The attempt to include several maps to different scales, which fold up into the rear flap, succeeds, but contains a serious error. It advertises the island's ten best beaches, but even the travel trade there admit to there being only three. It runs foul of the Trade Description Act. You don't go to Malta to have the family build endless sandcastles in the sun. For a start, those same authorities confess to summer temperatures in the mid, or even upper, 40s.
Another weakness is the means of treating the history of the island. You don't visit passively and expect to be entertained. To get the best out of the experience it's necessary to be familiar with the history of the island.. The DK guide deals with this in bite-size chunks, based upon the location being described at the time. Thus there is no continuity which allows a clear picture of how events have followed, one after the other, to interact. A short history need not be formidable, but doesn't find a place in this slim volume.Get yourself better informed elsewhere before your departure.
