    Recommended - Good Depth, Less Breadth

    Compared to other USA books, it covers a lot less places. However, for the places it does cover, it gives good detailed information. It is more helpful than the other books in helping me decide which attractions to visit in each place, and which I might want to skip. With this information, I find myself going to the web a lot less to plan my itinerary. Check to make sure it covers the places you want to visit. If so, this is a great book.
