Review: Africa (Lonely Planet Guide)

User Review  - Daniel - Goodreads

Yea. I read the whole thing. Information about all 53 countries. That's just how obsessed I am with the Motherland. My biggest problem with the book is I wanted more historical information/background about each of the countries and I found that to be the weakest aspect of the book. Read full review
