The hotel sections are sorely lacking information, and it feels that Tel Aviv is neglected in favour of Jerusalem.
Sections on the West Bank are fully thorough and better than other guidebooks.
I mean, even LP guides going back decades at least gave you a basic schematic map of a place, especially if such a place has multiple departure points for transport (as is the case in Nablus). I see this as just one example of where LP is slipping.
It has improved in other ways, but silly ommisions like that just slow travellers down. Secondly, when I buy a hardcopy paper guidebook I don't expect to read - "For more information on things to do and see, go to www.nablusguide.com" on a page. Owning a hard copy guide book should afford me the luxury of not having to carry a smartphone / netbook / laptop or tracking down an internet cafe. Authors outsourcing work by referring me to a website because they couldn't be bothered to research a place enough, makes me wonder why I bought the paper book in the first place. Clearly I have a few grievances with this book, several of which I'll spare you. On the credit side, it does cover some other areas well enough. Its information on areas in the Dead Sea was pretty good, as were pages on Jerusalem. On Golan it is quite light on coverage and if you are a budget traveller you probably wouldn't be using this guidebook for Golan because they keep listing zimmers and such accomodation which is extremely expensive for most travellers to consider. Camping and hiking is the way to explore Golan, unless you are wealthy.
