At over 1100 pages it is fairly heavy, so worth making note of when you pack your luggage, but it is worth it.
The amount of detail is wonderful. It contains maps, street maps, tourist information locations and opening hours, fares and prices for transport and expected rates for meals and accomodation all over Canada. Details of scenic walks and drives and things to do and visit are listed for almost everywhere we went.
What we believe let it down was the fairly negative opinions of a great number of places - it rarely seems to have anything good to say about anywhere, although it describes the places in detail every time.
Calgary as an example it says has only two things worth visiting it for - the Stampede and the Museum (which is amazing). But there is so much more to the place and we disagreed with that view. The book does detail places to eat, visit, stay and suchlike, so it doesn't ignore it.
Several areas receive the same treatment - Prince George is certainly more intersting than the book's opinion.
So, a remarkably detailed book which we find essential. Just ignore the negative attitude that abounds within it.
Found the book helpful, particularly the parts relating to Alberta and Saskatchewan, as well as Churchill. Other guides don't cover in as much detail, particularly the more remote areas. Very informative and useful.
I'm sure this book is good for people with plenty of money to spend. However, if like me you enjoy eating at nice places and not paying the earth for accommodation then stick with lonely planet. This book wont be going in my suitcase (only wish I could get a refund) and I'll be taking a digital chapter of lonely planet instead.
