When we decided to ride through the Alps, this book was a common reference among every specialized forum or discussion group. Everyone thought highly of it; so I went and bought it.
I was aiming high and felt, after reading it, disappointed. The maps references were confusing or lacking, and a general map would be of great use.
I don't want to end this review without mentioning the good points this "guide" has:
1. It's massive and covers a whole lot of the Alps territory;
2. It's told in the first person, always riding a bike;
In short, if it were today I would still buy it, but there's room for improvement.
