Excellent detail; lively texts; covers a range of budgets
Latest edition has squeezed out some interesting destinations; too bulky for traveling with (*)
Some funny parts, the supporting cast, not too technical
A bit laddish, not enough on the places visited (*)
Good concept, good choice of pubs, good looking
Poor legibility, poor geographic coverage, poor value for money (*)
Great photos, a must for travel or photography fans
Some poor maps (*)
Mentions places of interest which you might otherwise miss, cheap too.
Written in 2003/2004 so some prices / information might be slightly outdated (*)
similar by Genre (Travel and holiday)
Informative, educational & extremely useful.
It is quite heavy. (*)
At least it doesn't weigh much
Superficial and silly. Poorly structured and annoying (*)
Great tips, and information
None (*)
Some amazingly different places to stay
Some you would have to pay me to stay in! (*)
Witty writing, interesting to find out more about Moldova
Over the top at times (*)
clearly laid out, lots of diagrams and illustrations, well written
factual approach means the book is somewhat dry (*)
It's funnier than I expected
It won't teach you much about the 7 Wonders (*)
It's Bill Bryson, hilarious, excellently written, short stories
Some parts repeated from other books, can be irritating! (*)
