It's handy for travel guides to be small and easy to carry around, but they also need to have print that is big enough to read without squinting.

The content, as far as I can see is OK - helpful and interesting - if a bit skimpy (not much, for example about the Murales di Sardinia, while it mentions 4 treni verde routes but only describes one in any detail, and...

This review is from: Sardinia: Alghero & the North (Footprint Focus) (Footprint Focus Guide) (Paperback)
It's handy for travel guides to be small and easy to carry around, but they also need to have print that is big enough to read without squinting.

The content, as far as I can see is OK - helpful and interesting - if a bit skimpy (not much, for example about the Murales di Sardinia, while it mentions 4 treni verde routes but only describes one in any detail, and there is no rail map of the island) but the eyestrain involved in reading it limits its usefulness. The map of Sardinia is very small, again with tiny print, and no grid lines or grid references in the text, so it's difficult to find places on it. A decent map is, for me an important part of a guide book and I'd have liked something larger - perhaps a fold out map of the north, the area covered in the book.

This guide might be fine for youngsters with great eyesight, but I struggled with it, even wearing my glasses. It was cheap, but I wish I'd paid more and got something more useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Content undermined by poor design, 3 Feb 2013

This review is from: Sardinia: Alghero & the North (Footprint Focus) (Footprint Focus Guide) (Paperback)
Yes, it does fit comfortably in your pocket.
Yes, it is packed with useful information but.............................
If you are going to provide maps please make them relevant and readable.
The size of this book means that the maps are infrequent and those printed are too small to be of any practical use.
The book's design makes it difficult to use.
These factors combined undermine what would otherwise have been a good guide and undermine the good work of the author.
