15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. A. Coxhead on 3 Sep 2008
Format: Paperback
I have recently returned from a trip using both the Lonely Planet to the Middle East and a separate country guide to Jordan. This particular compilation is sparse on cultural, historical and practical information (it is no more than 150 pages longer than the entire single country guide to Egypt), generally out of date (in particular, regarding prices and budgeting) and often misguiding (for example, several maps are marked with street names that are completely incorrect). If you are looking for a guide book to help plan a trip to the Middle East then you would be better off considering a different series, investigating the single country guides or not taking one at all.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By C. D. Middleton on 27 April 2011
Format: Paperback
When Lonely Planet brought out 'South East Asia on a Shoestring' they really broke the mould and provided probably the best travel book ever written.
Then they put out 'China' and 'India' and both books were superb and I have really put them all to the test.

Then I plan my next trip and get 'Middle East' expecting the same high standards of text, graphics and information I was genuinely let down.
The book is lacking so much vital information - Particularly in regards to Border Crossings and anywhere off the beaten track that it renders itself useless.
Whilst this edition is aged a little I seriously hope they burn this and completely re write the next edition. It is that poor.

Format: Paperback
Like the other reviewers have already commented the tittle of the book is partly misleading. It only covers a part of the Middle East (Turkey, Egypt and the Levant) and excludes for instance the Gulf countries. If you are also visiting just one of the countries, there are much better and more comprehensive guides. I bought the book to plan to which countries to visit and at what time of the year and it has been useful for that. It is done in traditional Lonely Planet style with a lot of data, especially for budget travelers, and not many pictures.

Book is very out of date, and not really of much help other than giving a brief idea of what is available to visit in each country. Many hotels are no longer there, and prices are x2 to x4 fold what is stated in the book. There should be a new version of this guide out in the next few months so i would suggest to wait for that. All in all, its well written and informative, but if your visiting only one or two countries in the area then its best to stick to the book for that specific country.

Recieved this book on time.

I have been using this book to plan my trip of the middle east. Very useful, informative and concise. I have not started my trip yet, but since reading this book i'm confident that my trip will be great.
