2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed 12 July 2014
By rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually swear by rough guide - I have countless travel guides by them and they've been amazing to have on my adventures. But this one really, really disappointed. I've never written a bad review before, but I felt like I just had to…

Firstly the kindle edition is truly un-navigatable. The layout doesn't work for a guide book, it's the links aren't helpful, as to flip betweens sections you have to repeatedly go to the front, find the chapter and then scroll through numerous pages… I've spent more time looking for things in the book than I have actually using it…

Aside from the poor kindle format, the actual information is really sparse compared to similar guide books I've got on other countries. I get that the USA is huge, but this book barely covers anything. I also found it's method of organising everything terribly confusing. Overall I actually really regret buying this, and I've never regretted buying anything from rough guide before.

I truly wouldn't waste your money on this, maybe buy a more specialised guide on a particular state, because this doesn't really do anything. Also the maps I found to be pretty poor too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid book 9 May 2014
By Jenny
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nearly always buy rough guides when I go on holiday and again this is a really good book. What I probably should have done is bought the rough guide to california as that is the area I am interested in and it would probably go into more detail. However, still okay with this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as comprehensive as I had hoped for 11 April 2014
By jeff63
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had ordered this book in anticipation of a trip to New York and Las Vegas later this year and the fact it was an updated copy was in its favour. I found unfortunately that it did not give the range of detail I was seeking for either destination, as I have mobility issues I had hoped there would be some information on these issues but what there was was very sparse, but I suppose it was actually impractical with USA being such a vast place, so I will investigate books that deal with the cities as individual places instead. Layout seemed ok but nothing special
