Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cities represent civilization and human achievement: they are bubbling microcosms of virtues and vices, vanguards of technology and creative pursuits, incubators of traditions and melting-pots of diversity. More than half the world's population now lives in cities, and for travelers they hold an endless fascination.

Review:

San Francisco Chronicle, August 2006
"...there's no putting this book down once you open it."

Synopsis:

Lonely Planet's first follow-up to bestselling "The Travel Book" is a full-color pictorial celebrating the microcosms of human achievement that are cities. Taking cues from the buzz on the street, this book captures the individual flavour of each city through the eyes of the typical citizen. Full color.
