Publisher's Weekly Review

"From cities to forests and from deserts to oceans, there's so much to discover. All you need is a good guide and a little curiosity," Martin writes in the introduction to this jam-packed, oversize exploration of world regions. Washy mixed-media spreads identify human figures, animals, objects, and attractions. Regal monuments, matryoshka dolls, and a huddle of suited-up, cigar-smoking "billionaires" grace Moscow. Martin pokes fun across the board (in New York City, rats share a slice of pizza, and in Paris, he reports that there are "10 tons of dog droppings every day") and offers an ebullient outing for armchair travelers.
