Fodor's and Frommer's, take notice. A formidable competitor has just entered the travel guide arena. The new "National Geographic Traveler" series comes with the winning formula of in-depth reporting and breathtaking photography that have long made National Geographic Society's monthly magazine a favorite of armchair adventurers. -- The Atlanta Journal & Constitution, June 13, 1999

There must be some worried guidebook publishers out there. The National Geographic Traveler is producing a series of travel guides sure to push some competing titles off book counters.

The publishers of National Geographic Traveler add to the ever-growing number of travel guides with this new series; subsequent entries will include Canada, London, Paris, and Great Britain. Modeled closely on entries in DK's "Eyewitness Travel" series, each volume is filled with recommended walks and drives, detailed information on the usual tourist attractions, floor plans, color maps, and, of course, plenty of trademark National Geographic photographsAglossy, interesting, and colorful. New York focuses on Manhattan but briefly explores the outer boroughs, the Hudson Valley, and Long Island. France is divided into regions (e.g., the Loire Valley, Corsica). Each book ends with travel advice (when to go, what to take, getting there, getting around) and a short list of recommended hotels and restaurants. As with the DK series, these books are not inexpensive, but they pack a lot of information into a compact format ideal for taking along on a trip. If your library can afford both series, your patrons will be doubly delighted. For all travel collections.ALinda M. Kaufmann, Massachusetts Coll. of Liberal Arts, North Adams
