Perfect for travelers or dreamers, this is a great coffee table book that you will flip through again and again!
'People that might live in a city somewhere on Earth'. That is what this book should have been titled.

Yes, without people there would be no cities, but this book shows way to many people & not enough architecture, or other things that make a unique city unique. There are way too many pictures such as the following (& these are the big pictures (each city has 2 pages, on one page there is a big photo, on the other 2 or 3 small photos)):
Auckland - a guy on a sailboat
Beruit - close up of a beautiful young woman applying lipstick as she prepares to go out on the town.
Belfast - close up of some kids
Belieze City - some people dancing at a nightclub
Berlin - a bar
Bridgetown - 2 people walking away
Cape Town - a couple at a table in a restuarant
Cardiff - a guy looking at records in a record shop
Los Angeles - a boy wearing a baseball cap at a baseball field
New York City - 2 people sitting down on a subway train looking at... Read more
This book is perfect for what it is; a coffee table book that offers a quick glimpse of each city. I've been obsessing over it for the past week or so, I would highly recommend this book to travelers or wannabe travelers with short attention spans.

But there are two glaring issues with this book that are impossible to ignore.

1. Choice of photos: As someone mentioned earlier, their choice of photos had me scratching my head on many occasions. The New York City page is bland, as is Paris and Barcelona. It makes one wonder how it's even possible to choose such drab photos of these amazing cities- especially ones ranked number 2, 1, and 4! For example, there are two pages on New York. One is wasted on a close up of two people sitting on the subway, while the other page has three lackluster photos and all the information. REALLY? Paris and Barcelona were handled similarly.

2. Questionable ranking system: Las Vegas is apparently far "better" than Lisbon,... Read more
