“The perennial guide to iconic travel destination....We read the entire book, stopping to gasp, comment and bookmark several pages along the way.”
—The Huffington Post
“[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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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. 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.’”
“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.’ [She is] the travel expert who launched legions of bucket lists back in 2003 (before we even knew what a bucket list was).”
—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
“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
“1,000 Places to See Before You Die...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
“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

After that, my wife got me a copy for Christmas. It does a good job of describing the big sites, and also points out a lot of hidden gems along the way. This is not the end all travel book, but it has a lot of great ideas and I definitely recommend it.
It's small enough to bring on trips, but I would definitely recommend reading this before you get on the plane to your destination as the book is a bit heavy and bulky to carry around everywhere.
Oh course with all top/best lists there are some things people disagree about or are left off, but this book does just about as good of a job as one can with touching on the major places.
Great read for travel junkies.
