"230 countries...showcased through 850 stunning photos. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, from populous China to tiny Easter Island, it's all here. -- ABC News"ABC News

"A reference guide to the world, with a bite-sized breakdown on each of the world’s countries, Lonely Planet’s The Travel Book is a bookshelf essential for gourmet travellers and the just-published 2016 edition is no exception. Slick photography and pithy summaries of what to see and do (as well as eat and drink) makes it an ideal starting point for trip-planning. Did you know that Angola has, historically, been one of the world’s biggest coffee producers, or that if you drink tea around a Tuareg campfire in Algeria you’ll need to wait for it to be poured three times? You will."Olive Magazine
