As a Nigerian, I was really excited when I found out that Bradt (a series I love) had commissioned a Nigeria guide. Imagine then my surprise when I realised that the author had based the majority of her knowledge of 'expats' living in Nigeria and didn't even bother to travel to some areas of the country!

This is a lazy review of Nigeria and it is not helped by the fact that the author seems to despise the country - in the introduction she states about the country - "Nothing worls and everything is seriously dilapidated". Having travelled extensively around Africa, using the Bradt series - I think this way a poorly written adn poorly researched edition.

Nigeria is not an ideal tourist destination - but it is a beautiful country filled with amazing venues and joyful people - this book fails to capture the spirit of Nigeria and therefore is a poor guide to anyone truly looking to explore Nigeria.

This is the first Bradt Guide that I have bought and I am impressed with the Nigeria edition. Apart from being written recently and containing up to date information it is well written and give a great insight into the country and what to expect by someone who has obviously spent time there. I read it before I left for the country and use it constantly as I travel for business. I would recommend it to any traveler to Nigeria whether on business or less likely, as a tourist.

I have lived in Nigeria now for over seven years and I met Lizzie when she came to Lagos to write the book. Within the space of a few weeks, Lizzie has come to understand Nigeria and the Nigerian people in a way that many long term residents have not. Time and time again I found myself recognising places and situations exactly as I had experienced them. She writes with great empathy for her subject and tells it as it is, the good and the bad. I showed it to a couple of my Nigerian friends and they loved it, agreeing with almost all Lizzie had to say. This book is quite simply a must for anyone living in or visiting Nigeria, as well as being a cracking good read.

A useful book to have but you can find a lot of the information through a google search. Nevertheless it was good to refer to during the six weeks I was volunteering in Nigeria and it gave me a number of ideas of things to do.
