Read full description of the books:



This is the book you read before you go on your trips, as it is really too heavy to want to lug around. Nonetheless, this book gives a nice overview of the history, contemporary culture, and travel highlights of the country and is a surprisingly good read. The writers really did their homework. Page after page I was continually surprised by some little anecdote or fact e.g. more books are published and bought here per capita than anywhere else in the world (p. 61), that 1 in 10 Icelanders publishes something in their lifetime (p. 74), that women held a mass strike in 1975 to mark the beginning of the United Nations Women's Decade (p. 78), that they have amongst the highest life expectancies (p. 61), that their language has changed little since the age of the Vikings (p. 89), that chess was a common pastime in Iceland through the Middle Ages and that there have been 11 grandmasters in chess from Iceland over the years (p. 256). I could go on. In fact, I continued to read it long after I returned from my travels. For those who are looking for detailed travel information, I would suggest the Lonely Planet Iceland/Reykjavik edition, but if you want a nicely written, photo-laden overview of this truly unforgettable country, check out Insight Guide: Iceland.
