"It just reminds me how much of the world there is still to see" - Tony Wheeler, Lonely Planet founder, 145 countries visited and counting ... 'This is a stunning book. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, it's a classic coffee table book, best perused on a rainy afternoon with a cup of coffee in one hand and your passport in the other, just in case you get the urge to flee the country.' Digital Camera Magazine. At a time when the world feels as if its becoming a larger, more divided and increasingly impossible place to understand, let alone discover, The Travel Book is a reminder that the world is truly an amazing place.' The Age (Melbourne, Australia)

My wife and I have had been very blessed to have seen many countries, and it gets harder and harder to find interesting journeys when all the coffee table books listing unique and amazing places are listing many of the same places you've already been. Sometimes you have to step way out of the box and look at countries that are not widely written about.
I'd recommend this book for anyone wanting to start exploring the world with their first international trip, as well as veteran travelers wanting to make a short list of candidate countries for the next big trip.
It's a great gift as well.
If you are interested in travelling, or just want to fantasize about the beauty of cultures across the globe, this book is a fun resource to have lying around. The information given for each country is not all-encompassing, but it is enough to spark your imagination and get you started. I plan to use this to help guide some of my future travel. This is a good place to pick out some countries one might want to visit, and then turn to other resources to investigate further, It is nice to have all of the countries side by side, with pictures and snap-shot information about the culture, things to do and see, a map, etc.
