Editorial Reviews


"Bourdain's thoughts on places exotic and well known, blended into a kind of Baedeker for the hipster set...It makes for an exhilarating whirlwind tour."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Gordon's casual, friendly tone, reminiscent of Bourdain's own personal style, makes it easy for listeners to imagine traveling the world with him. Interspersed throughout are essays by some of those who knew him, each narrated by its author. The affection expressed for the late travel show host and writer is one of the most memorable features of this listening experience."

-- "AudioFile"

"It's the 'World according to Tony'--a browsable compendium of his matchless commentary on worthy destinations in forty-three countries."

-- "People"

"An impressive food-obsessed travel guide...This gloriously messy miscellany of off-kilter observations and lightning-in-a-bottle insights will make one want to read, eat, and experience the world the way Bourdain did."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"There will never be anyone quite like Anthony Bourdain. But World Travel offers readers the potential to travel the world as he did."

-- "Fortune"

Charming...Irresistible...An exhilarating and worthwhile choice for those planning an actual trip and for stay-at-home travelers."

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"
