Being that I love reading travel books, I found this book very interesting and different! You learn about places you couldn't imagine even existed, and you get a different perspective on places that are often in books that say you must visit before you die. It was an interesting read, but not interesting enough for me to want to keep the book. I suppose if you were dying for conversation, some of the places mentioned in the book would make a great conversation piece! This book focuses on places around the world, not just the U.S.
