Book Description

Have you ever wondered how to spot the best olive oil, or a dodgy Chianti Classico? or why the tower at Pisa leans? or what Da Vinci's 5 prophecies predicted for the human race, or why Michangelo hid a secret message into the fresco of the Sistine Chapel ... then this is the book for you

No matter where you go - Time Travel will find you the Perfect Bitesize Essay, Letter, Diary Entry, Script, Short Story or Article.

WHATEVER you're interested in ... from History, Art, Science, and Philosophy to Sport, Ghost Stories, Mysteries and Legends ... And WHEREVER you are - Time Travel Guides will be the perfect companion.

On a gondola in Venice? Why not see how Casanova won revenge over a love-rival, or why Mark Twain thought he'd found the worlds greatest painting. Charles Dickens gives a lively description of Rome, DH Lawrence evokes the beauty of Sardinia and we've selected the choicest of Leonardo Da Vinci's thoughts on Life, Art and the Universe. Letters from Michaelangelo describe life at the Sistine Chapel, Dante's Divine Comedy is finally explained and from Boccaccio's masterpiece, the Decameron, we've plucked the best of his hundred short stories.

So wherever you find yourself in Italy, from the Boutiques of Milan to the traffic of Naples to a dilapidated Palazzo in Umbria this book will have the perfect letter, essay or article from one of the World’s greatest writers.

Enjoy!
From all the team at Time Travel.

P.S. There's a whole series - so you can be just about anywhere in the world and there'll be some magical piece of writing that would be perfect to read while you sit back and sip your cappuccino. You're in Berlin? How about reading one of Hitler's speeches - to understand just how he managed to beguile a nation and commit such horrors. At the Tower of London? How about a confession from Captain Blood, explaining exactly how he stole the Crown Jewels? Or read Churchill's description of the tower during the blitz. The Pyramids in Egypt? then what about reading the Egyptian Book of the Dead? or a letter from Napoleon describing what happened when he slept overnight in the Chamber of Khufu... On a visit to the Scottish Highlands? Why not read George Spicer's sighting of the Loch Ness Monster - and see if you can spot any flaws in his story. In Nepal? why not read the diary of famous yeti-hunter, B.H Hodgson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best idea I've Seen in ages April 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're interested in Italy then this book is a little gem. I guarantee you will spend more time enjoying this than any other guide book you have ever had. There are so many exquisite writers all writing passionately about Italy: Da Vinci, Casanova, Charles Dickens, D.H. Lawrence. There is also another book in the series on Florence well worth getting both.

There's a whole of series eBooks - starting from just $2.99 - so you can be just about anywhere in the world and there'll be some magical piece of writing that would be perfect to read while you sit back and sip your cappuccino.

Best Regards

James

P.S. For some examples of what this series is about ...

In a cafe in Paris? Why not read a witty essay by Mark Twain on what he thought of French women, or a letter from Gustave Eiffel describing his new idea for a tower... Find yourself in Hollywood? Why not read the first film script - you'll be surprised how short it is - or how about some love letters from Howard Hughes to Katharine Hepburn?

If you're sitting in a garden in Florence you can read what Leonardo Da Vinci thought about the meaning of life - all in his own words! That's the beauty about this series - it doesn't tell you what to think about Da Vinci, it gives you his actual words - carefully selected to leave out the boring bits. So you can read direct from Da Vinci: How to Live Longer and How to Die Happy. He even tells you why the Sky is Blue and his prophecies for the future.

You're in park by the Champs Elysees in Paris? Why not read one of Napoleon's letters to Josephine, and see why he loved her above all the others. You're in Berlin? How about reading one of Hitler's speeches - to understand just how he managed to beguile a nation and commit such horrors. At the Tower of London? How about a confession from Captain Blood, explaining exactly how he stole the Crown Jewels? Or read Churchill's description of the tower during the blitz. At the Pyramids in Egypt? then what about reading the Egyptian Book of the Dead? or a letter from Napoleon describing what happened when he slept overnight in the Chamber of Khufu... On a visit to the Scottish Highlands? Why not read George Spicer's sighting of the Loch Ness Monster - and see if you can spot any flaws in his story. In Nepal? why not read the diary of the world's most infamous yeti-hunter. You get the idea... hope you enjoy.
