Ok: Who says? What makes this person's account better than anyone else's?

Living in L.A.: why is Langer's Deli better than Canter's? Why is La Brea Bakery rated so high? Why Starbucks? Why Yellowstone as a "landmark" and not The Statue of Liberty or Empire State Building? How can the 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th Chocolatiers be American?

None-the-less it is an interesting book. I did learn about cigars, I remember the Perfumes he spoke about from my childhood, Trains & Road trips.....

I like the theory of the book - lists of ten. Lists are my friend and 10 is neither too large nor too small. However, not being a uber-wealthy jet-setter, I end up being depressed that I am unlikely to even "check off" 10% of what's in here. Ever. I recognize the same problem with the (x number) Places to See books, HOWEVER those have a slight edge to me since those books are often set up much better to help you find what to do when you have a particular destination. This book is set up regardin ...more

This book annoyed me. I understand that it is just a gimmick, the whole 10 best list thing, but over 400 pages of top 10's way way too much bullsh*t for me. Really, how could you call out the best 10 of anything unless you have been/seen everything in that category?

The only things that I found to be of any use in this book were a listing the Ten Best Beaches. (They may not actually be the 10 best, but at the probably are pretty good to have made the list.)

This is a wonderful compilation for browsing, daydreaming over, and arguing with. The lists of chocolate, cameras, cigars, hotels, trains, and national parks are interspersed with stories from the authors, the Landes, who have apparently been everywhere and done everything, usually with the founder, owner, or world's expert at.... The story of the Bolshoi Ballet chair that one of the Landes spirited out of Soviet Russia is worth the price of the book on its own. Great way to while away a few hou ...more

It's all right for someone else's opinion of the "10 Best." There are top ratings on everything from food to travel destinations to sports. To be honest, I think everyone can decide for themselves what tops their own lists. But it is interesting to see what someone else thinks everyone else should think.

An interesting half-hour skim, but there's plenty of argument over what signifies "best". Feels a little elitist, but maybe that's the point of it.

I wonder if any of these tidbits will ever come in handy for me?? Somehow I doubt it....
