Although a little old now, this is still a wonderful book! It's a great travel book as the entries are all reasonably short and can be read quickly. They are in chronological order, but you can rad them in any order you wish. There are some items you might think are boring or you might think you already know about, but I found that each one was fascinating and for even those with which I was familiar, there were some details or little-known facts that I had not known before!
