I've read a bunch of his books now, and
1. His best stuff comes when he himself is trying to do something, or get somewhere, or is personally interacting with someone. When he is just describing what he sees around him he's fine but not amazing, and when he is recounting history you can find elsewhere, he's more than a little dubious.
2. The more off the beaten path, the better.
3. He's super entertaining but much of it I don't end up remembering.
