In some ways, this book appears out of date, as it does not cover any more of the recent finds, but saying that, it is great for the older things. It's covery of the temples of Karnak and Luxor are good introductions to the sites. The covering of the valley of the kings, for its size is perfect.
When I used to go to Luxor, this was one of the books I always tool with me. I lost my copy and got this one to replace it,p

A great guide! 22 Dec 1999
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This guide was revised in 1996 and that is the edition I used when I visited Luxor in 1997. It is a first-rate guidebook that provides detailed descriptions of the temples, tombs, and other sites on both the east and west sides of the Nile. The book is logically organized and clearly written. The photographs are nothing to write home about, but there are diagrams for every site and they are keyed to the text for easy reference. This is the only guide you will need for the Luxor area. In fact, I have never seen a guide to any location as useful as this one is.
