  • Richly evocative, sharp and funny. De Botton proves himself to be a very fine travel writer indeed

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Delightful, profound, entertaining. I doubt if de Botton has written a dull sentence in his life

    Jan Morris
  • An elegant and subtle work, unlike any other. Beguiling

    Colin Thubron, The Times
  • Honest, funny and dripping with witty aphorisms. Extremely entertaining and enlightening . . . all the way to journey's end
