistake. The Kindle edition is so sparse. I was under the mistaken impression it would have the same content as the paper version.

Live and learn.
