Review quote

"Epic Drives of the World caught my attention. It's a new, beautiful book issued by Lonely Planet, one of the best travel-oriented publishers. What's inside is a collection of 50 journeys, another 200 ideas for great motoring and hundreds of breathtaking photographs from across the globe... For those compiling a travel bucket list or for for those simply interested in other cultures and landscapes, this book is inspiring and well worth the time to peruse stunning photographs and read fascinating stories and facts. And for those eager to hit the road, this book is a wonderful temptation." * News Tribune * "Lonely Planet's driving special is a feast for the eyes, with both fantastic photography and endearing illustrations accompanying 200 great drives across six continents" * Classic Car weekly * "This is a dreamer's book. The pictures are beautiful and you will feel compelled to start planning your trip before ou close the book." * The Manly Daily * "4 stars ... will inspire motorists with its spectacular road trips and beautiful photography" * South China Morning Post * "Lonely Planet's driving special is a feast for the eyes, with both fantastic photography and endearing illustrations accompanying 200 great drives across six continents. As a book to inspire, there isn't much quite like it. You'll conclude you absolutely must visit Zambia in a Toyota Landcruiser." * Classic Car Weekly * "The pit crew at Lonely Planet have put together a terrific new gift book for roadtrip-loving readers...[it] details 50 sensational car trips on six continents. There's just a single, simplified map offered for each drive (no need to print detailed driving directions anymore), but loads of evocative description and photographs that capture the essence of the adventures." * Passport Magazine * "The Lonely Planet has put together this gorgeous guide of the best road trips across the world" * Marie Claire * "In 'Epic Drives of the World' (328 pages, $35), Lonely Planet serves up a collection of journeys through geography, geology and cultures of astonishing grandeur, from the Belfast loop to the Captain Cook Highway to Iceland's Ring Road.
