The Lonely Planet Story Tony & Maureen Wheeler
Large PB 392 pages
Very good condition
The founders of Lonely Planet have written their autobiography, reflecting on over 30 years spent travelling the world and writing guidebooks to help others follow in their footsteps

Just finished this breakneck autobiographical tour through the history of the ubiquitous Lonely Planet guidebook company, written by its two founders, Tony and Maureen Wheeler. Well, written by Tony actually, with occasional interjections from Maureen as the narrative progresses. It’s a shame that Maureen didn’t write more of it, because Tony Wheeler’s intensely practical mind (he was an engineer by trade before getting the travel bug) means that this autobiography is big on facts and figures but quite short on feelings and reflections. Every chapter is a relentless recounting of the travel schedule for that period of their lives, which in some places reads more like a bare bones itinerary than a travelogue.
