The Party Version of 1000 Places to See Before You Die?

There have been a couple of "pre-release" news articles written about Party Across America and they've all said that it's like the party version of 1000 Place To See Before You Die. I guess I can see the parallels, but as the bias author, I have to respectfully disagree.

1000 Places To See Before You Die pretty much lists each place and gives a super brief description of each. This book is more like a Lonley Planet or any other guidebook - it provides complete guidance, including where to stay, hotel prices, when to buy tickets, local public transportation, what to pack, and tons of party tips. I guess it's nice to be compared to such a successful book, but I just feel like 1000 Places to See is more of a list than an actual guidebook. Anyone agree?

I would call 1000 places to see before you die an actual guide book as it tells you when the best time is to travel to the places and also gives you website addresses which is useful. It gives brief descriptions which tell enough to make you decide if you want to go there or not. It's already a thick book so more details would be too much.
