3.0 out of 5 stars A thin guide, mistitled 22 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
The shortcomings of this guide are evident from the title. It turns our it also includes Newfoundland & Labrador, but the title gives no clue!
I used it just to tour Nova Scotia for a few days. When sightseeing in Halifax I realised that the guide gave no mention of the Provincial Legislature building, a strange omission for the leading public building in the province, which is of architectural interest and only one block away from the bustling waterfront area. After that discovery I tended not to rely on the guide too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars It pretty much does the job 15 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a good general guide which is easy to read. It would be improved if a good road map or maps were included.

2.0 out of 5 stars Title is very misleading, and very little on Cape Breton Island. 20 July 2014
By D. A. Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Positive things: it's new. The "Understanding NS/NB/PEI" section was very interesting and made me wish there were more to it.

First off - and this is by far my biggest beef with this book - the cover is not correct; it also covers Newfoundland and Labrador. I don't see this as a "you get 52 extra pages on something else also!", I see it as "you bought a book that has 52 pages on something you didn't know about and potentially don't care about, which could have been spent on 52 pages more on the three things listed on the cover!" Seriously, the Newfoundland and Labrador section is way bigger than the PEI section and even bigger than the New Brunswick section. I'm perfectly competent to buy a book on Newfoundland if I wanted it, but this book wasn't supposed to be about that, so why are all these pages dedicated to it? You want to know what the "Top 10" sites for "Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island" is? Well, buy a ferry ticket because you'll have to go to Newfoundland for numbers 5 and 8. It's like nobody was paying attention to this. I would have definitely bought a different book had I realized a lot of it was covering somewhere I was not visiting.

Have from a few days to two weeks to visit "NS/NB/PEI"? Their itineraries will not have you set foot on Cape Breton Island (which is a big part of Nova Scotia). Only their "head straight to Newfoundland" tour would have you go through Cape Breton Island. I can't take their recommendations very seriously if this is the only itinerary they offer to travelers that recommends travelers go to Cape Breton Island. Just TWELVE pages of this entire book are devoted to CBI, which is, for my money, the most beautiful and interesting part of NS/NB/PEI. Thinking that more of the Newfoundland/Labrador section could have been used for pages on CBI made me much more frustrated.

Also, I found the accommodations section to be almost useless, but this might be an issue with the Lonely Planet style. On my previous trip to the region, and my upcoming one, out of 18 total nights spent in NS/NB/PEI, only two of those nights were/will be spent in places mentioned in this book. It just doesn't list many places at all in the cities and towns it covers. I'm much more likely to find good information about lodging on the big online trip advising website or by using Google Earth to look for accommodations in those places I will be visiting.

By the way, I'm surprised they even spelled Prince Edward Island correctly on the front, seeing how they call it "Price Edward Island" in big bold letters twice (on page 153 and 158).

This is the only travel book I bought for my upcoming trip there, and I wish it would have been more helpful for the places I am visiting.
4.0 out of 5 stars Stop using UPS for delivery! 22 Aug 2014
By Laurie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is great, BUT Amazon's delivery method (aka UPS) sucks. I had a very hard time dealing with correct delivery and finally getting them hold the book at UPS for me to pick up. When I got it, the box was all beat up and more or less broken open. SWITCH TO FEDEX! I will try to NOT order another book through Amazon until that happens and I advise others to do the same.
