Footprint Tibet Handbook:The Travel Guide Reviews
Gyurme Dorje's book is indispensable for anyone, traveler or scholar, curious about Tibetan geography. It is the single best source for location-based information, as well as being very thorough with succinct summaries of significant cultural, historical and religious information.
I actually read the 2004 and 2009 editions, the latter not yet noted in Goodreads. I'm planning to go to a less traveled part of Tibet this summer, and this guidebook included a fairly decent map and description of attractions in this obscure area. By contrast, Lonely Planet's Tibet basically features the Tibet Autonomous Region. After the trip, I may amend this review, so stay tuned.
Fantastic but not really armchair reading; more of a preparatory and guidebook
