Biographie de l'auteur

Tras su primer viaje a los Andes en 1999, Regis regresó a su casa, vendió todas sus pertenencias y emprendió un gran periplo por Sudamérica. Desde entonces, la ha visitado infinitas veces y ha acumulado miles de kilómetros de jungla y carreteras de montaña. Desde 2003 es escritor de viajes 'full-time', autor coordinador de las guías de Ecuador y Brasil de Lonely Planet, y ha colaborado en más de otros 30 títulos. Sus escritos le han llevado a lo largo del norte y del sur de América, a diversos rincones del este y del norte de Europa, y alrededor de Asia y Australia. Su trabajo se ha publicado en varias revistas de viaje así como en periódicos tales como Chicago Tribune o Los Angeles Times. Cuando no está explorando el mundo, Regis vive entre Brooklyn, Nueva York y Sídney, Australia.

Cuando no está escribiendo sobre su destino favorito en la Patagonia, Carolyn intenta visitar países tropicales. En los últimos años ha contribuido en más de una docena de guías Lonely Planet. También ha escrito para National Geographic, Outside y Lonely Planet Magazine entre otras muchas publicaciones.

Nacida en Argentina, Sandra tiene ascendencia china y estadounidense, algo que ha confundido a muchos chinos, estadounidenses y argentinos que ha conocido. Siempre en movimiento, ha viajado a más de 60 países y vivido en tres continentes, aunque ahora reside en la bonita costa noroeste del Pacífico. Está orgullosa de ser porteña y regresa a menudo a Argentina. Sandra ha contribuido en un par de docenas de títulos de Lonely Planet sobre cuatro continentes.

Nacido y educado en New Hampshire, Inglaterra, Brendan ha vivido y trabajado en más de 70 países. Ha coordinado y escrito para Lonely Planet varias guías relacionadas con Cuba, aunque también ha cubierto muchos otros países, entre ellos Angola, Italia y EE UU. Cuba sigue siendo su refugio preferido y La Habana –junto con Londres y Granada– una de sus ciudades predilectas. Cuando no escribe ni viaja, Brendan disfruta siguiendo los avatares del Southampton Football Club, escuchando viejos discos de Clash y corriendo absurdas distancias por los desiertos.

Ha colaborado en más de 40 guías de Lonely Planet y en varios artículos para LA Times, Lonely Planet Magazine, Gadling.com e Islands Magazine. Viajó por primera vez a Malasia e Indonesia en 1993 y 1995, respectivamente, tras haberse especializado en estudios sobre sureste asiático en la Universidad de California. Actualmente vive en Portland, Oregón.

Mara viajó por primera vez al extranjero en 1988. Como estudiante, veraneó en los Países escandinavos y realizó un viaje a la Unión Soviética que le inspiró a aprender ruso. Más adelante, viajó alrededor del mundo gracias a una beca de investigación sobre proyectos de desarrollo internacional de la Circumnavigators’ Foundation. Volvió a Rusia donde enseñó inglés durante un año en Kiev, Ucrania, y durante los tumultuosos años de la transición, trabajó en un proyecto de ayuda extranjera en Yekaterinburg, Rusia. Escribe regularmente para Lonely Planet en las guías de Belice, Costa Rica y Rusia, así como las de Nueva Inglaterra, lugar donde reside en la actualidad.

Afincada en Chicago, escribe artículos de viajes para periódicos, libros, revistas y webs como: The National Geographic Traveler, National Public Radio, BBC, Chicago Tribune o Time Out Chicago. Ha viajado a más de 55 países y ha colaborado en guías Lonely Planet de EE UU, Canadá, el Caribe y Europa.

Adam Skolnick es un angelino de tercera generación, nacido y criado en LA. Su familia se trasladó del centro a Boyle Heights, en el Fairfax District, y, durante el curso del siglo pasado, se instaló finalmente en Santa Mónica. Periodista freelance, escribe sobre viajes, cultura, salud, deporte y medio ambiente para Lonely Planet, Men’s Health, Outside, Travel & Leisure y Spa. Es asimismo autor y coautor de nueve guías anteriores de Lonely Planet y, cómo no, de unos cuantos guiones aún por vender. Vive en Santa Mónica y Bali, pero cada vez siente más apego por el centro y Echo Park.

Greg empezó en el periodismo como editor jefe del famoso Bolivian Times informando sobre narcotráfico, crímenes contra los derechos humanos y el ambiente de los numerosos bares y discotecas del país. Experto escritor de viajes, ha colaborado en medios de comunicación como son Newsweek, The Washington Post, BBC Radio, Rick Steve’s Radio y Let’s Travel Radio y en las revistas National Geographic Traveler, Conde Naste Traveller y Wild Blue Yonder. Ha escrito docenas de guías para Lonely Planet sobre países de toda Sudamérica.

Alison es licenciada en Historia del Arte y Relaciones Internacionales en la Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, un programa conjunto de las universidades Tufts y Harvard, lo que le confiere unas respetables credenciales diplomáticas que regularmente socava con incisivos comentarios culturales para periódicos, revistas, televisión, radio y libros, incluidas varias guías de Lonely Planet.

Como escritor y periodista gráfico dedicado a las culturas tradicionales, Michael supo que había encontrado un filón cuando llegó a Gujarat, cruzando el estado de camino a aldeas tribales remotas. En Uttarakhand, ha migrado al Himalaya junto a pastores nómadas de búfalos de agua y se ha unido a los fieles en peregrinaciones por las montañas. Las historias fascinantes allí vividas y las amistades forjadas le hacen volver una y otra vez a la India. Ha escrito y fotografiado para The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor Magazine, The International Herald Tribune, Wend o Geographical Magazine.

Ha escrito y colaborado en unos 30 títulos de Lonely Planet. En su tercera incursión para explorar Malasia para Lonely Planet, vió primates, subió montañas, aguantó el tipo en juegos alcohólicos con expatriados y flotó boca arriba río abajo en media de la selva virgen...  'If we ever meet on the road, let’s share a drink and a story'.  (Adam Karlin)

Ryan Ver Berkmoes vivió durantes tres años en Fráncfort, donde trabajó como editor de una revista hasta que su carrera cambió de rumbo y empezó a trabajar en Lonely Planet. Desde 1997 ha participado en más de 90 títulos.

Nacido en Nueva York, Gregor ha vivido en California, Francia, España e Italia. Ha atravesado Sudamérica de punta a punta, recorrido en bicicicleta Bali y el desierto de Wyoming, nadado con los pingüinos y los tiburones en las Islas Galápagos, caminado en el Himalaya, etc. Políglota desde la niñez, se licenció en Lenguas Románicas en la Stanford University y es autor habitual de Lonely Planet desde el año 2000.

HASH(0x9771b708) étoiles sur 5 A big disappointment. Seems to be made for foreigners 1 juin 2014
Par Jo Ann Graham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This book appears to be primarily aimed at foreign visitors to the US. It explains in VERY VERY broad terms what to bring, what the weather is like and how to get around. When I say broad terms I mean three sentences on Where to Sleep and five sentences on What to Bring. In terms of thorough or precise information this is NOT the source.

I disagree strongly with the books decision about what is "the best of the USA" Huge sections of the nation -- mostly in the center are completely ignored in this book. Nothing about Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and much more. This book basically gives a tour of New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Massachusetts, New Orleans, Miami and Disney World, Los Angeles and San Francisco and some of our national parks. That leaves out huge portions of the US that made big contributions to what America is and how it came to be what it is, not to mention important things to see like Yellowstone Park or The Alamo.

Whoever buys this needs to have another source of more specific and more useful information. This is just a broad brush sweep of one person's opinion. Relying solely on this guidebook would undoubtedly get someone in trouble.

HASH(0x9767930c) étoiles sur 5 Great Travel Guide to Help Explore Where You Want To Go 5 septembre 2014
Par Wendi Barker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
In this book, the United States has been broken into 9 color-coded sections that each show Highlights of the area, best of (neighborhoods, museums, night life, places to eat), walking tours, need-to-know information (airports, resources, warnings, etc), and then more specific information for that area.

The nine sections are: New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Boston & New England, New Orleans & The South, Florida, The Grand Canyon & the Southwest, The Pacific Northwest, California, and The Best of the Rest (Hawaii, Alaska, Rocky Mountains, Texas, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, Mt. Rushmore)

The book starts with a Plan Your Trip section which explores the US, the map of the US, Top 25 Highlights, Top Itineraries, the USA Month-by-Month, What's New, Get Inspired and things you Need To Know.

Just to see how they represented our area, I went into the Pacific Northwest section. They actually have 2 separate itineraries for Washington near the coast, and they both look good. They explore some wonderful places and have good suggestions for places to stay and eat. Honestly, they've really done some good research. They have listed some great places to visit (not all are as well-known as you would expect, so that is great), and they have some kid-friendly suggestions as well that I can vouch for.

If you've ever seen a AAA travel book for a state, this is similar in that they share great pictures, and have suggested places to visit, stay, eat, etc. And each place has the name in bold, along with phone number, web site, estimated cost, etc. Then a paragraph or so describing the place. It is really nice.

If you are wanting to find some fun places to explore in the US, this is a great place to start! You will find plenty of places all over the US that might interest you, and enough information to plan a great visit.

HASH(0x974f6114) étoiles sur 5 Utterly Worthless 22 juin 2014
Par LitWit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I noticed another reviewer mentioned that this travel guide seemed to be made for foreigners, and I agree. More specifically, as I went through it...it seemed more like a "Discover USA *Road Trip*" Travel Guide. I've traveled extensively and this book (for me) is completely worthless (like you might as well throw it in the garbage).The book covers 9 zones (really the highlight zones of the USA)

1) The Pacific Northwest
2) California
3) The Grand Canyon & the Southwest
4) New Orleans & the South
5) Chicago
6) Boston & New England
7) Washington D.C.
8) New York City
9) Florida

Notice how the emphasis even in the zones covered is on cities or particular major sites (i.e. Grand Canyon). The bulk of the material on each zone IS about the city or the site...the rest (like the "& the South") is more like an afterthought. Even within the cities the guide focuses on major (what I would consider tourist attractions). Like "The White House" or "Disney World." The way the zones are presented is also road trip(y)...like the book assumes you will be driving. Finally, the book offers up *nothing* that is even remotely secret of off the beaten path.

So, why is the guide worthless? Well, there isn't enough information in the guide regarding things to do outside of the major sites it focuses on and, quite frankly, there isn't enough information on the major sites and attractions. If you're going to go to Disney World...you'd be better served by buying a guide book dedicated to Disney World (same with Boston, Washington D.C., Hollywood, San Francisco, etc..). And if you're looking for a road trip, or some activities off the beaten path, might I suggest the "Road Trip" series by Jaime Jensen (which I've both enjoyed and found extremely useful).

So, overall...there are so many, many better guide options. Don't waste your money.

I usually enjoy Lonely Planet travel guides but I found the Discover USA guide to be missing a little too much of America. The authors divide up the country into sections. Some sections are well covered and others need more added to them.

New York, Chicago, Washington, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle,Los Angeles to name a few are well surveyed. The Great museums in all these cities are detailed to include prices and hours of operations. The authors include zoos also (always a treat with kids). And speaking of children, the authors point out places and sights the kiddos will enjoy. There's plenty of good info on where to go for music and nightlife in cities and fine dining and restaurants. I liked the info on these cities and a few more too. Washington D.C. is probably the best written city in the whole book. The reader will find plenty to do there.

There are sections about amusements parks, although Disneyworld was a bit too brief, especially the hotels on the Disney property. Parks, especially Central Park are not forgotten within metropolises either. The Natural Wonders that are highlighted are the Everglades, Smokey Mountains, Acadia, The Grand Canyon (I liked this section a lot) and Yosemite to name a few. These were well done. Although the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast need a shout out as does Mammoth Cave in Kentucky and the Garden of the Gods in Colorado.

What I found missing were big name places that deserved at least a couple of paragraphs if not a page. For instance Atlanta, Georgia is not mentioned in this book. There's plenty to see and do in Atlanta like the amazing Aquarium, the World of Coca Cola, and The Martin Luther King National Historic Sight. Michigan's beautiful Mackinac Island should have been noted along with the city of Cleveland with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Football Hall of Fame just down the road in Canton and Cedar Point not too far away either. In fact there was not much in the Midwest here. Even St. Louis was not mentioned with its Arch, great zoo, Cathedral, Forest Park and Art Museum. I know this is an overview but the Midwest is more than flyover country.

As for the East Coast, there is no information about Annapolis, Maryland a beautiful capital, and "Sailing Capital of the World" and the home of the Naval Academy. Also there was no mention of Baltimore with its inner harbor, fabulous Aquarium, interesting visual arts museum, Science Center and the historic Fort McHenry.

What was written was well done. This book needed about twenty more pages so it could include even more wonderful not to miss sights in America.
HASH(0x9759cee8) étoiles sur 5 excellent pictures but tries to do too much 8 juin 2014

It is naturally difficult to write a guide to a country as large as the USA, but if that's what you call it, that's what you should do. This book would more accurately be called Highlights of the US, or major cities and national parks.

The book gives a great deal of shallow information, not necessarily a bad thing, but as others have noted, this is a book to get you started, but you will need supplemental information for your travel destinations. Here you will find very general information and a few specifics, but this book can't even see comprehensive from where it's at.

Chapters are: New York City; Washington DC; Chicago; Boston & New England; New Orleans & the South; Florida; the Grand Canyon & the Southwest; California; the Best of the Rest. There are also sections on history, arts, sports, restaurants, and general travel tips.

There are lots of nice color pictures. The book is fairly busy, with pages and text interrupted by sidebars and lists and maps, and the text is really small if that's an issue for you. One of my biggest complaints is the mediocre index. When a book is as packed with facts and blurbs as this, there should be a very comprehensive index. I also agree with other reviewers that the book glances over or ignores large areas of the country, but what it does cover it does reasonably well, listing hours, web sites and mini-paragraph descriptions. Good enough to get you started, but not enough to be an exclusive guide for your trip. From looking at places I'm familiar with, I'd say the short list of restaurants and sites are selected well, but are not particularly imaginative. For instance, the chapter on Boston doesn't mention the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, which I would recommend to any visitor as unique, manageable and worthwhile.
