Planning my trip around America has been made a lot easy with the help of this book. I would definately recommend it.
What makes a travel guide useful is the abundance of good photographs along with detailed maps and comprehensive indexing. The USA Rough Guide (Kindle edtion) fails to satisfy any of these criteria; there are very few images; the maps are unreadable and can't be zoomed (or printed using a computer); and there is no index. The latter is most annoying and unnecessary and no thought seems to have been given by the editors as to how people use a travel guide!
When using a printed copy of a guide, the index is invaluable for looking up the name of a town or sight one is about to visit. With the Kindle, you have to do a word search but this comes up with every mention of the name in the whole book - not only the main entry for that location. Consequently, you frequently have to wade through a mass of irrelevant entries to get to the one you want. I really don't understand why they didn't provide a full index.
All in all, a complete waste of time unless space and a few extra ounces of weight in your luggage are critical!
The prices are all wrong, not by $1 or $2 dollars, I'm talking $10-20 for entrance to places. I understand prices fluctuate but this needs to be updated.
The only thing it was useful for is maps. I'd stick to Lonely Planet in the future.
