I was hoping there to be a lot of beautiful pictures and side facts information like lonely planet's other "Travel Book". But it's basically the same information on the "Planet Earth" series dvd. You're better off just watching it.

Gave this to my Dad and he loved it. Talks about all the new places he wants to visit and loves the pictures and succinct information.

The Traveller's Guide to Planet Earth is the combined effort of the Lonely Planet and BBC EARTH presenting the experience of 50 Extraordinary Destinations from the BBC's Spectacular Documentary Planet Earth for people who want the experience in their hands in book form. This is probably the most exquisite and fascinating travel book you will ever read and enjoy. The photographs are indescribably breath-taking and the text is so descriptive and fascinating. In addition to the information which is in the documentary, the book details fifty different trips to amazing parts of our earth which are available to travelers. The book reveals little known (and some well-known) places to visit for extraordinary learning experiences: from Mountains to Fresh Water, to Caves, to Deserts, to Ice Worlds, to Great Plains, to Jungles, to Shallow Seas, to Seasonal Forests, to Deep Ocean. You will want to ponder this wonderful book over and over and show everyone who visits. And, if you are lucky enough, you may be able to book a tour to some of these places described. If you are fortunate to go in person, this book tells you all you need to know about how to do so.
