Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever fancied travelling through time? Taming a lion? Winning a Nobel Prize?

Well, here’s how to attempt all that and more. Daniel Smith—author of 100 Places You Will Never Visit—takes you on an entertaining journey through 100 things you will (probably) never get the chance to do.

Offering tips and advice on things that you may never be rich enough to do (buy your own island, drink a bottle of 1787 Château Lafite, own a Shakespeare first folio); things you might never be brave enough to try (bullfight, base jump from the Burj Khalifa, charm a snake); things you’ll hopefully never have to do (escape from Alcatraz, land a 747, play Russian roulette); and even the downright absurd (being in two places at once, making gold, becoming invisible). 100 Things You Will Never Do will give you a glimpse of your infinite potential.

Synopsis:

Ever wondered what it takes to get into Fort Knox? Fancied a peek inside the Coca-Cola Safety Deposit Box? Would you dare to visit Three Mile Island?

The world is full of secret places that we either don't know about, or couldn't visit even if we wanted to. Now you can glimpse the Tora Bora caves in Afghanistan, visit the Tucson Titan Missile Site, tour the Vatican Archives, or see the Chapel of the Ark. This fascinating guide book takes a look at 100 places around the world that are either so hard to reach, so closely guarded, or so secret that they are virtually impossible to visit any other way.
