I had the misfortune to have my Lonely Planet to South America stolen from me half way through a four month trip. I then picked this up in a book exchange, and figured it would be just as good. It wasn't, and travelling for 2 months with it was constantly frustrating. Bad maps, missing information, nowhere near as good details on transport as Lonely Planet, it was more often frustrating than it was useful. The Lonely Planet is much better - and probably best of all is the Footprint guide, which is excellent in just about every way in terms of the info it contains (although I find the layout slightly easier in Lonely Planet).
