3.0 out of 5 stars A lot of information - maps confusing though 26 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am sure that this guide is as well written as it can be - when it comes to Buenos Aires trying to find the right places to stay either end of the trip was well confusing as week long lets were predominant in the book - the overlapping maps of the city were really difficult to sort out . I guess most people buying the book would be looking to vacation in Argentina but we are using it as a launch point for Antarctica trip .

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving for my trip 1 Jan 2013
By Ryan P. Ver Berkmoes - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book even if you don't yet have your Antarctica travel date. It is both engaging and deeply informative on the closest place we can get to another planet. There is a beautiful full-color wildlife section, with great shots of penguins and other wildlife, both iconic and unknown. The author's time spent on the continent can be found in the expert advice and knowledge found in every chapter. This book will be an excellent companion when the time comes for my trip so that I can get full value from my money and time spent.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Concise Travel Guide 13 April 2014
By Suzette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Kindle version of Lonely Planet Antarctica was short and precise in answering all my questions regarding this continent. It will be easy to go back to my many bookmarked points as I need them. Likely I will read this book a second and third time as questions arise.
5.0 out of 5 stars I like this book for its detailed, yet concise inforfation and for its organization and ease of use. 1 April 2014
By Erika H. Simons - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I went to Antarctica in 2011 I did not have this travel guide with me. I frequently used my roommate's copy and found it very helpful when trying to recollect detailed information about places we had just seen, for my travel journal or to gather info about the next port of call. This updated copy has still more information and is very well organized. I'm very glad to have it as a reference and would recommend it to anybody traveling to Antarctica.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview 9 Feb 2014

Used as a reference and advance study for an Antarctic cruise. Handy to have along to identify what we saw. Photographs and information were very good.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very fine introduction to Antarctica for the casual tourist 27 Oct 2013
By Elizabeth Bullitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provides a very nice introduction to Antarctica (with a wonderful cover photo)! Of importance, the book includes a discussion of Ushuaia Argentina, from which most Antarctic cruises depart, as well as multiple islands that are not part of the Antarctic continent but that one might be likely to visit during a trip to the Antarctic peninsula. The volume is thus more comprehensive than one might expect--and covers important regions likely to be visited by the casual tourist.

The volume provides historical and geographical summaries, a discussion of the animal life, and (to this reader's delight) the odd and interesting story, such as that of the Russian physician who was required to remove his own appendix during an Antarctic winter.

The book does address, at least briefly, some of the conservation issues critical to Antarctica.

This book will likely not appeal to the most adventurous travelers who want to make overland treks via ski and dogsled to the geographical pole--but such individuals are unlikely to be looking for the kind of summary provided by Lonely Planet in any case. I can wholeheartedly recommend this volume, however, to the tourist who wants to make an introductory visit to this most remote continent.
