Superficial, poor maps,
This review is from: Southwest USA (Lonely Planet Country & Regional Guides) (Paperback)
What made me buy this specific book was that it was (at the time, early summer 2009) the newest edition available. However, for our 2 week road trip of the area it proved to be disappointing, and not the best guide of the area.
The style of the writing is chattering, in parts even naive, and the maps are totally useless. Not worthwhile, at least as the sole source of information during a trip.
We also reviewed The Rough Guide to Southwest USA (Rough Guide to Southwest USA: Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah). Unfortunately it was a library book that I couldn't take with us, but looking back I would certainly recommend it over this one.
