Format: Paperback
I picked up this book because it claimed on the cover to also have some information about the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. However, having left and sat down with a coffee, I discovered that the Falklands Islands consisted of around 2 or 3 pages with barely any information on what to see there or how to travel around. This makes it of little use for planning a trip, but does fill in a 5 minute gap waiting for the bus!
Looking through the rest of the book on Antarctica, it it had an older style 'educational' feel with distinct sections on 'wildlife' and 'explorers', rather than an integrated guide broken down by area. Overall the book was rather thin both in size and content, and would perhaps appeal more to children as educational interest. If you want to discover more about Antarctica both for your general interest and as a good travel guide, I'd highly recommend the Lonely Planet guide - it is considerably more substantial, better written and comprehensive in content.

First class book, filled with good facts and easy to read. 4 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for anyone who plans to travel south of Argentina. The book has brief but satisfying histories of the area, discriptions of what difficulties and enjoyments polar regions offer visitors and masses of what to do and how to do it. It is a splendid little manual for all who hanker after an exotic, safe and pleasant trip to Antarctica, the Falklands and South Georgia..

A good basic guide to Antarctic travel and resources 13 Feb. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book basically covers it all- wildlife, history, how to get there, what there is once you get there. It is portable and readable, with all the most basic information you need- but it is not a comprehensive guide book, like the Lonely Planet guide. José Kirchner
Good book overall 18 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. I bought it to learn about Antarctica, and initially, I was a little disappointed with the seemingly superfluous information such as which cruises are available, etc. But there is some really interesting information in this book that seems trivial but is really fascinating, such as what people on Antarctica eat or what they do to keep themselves occupied. I really enjoyed this book and I finished it thinking I had just acquired a wealth of knowledge about the mysterious continent.
