I think this is a book for getting a good taste of what the USA is like for traveler. For the first timer, it's a good place to start, 784-page book, a colorful and informative guide to the North American country of the United States of America.
It presents all the country, so each state hasn't much space in the book, I suggest before traveling to any city with tourist intentions, pick up a copy of the eyewitness travel guide for that city, you can't go wrong.
However, it is great for inspiring a good trip.
However, it does cover a lot of territory, so if you are only visiting one or two cities or states, you might be better advised to find a guide that concentrates just on the places you are interested in, or at least use this volume to choose those places..

Very interesting information and very well organized. A very good way to get to know the U.S.A. and to prepare a travel, which is what I intend to do.
But who is this book for? Outside the major cities and national parks, information is very brief. Many states get only 2 pages and most only 4 to 6.
Unless you are planning some US cross-country trip and are short of money, or want some travel inspiration, don't buy this book. Buy either a city guide, a state guide, or a regional guide, depending on where you're going. If you like the DK Eyewitness format, they publish plenty of city (eg New York, Washington, Philadelphia), state (California, Florida) or regional (New England) guides.
The book includes great pictures and information on the big cities (New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles) and all the states - including many of the larger towns within each state - plus a listing of all the best hotels/hostels and places to eat in each state.
This is a must have for any traveller.
Like all the Eyewitness Guides, there are guides to staying & eating for all budgets, things you must see and do and stunning photography.
If you are travelling around the USA this is definately the book for you!!
However, if you are concentrating longer periods of time in certain places I would recommend the Eyewitness guides for those areas as they are more in depth.
