'Full of fascinating details in writing, graphics and photos, Iceland delves deeply into the country in a format that often resists depth. Evans knows the country, and it shows.' JUDGES' COMMENTS - Society of American Travel Writers Foundation 2008 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Silver Award for Best Guidebook '...highly informative.' Transworld Surf 'Recommended reading' Country Walking magazine 'The second updated edition of ICELAND is for independent travelers who want to explore the country's many gorgeous settings, and provides a rare in-depth travel guide geared to independent travelers. Practical advice for accommodation, nature, and the outdoors are contained in a satisfying synthesis of history, cultural insights, and practical travel applications. There are relatively few travel guides devoted to Iceland alone, making this a top recommendation for independent travelers to Iceland who want a thorough guide to just that country, not the regional guides which are more commonly offered.'

mine however has some errors. the maps are terrible: the first leaving out all the non-english alphabet in a printing error, so leaving you guessing what '_r_j_kull' is for example. some other maps aren't very in detail, such as the vatnajokull section has pages on certain places which aren't even on the map.
the only other problem was that there is no price indication for the accomodation. a classification system is used instead, but this can have a range of £50 for the budget ones (6,000-16000) which isn't ideal. its useful to have some idea even if price have changed by the time you go.
Could I criticise it? Only on a couple of small points. It could do with more illustrations. This is definitely an old school guide where the text is, as I've said, detailed and thorough. It's not a glossy DK type photo-led title. But a few more illustrations of the features would not go amiss. Likewise maps of locales would go down well. But that's almost nitpicking. If you want to really find out about this fascinating country, this is the guide to go for.
