This slim volume is a list of places and things to do in Kentucky. It offers "100 Ways to Have a Real Kentucky Experience" (no, not that kind of experience by the way).

The book is very simple. It opens with a disclaimer (i.e. author is not responsible for any outcomes of doing things on the bucket list so do not go trying to sue). Then, we get a short introduction followed by a "what to expect" short section. After that, we get the list. Each item gets a page listing the item, a general location (no specific addresses or such. You'll have to seek out directions elsewhere), and a small quote by a celebrity somewhat related to the item. Other than a list, the book offers very little. It's just a list, not much more. If you want to try doing the list, I suppose you could buy it, but this is just a quick read and move on kind of book. I liked it, but it's no big deal.

3 out of 5 stars.
