But even that seems to be too high a price for the value of the content. As the picture suggests, the entire contents of this "book" are derived from what is typically a sidebar in a typical Lonely Planet guide to a neighboring city (Los Angeles, for example). There is a brief write up about some places to visit, some restaurants and nightspots, but nothing that could not have been obtained by clicking on the first Google search results for "visit San Diego".
There is not much content here. Since I read this on the kindle I do not have page numbers, but here is a percentage breakdown:
0-4%: Cover, credits, table of contents
6% - 32%: a list of 22 places to visit, eat and drink at, or stay in. This part also has three pages of maps that are largely useless on a kindle e-ink format. Maps on your smartphone are far more usable.
35% - 60%: the same list of places, but with websites and phone numbers
64% - 100%: credits for book contributors, notes of thanks, acknowledgements, a list of Lonely Planet offices worldwide.
In my opinion, even the most cursory flier picked up at an airport tourism counter would be more useful than this "book".
page 3-8: few sight seeings, restaurants, hotel recommendations, all together these 22 items pointed on mini maps
page 9-12: behind the scenes, i.e. zero-value added information.
page 13: advertisement
The skinny content explains why is only 2 pages of free preview available.
