1.0 out of 5 stars These are COUNTERFEIT Batteries - No Warranty Included!, October 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These batteries are counterfeit batteries. The packaging looks like Sony - but it is not - just look inside and you will not find a warranty for the batteries. Mine are starting to die after just a few times of use. As another person said, they should not be allowed to sell these on Amazon...
Pay more and get a real battery from Sony.

1.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING SELECTION OF THE 1,000 PLACES!!!, October 23, 2003
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this book with great anticipation. After going through it cover to cover, I have been to 270 of the 1,000 places. I was most disappointed to see what constitutes a "place to see before you die"...With over 220 Hotels/Resorts listed and over 130 dining/restaurants listed, this brings down the amount of real "places" dramatically. While food and lodging are integral to the travel experience, to waste 362 listings in those areas alone are a huge WASTE! To include a hot dog stand in Chicago and then skip the ruins of Carthage in Tunisia spoils the credibility of this book. Over 220 hotels could have easily been boiled down to a top ten or stretched to a top twenty...after that they are all the same. Again, this goes for the restaurants, most not worthy of note. Restaurants come and go, where are the classical sites and ruins of the world? Ever think of starting with the UNESCO list? She has included a whopping 56 sites within the title Ancient Worlds. Why so few?
I would like to know how many of the places the author has actually visited...Or just included the hype from the press releases she received.
The information in the how to sections are good and very helpful. It's the selection of the top 1,000 that is horribly flawed. The author mentions that the list will not please everyone and of course, she is right. For the beginner it is a good place to start, but for the true world traveler with a brain, you will be sorely disappointed with what is missing and what was included in its place.
Buy at your own risk and be sure to read between the fluff. Most of these are just over priced hotels and restaurants, catering to the uninitiated.
