This book gives a great overview of the country, and I always love the history and background sections in the beginning. In fact, I was able to have informed discussions and ask the good, information-gathering kind of questions about the revolution and political situation based almost entirely off what I read in the guidebook. I learned tons by talking to people while in Nicaragua too of course, but I wouldn't have know where to start or what to ask about without the LP crash course.
Some of the info about restaurants and places to stay is outdated, but the edition is from 2009, so that's to be expected. But tripadvisor.com and hostelworld.com and even the loneley planet forums are the best places to get that sort of time sensitive information anyhow.
I don't have much experience with any of the other guidebook brands, but I think a good rule of thumb is to go with the the one most recently published. Unless you're an LP diehard like me and you're willing to put in the extra research.
