The selection and presentation are inspired: this is a beguilingly simple, tactile compendium brimming with solid research and good writing." Dan Linstead, Editor, Wanderlust Magazine.

When planning a holiday, what you’re looking for are good ideas – and this book is chock-a-block with them…". Frank Barret, Travel Editor, The Mail on Sunday.

What I really like are travel books that make you desperate to visit the places they describe— ‘Clean Breaks’ does this, and, best, it does it for every continent". Macy Halford, The New Yorker.
