This book is torture! So many places to go and so little time. But this book is a great dream read, bucket list, or just for the fun of it peruse.

An excellent book that gives a brief overview of every country in the world. Adding the best time of year to visit places like Afghanistan and North Korea seems a bit funny as no one who's keeping up with the news would consider going there. Still, really good nutshell travel book.

An absolutely beautiful book. Colouful, informative easy to read. If you've every wanted to travel some place off the beaten path, this would be an excellent book to start you on that journey. I could easily see me buying this book for my own personal library. You won't be disappointed in taking out this book.
