" This is rather the hipster guide to travel. Enjoyed the photographs and the well synthesized short texts accompanying them however I wasn't very keen on the selections accented in the book. Especially the section "Services" I found very weak and clumsy. You can easily substitute the gap with Todd Selby's books - "Selby at Your Place" and "Edible Selby". " said.

" From now on a.k.a. 'The Monocle Guide to a Better Society' ... " said.

"A compendium of different tidbits from Monocle's past publications. Past reviewers are right that it's already a bit dated: reading it in 2018, after Brazil's economic contraction after years of promise and growth, got a whiff of dusty, early 2010's BRICs fervor. And the rapid rise of vertical e-commerce solutions that promote access to artisanal quality products is, naturally, absent.

The book is beautifully laid out, and the writing is always sharp and at times insightful, although the same could not necessarily be said of the editorial (Monocle seems to think that the ideal world would basically just consist of Nordic countries, Japan, and a smattering of Australia and Brazil).

" Flimsy read, for such a massive book, and utterly superficial. Don't waste your time - this is for fake, rich hipsters only. " said.
