Some of the wonder I thought was very astonishing. It also shows the seven main wonders of the world. Some of the wonders in the book are the Taj Mahal, The Statue of Liberty, The Pyramid of Egypt, The Eiffel Tower, The Leaning Tower of Pisa and many many more. If you like to learn about nature or you like to travel, it is a very good book for you. I always wanted to see the wonders of the world and I got it all in the book. 5 people found this helpful.

Every family member has a copy of this book: my mom, my sisters, my brother and me. It's been a great way to focus our travel, see amazing sights, and have the satisfaction of checking off wonders. We recently went to Japan and decided to try and see the 3 wonders in Japan: the Todai-iji Temple, Itsukushima Shrine and the Seto-Ohashi Bridge. We would not have made it to the Bridge or the Itsukushima Shrine on our own but we're very glad we did. The Shrine was amazing and not at all difficult to get to and the bridge was an engineering marvel. My 8-year wondered about the book, started reading it and now wants a copy of his own. He has seen 8 sights and wants to visit New York City so he can check off 2 more sights: the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. There are lots of wonders in the world that are not included, but we don't worry about that. We have seen many wonders that are not on the list. Every person has his/her own list of favorite wonders. My brother has been to 74, my mom has been to 51 and I've been 25. It's been a fun journey.
This is a very good compilation of man-made "wonders" in a concise and easy-to-read format. With a hundred entries, "Wonders of the World" would be monstrous were it to include much detail about each wonder. However, many readers will find this an easy way to learn the salient points about many fantastic places, all in one book.
The primary arrangement is by continent, within which the wonders follow in chronological order. Each time you turn the page, you're reading about a different place. Every so often, there's a mini-chapter which generally describes civilizations or feats of man which proliferated, but couldn't be represented in a comprehensive way (e.g., "The Inca Empire" and "Houses of God"). These touch on key points, and might inspire the reader to pursue further study of more in-depth literature.
Each of the wonders is presented very simply: a world map in the corner, with a dot showing where on the planet it is situated; below that, a tiny political boundary map depicting area cities; two or three nice color photos; a five- to ten-paragraph description of the wonder; and lastly, a few paragraphs of complementary information relating to some part of history or related trivia. For example, the entry for The Grand Canal (Venice) has interesting notes about the gondola and Piazza San Marco.
As with any "best of" book, one may question why some things are included and others are not, but that's an argument I won't take up here. Yes, there are surely more than 100 magnificent places/things to see in the world; however, what's in this book is worth reading about, and I'd recommend "Wonders of the World" to just about anyone.
