Item reviewed: 2012 edition

This book is divided into the following sections:

- Visiting the USA including Practical info (18 pp)
- USA at a Glance including history (36 pp)
- The different regions of the USA divided into 14 regions (Florida, Texas and California are regions unto themselves) (700 pp)
- Index (Good, but in small print) (30 pp).

The 51 states (counting Washington DC) are therefore allocated just under 14 pp each on average. This is sufficient to tell you what the important things to see are, to include some town maps and a few cut-away drawings such as of the White House; and even some recommendations for accommodation and restaurants. I have used it for the planning of a one-month trip. It is inadequate for any very detailed planning (if needed) or for the actual visit. The USA is a very large country and more specialised regional guides, e.g. DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: California and DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Southwest USA & Las Vegas if applicable, should be taken. At 1 kg it is not an impossible burden, but it should have done its job before you set out and is thus now redundant.

Iam a great fan of DK Eyewitness Travel Guides as they are so easy to dip into. I have yet to visit the USA and will probably start with California and the Western national Parks but decided to get an overall view of what is on offer on the other side of the Atlantic and was not disappointed.

Rather too big to take with us, but a super guide to plan our next break on the Eastern seaboard.

It is the latest edition. I saw an earlier one in our local library and wanted to buy one for myself. I like the cover. I am very happy with it.

All the Eyewitness guides are informative, superbly illustrated and full of tips. This one is no exception. I would not buy any other.

Getting to know the US from Coast to Coast, visiting and learning from its most important places and cities is definitely a must for all of those who love travelling!

Unfortunately USA is a big country & this guide only covers the areas in general but the detail is good & the illustraions excellent. You would need many volumes to do the USA justice.
