This is my first book review as I have never previously felt compelled to share my opinion with everyone, but.....
I bought this book to accompany my girlfriend and I on our trip to the BVI. We had been recommended to go to the Cane Garden Beach area and I thought I would buy a book, read about the area, take a look at some pictures and find a few 'areas of outstanding natural beauty' for day trips. To my surprise a book about one of the most eye-catching locations on earth had....
NOT ONE PHOTOGRAPH!!
Do not buy this book unless you want some really useless basic information, line drawings and a VERY American bias.
I can not compare to another book as this is the only one I have to date. But, I can say I have found better information on the web (FREE! and with great pictures) and spoke to more useful people on the travel talk online bulletin board.
Holiday mistake number 1: Bought this book.
Holiday mistake number 2: Threw away the receipt and packaging so I have to keep it
I'm off now to see what I can get for it in the auction.

i cannot provide a personal opinion on this book as it was chosen as a gift. However, my recipient was delighted with this copy of the British Virgin Islands edition and, apparently, it arrived within a very short time of my ordering it.
