2.0 out of 5 stars Very vague, good for 1st time travelers only., 2 Sep 2007
This review is from: The Rough Guide to the First-Time Around the World - Edition 2 (Paperback)
I bought this book for my upcoming trip around the world, although I have done some traveling, I needed advice on round the world specifically.
This book is really vague, although it has some good general country information, the travel prices are very general and it has no specific info on flights, tickets etc. It doesn't contain enough information to actaully book and plan your trip.
It's much more suited for those who have never traveled before. If you've strapped on a backpack don't bother! I found other guides far more informative with solid up to date info in such as gap year guides - lonely planet and gap year.com.

It is a rough guide to travelling. It gives you the basics to begin planning a trip not everything needed, obviously other sources will be needed aswel.
