I am thinking of going to Mongolia and bought this book as a supplement to standard guide books. I wanted to see what the different areas of the country look like. I am very pleased with the book. Beautiful photographs - not too artsy - and with a high quality of production. Covers many areas of the country. The text is well written and informative. I was somewhat puzzled that there was no copyright date. I assume the book was translated from German or some Scandinavian language, or imported from one of those places, given the authors' names. If so, a well-done translation.
