"Covering 'every country on the planet that was feasibly accessible at the time of publication, ' this ravishing and sometimes hair-raising bucket list for the bucket seat was assembled by ace roadtripping writers and edited by the 'motoring journalist' Darryl Sleath. Don't mistake it for a mere coffee-table book: Although its lavish photographs invite armchair daydreams, this tome doubles as a reference work."

"The trusty travel guide--edited by motorsport and car blogger Darryl Sleath--is organized into three categories: Scenic, Adventure and Culture, covering mountain passes and coastal wonders alike. It also livens things up with cultural itineraries aimed to recreate your favorite literary and cinematic travels, from Jack Kerouc's journey in On the Road to Thelma and Louise's wild ride."
