Lonely Planet is the largest travel guide book and digital media publisher in the world.
Lonely Planet's first book, "Across Asia on the Cheap", was written and published by Englishman Tony Wheeler, a former engineer at Chrysler Corp and the University of Warwick and London Business School graduate, and his wife Maureen Wheeler in Sydney in 1973,
The founders, Tony and Maureen Wheeler, have written a book titled "Once While Travelling: The Lonely Planet Story" (known as "Unlikely destinations: The Lonely Planet story" in North America) telling how they met and married, how they travelled from London to Australia overland and how Lonely Planet was formed.
On October 1, 2007 the commercial arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) acquired Lonely Planet.
