Travel Books by Tom Brosnahan

Lonely Planet Turkey, cover of 1st edition Lonely Planet Turkey, cover of 2nd edition Lonely Planet Turkey, cover of 7th edition

1st edition (1985) of my Lonely Planet guide. It displaced my Frommerguide (below) as the best-seller.

My 2nd (1988) LP guide. My cover photo almost caused a diplomatic incident.

My latest (and last) Lonely Planet guide (7th, 2001; with co-authors Pat Yale and Richard Plunkett).

Turkey on $5 a Day, 1st edition Lonely Planet Istanbul, 2nd edition Turkey Travel Atlas, 1st edition

My first book (1971), for Frommer’s. To my surprise, it soon became the best-seller to the destination.

2nd edition of my Lonely Planet Istanbulguide (1999), with cover photo by my friend Kim Grant.

LP Turkey Travel Atlas: I set up a database to deal with the 12,000 town and village names.

Disclaimer: my Turkey Travel Planner website has no relationship whatsoever with Frommer’s or Lonely Planet Publications or the guidebooks published by these companies. At present I am fully employed producing Turkey Travel Planner and other websites, so I am not employed by either of these companies and I devote no time to maintaining or updating any of their publications. Because I was the original and longtime author of guides published by these companies, my name may still be mentioned in these and later editions of these books as a courtesy and/or acknowledgement of my earlier contributions to these works. —Tom Brosnahan
