I like the tell-it-how-it-is attitude displayed in the text, and perhaps a future edition will tidy up the errors in what would otherwise be a five-star book.
What I found most annoying is that most places are described as dull, or of no interest (what's the point of including them in the guide then?!) and there are supposedly "funny" comments such as "Hello. My name is Newport and I'm a bit of a dump" (p.106). And the paragraph goes on like that to say that now the situation has improved... Besides finding similar comments often inappropriate, I don't care what the author likes or dislikes: I want to be able to judge by myself, especially because we figured out right away that the places the authors recommended the most were the ones we liked the least.
Very commercial places are praised, whereas more beautiful off-the-beaten-path places are not included or not recommended if mentioned.
I found this guidebook incredibly bad and I have the feeling that it's mostly because the travelling style of the authors is really different from ours. Still, I had never come across such an opinionated travel writing in a guidebook. Save the money and try some other guidebook.
