I purchased the "latest" edition- 2012- after seeing the one from 2008, thinking it would be revised and brought up-to-date. Seems like I was wrong. The publishers seem to be riding on their past success. Interesting book and concept but not accurate. For example, under best cruises they write about the cruise ship Crystal Harmony. This ship was taken out of service as a general cruise ship in 2006 (still in use in Japan under a different name since then). So a correction should have been made for the 2008 revised book, but if not then, most certainly by the 2012 edition. NOT. So my take is that while the material is interesting, it is just not particularly current. Too bad. I'd say that it's not very professional to come out with updated editions that are not.

I enjoyed the first (2006) and second (2008) editions of this unique and splendid book so much that I just bought the third (2012) edition, and it's absolutely terrific. Despite my familiarity with the earlier versions, I've been spending hours completely absorbed in this one, both for the sheer pleasure of reading and re-reading it and as a tremendously useful resource for my upcoming summer travel. There's not one page that isn't captivating.

Fortunately, the enchanting format, appealing design, elegant layout, high quality paper, exquisite artwork, engaging style, and vast international scope of the previous editions have been retained, and updates, additional recommendations, and five new chapters make the 2012 edition well worth purchasing (especially since its price is amazingly reasonable for such a sumptuous book containing such a wealth of information).

The rich content is organized efficiently and imaginatively, lending itself equally to reading straight through or dipping into at random. This book doesn't only provide information; it feeds the soul and the imagination as well. Reading it is a memorable and rewarding journey in and of itself.

My 2006 review of the first edition of "The Ten Best of Everything" is below; everything I wrote at that time applies to its excellent 2012 successor:

<<This superb book immediately earned a place of honor on the shelf of Very Special Favorites in my personal library, and has retained that position each time I've succumbed to the delightful temptation of re-reading it. I recommend it enthusiastically and wholeheartedly.

Unique in purpose and content, "THE 10 BEST OF EVERYTHING: PASSPORT TO THE BEST, An Ultimate Guide for Travelers" stands well above today's flood of look-alike travel and "best-of" books, and measures up to top travel literature from the past. Selective without being superficial, it's a great read. It evoked resonant memories of places I know and love (New York, Buenos Aires, the Amalfi Coast...), offered new takes on subjects I *thought* I knew (cameras, coffees, Paris...), and enticed me to add to my agenda much I might never have considered (Antarctica, comfy hand-made mattresses from London, a jet-boat safari through a New Zealand World Heritage area...). And it's great fun: the colorful tales with which these two master travelers and raconteurs regale us ("Waiting for MacPherson", "The Chair: Backstage at the Bolshoi"...) make me wish that I'd been along for the ride on their past adventures and that they'd accompany my future ones -- or at least plan my itineraries!

The clever organization and interweaving of this book's rich contents exemplify "thinking outside the box". It's really several books in one. Aside from the authors' personal recommendations and reminiscences and their wealth of ingeniously arranged lists, from which you'll be hard-pressed to tear yourself away, you also get what amounts to an exquisite art book -- the text is lavished with gorgeous historic travel posters and other travel-related art, providing evocative scenery for an armchair tour.

I marveled at the authors' combined range of experience and expertise, from high-end pursuits (Argentine polo, vintage wines, escapes to paradisiacal Malaysian resorts...) to equally satisfying simple pleasures that fit even the humblest budget (top-rated `burgers, flea/antique markets on several continents, awe-inspiring cathedrals for quiet contemplation, the religious experience of eating Arthur Bryant's barbecue in Kansas City...).

This book is a perfect and very classy gift at a reasonable price -- my holiday shopping will be VERY easy this year! It's already received raves from seasoned travelers to whom I've recommended it, and has inspired some friends who are confirmed homebodies to think about setting out to see the world.

More than all its absorbing narratives and intriguing recommendations, though, the real glory of this book is that it's a rare, totally unpedantic education in how to truly live well -- not necessarily expensively (although those seeking luxury couldn't have more savvy mentors than the Landes!), but to the fullest. The book has been a beacon illuminating the path between my dreams and the memorable journeys they're becoming.>>

You have to be in the right mindset to read this book, or even consider perusing it. When you are in the right mindset, you are free to read, dream, and imagine.
I had to quickly steel my stomach to digest the tone of the book, a somewhat antediluvian anachronicstic aristocratic tone, to get through to the meat and bones.

Great bathroom reading; where else does one read these listbooks?
Shaktit
this is an entertaining book; lots of the events or destinations are outside the affordability of regular folks, though. it is probably best to view this as a fun look at the good life. there are inclusions which are doable for everyone; that is helpful info, and the book itself is nicely produced. don't pay full price for this one...
Marelyne
I look forward to reading.

Interesting with tons of color photos!
Very interesting. Good info.
