This is a very interesting, factual book with lots of gems of information which you don't get in other travel guides that concentrate more on the 'tourist' areas. Well worth buying.
The cover makes it look a bit outdated but do not let that put you off. It does not have any glossy pictures but this does not detract from the content. To get the best from this book have a map by the side of you while you read it to find the best places to visit.
