From Publishers Weekly
Of the plethora of adjectives suitable for the tone of this witty reference book, the most relevant is proud; from the outset, Schultz declares her own personal connection to the places visited, titling the introduction, "Rediscovering My Own Backyard." Divided by region-starting off in New England, the Mid-Atlantic states, the Southeast and the rest of the U.S., then continues into eastern and western Canada-Schultz's follow-up to the bestselling 1,000 Places to See Before You Die (a global survey) presents grandiose portraits of the two countries' most popular and patriotic spots. Schultz includes plenty of directions for travel, food and lodging, including costs, though this is no budget guide (see the $75 dinner under the Brooklyn Bridge). Still, what Schultz lacks in cost-efficiency she makes up for in scope; quite literally, there's something here for everyone: baseball fields, national parks and campgrounds, major malls, expansive historical estates and more. A fine gift, it should also spark spirited party conversation-who's been where, what to visit next, and which personal favorites didn't make the cut.

1. It gives you information about interesting places in a large variety of locales;
2. It is straightforward and matter-of-fact;
3. Besides "obvious" marquee attractions, it tells you about interesting places which may not be well publicised elsewhere. This is particularly helpful for overseas visitors who are planning a visit to North America;
4. It is organised logically and it is easy to find out information about particular areas;
5. It is very reasonably priced!
There are many travel books on offer- I've seen and purchased many over the years. I believe this one is worth the money.
