DK books are renowned for their sumptuous illustrations and photographs. All the 'real' books of theirs that I own are superb references. It was therefore a safe bet to assume the space-saving kindle version would reflect the high standards of the paper counterparts? Oh no!

This was the most disappointing kindle purchase to date;hardly any illustrations - low resolution scans of a few basic maps and minimal information poorly organised.

I imagine the print copy might have made more sense in terms of being able to flick through to what is relevant but this doesn't work on digital books.

If I were to offer a comparison - think long thin green covered Michelin guides of the 1970s - really!

I was in New England for Two Weeks and used this once - and I regretted going with its recommendation.

Come on DK you can do way better than this - its like you forgot why your eyewitness books were so good. This almost feels like someone ripped off your copy, scanned a few low res maps and took a chance that you wouldn't notice?

Sensible and informative summary book with extremely useful removable durable map. Not too big and heavy. Restaurant recommendations a bit sparse though

I expected a e-version of the usually excellent dk top 10. Instead you get a barely usable kindle novel style book with far fewer images and maps. These are at low resolution and difficult to navigate. A PDF of an actual top 10 would work much better.

Just the right size, packed with info. and has an unfoldable map. DK are always so good with their visual information.

Inadequate as a guide to New England. In three weks touring we didn't use it once. Would definitely not recommend it.
