    I adore this book! It is a fun read! Very interesting and helpful facts & info about the sights listed. This is a great book for regular travelers or, if you are not a regular traveler or don't get to travel, it is a great book to sit and read for enjoyment.The delivery itself was awesome! Arrived 2 weeks earlier than the latest date expected and was packaged properly. The book is used, but I cannot even tell because it is in wonderful condition!I am delighted to add this book to my personal library!

    Purchased as a gift for my 12 year old son who is interested in cities and sights around the world. He seems to enjoy it.

    This is a great book and he first book you should pick up along with LP " 1000 ultimate experiences" if your adventure legs are starting to act up. Great locations and ideas.

    The new book by Lonely Planet - 1000 Ultimate Sights piqued my interest when I read the title, didn't it you? I mean how many sights do we see, and say WOW or we just move on, this book was at last attempting to publish what we love, or would love to see.Thinking it over, what lists would I create, let alone do the research on, made me amazed at this book's scope of lists, that go 2 pages in the Contents area, i.e. itineraries, flashiest lighthouses, most oversized animals, greatest viking sights, I'll stop for a moment. It's almost overload with all the choices, and I found the book, more of a pick it up, and glance through a list or 2, then put it down. It's format is mid size, not the usual huge coffee table size, so it fit for me on my night stand or in a book bag in the car. I like the idea of getting travel ideas brewing, you know, where to next, and knowing that I might never actually go see these sights, again, such as: most impressive steps and staircases, best sights from above ( loved the image of spiral jetty in Utah and I wish there were more photos, it would make it even better...).This is a good book, well researched, and organized in a way that invites curiosity. Great gift idea or for your home library!

    I can see what Lonely Planet are trying to achieve with this guide but unfortunately I don't think they manage too successfully to pull it off.This guide tries to offer ideas to the traveller who would "like to see this building" or would "like to see that natural phenomenon". The guide is broken down into sections which contain a theme. A couple of examples being - Most Impressive Waterfalls, Most Visionary Architects and Their Works and Most Bizarre Monuments, and there are many more themes within. As you can see from the titles this is not your normal travel guidebook. What this attempts to do is give you ideas (quirky and the norm) of places to visit and if you have all ready booked to fly somewhere places to see in that area.You get a short description (3 - 5 sentences or so) on the place or the building or the natural phenomenon, so that you have an idea of what you will see and the background behind it. However where this guide fails is that visually there are not enough images to inspire. Lonely Planet produce excellent travel guides, you get lots of factual information and they are known for this (you don't get lots of photos in their guides) in fact you don't expect lots of images from them. However, this type of book needs images to make the reader think "oh I'd like to go there". You also don't get that much information on the places (scanty in places).I also found it to be quite disjointed and if you are looking for sites to see in a certain place this book doesn't really work that well. If however you are looking for something to pick up and flick through, this might be the guide to inspire you.

    Checked this out in Barnes&Noble 1st, comparing it to other pictorial travel books, including the others I own, which is nearly 10 at this point-- chk out my orders!!!Deviates in a sense from the others, as it's more ocular-ly focused!! Haha! I'm making up English now!but, Lonely Planet doesn't disappoint, and their quirkiness/down-to-earth explanations/suggestions are always appreciated.
