Interestingly, a majority of the titles were published after the 1,000 Places to See Before You Die original. So much for originality here. Since it's been a while (2003), I can say those words have long faded in appeal and now has become such an overused cliché.
Look at two excellent books involving imminent death- Tuesdays with Morrie and The Last Lecture- are so much more dignified in their title selection. Now the dearth creativity has poured into the wealth of books aimed at huge demographic of mostly living active travelers.
In a short: I welcome ideas for travel but, seriously, give me a break and do some real writing work.
