    An excellent guide to 'just' the islands!

    The principal difference between this book and 'Frommer's Greece' is that this one covers the option of selecting a cruise of the islands, and that section is very good. So, if a major concerm is choosing a cruise line (or ship) for your Greek vacation, take a look at this guide. Otherwise, 'Frommer's Greece' covers all the mainland (and all the islands) for the same price. Frommer's stands out for clear writing, logical indexing, and especially for running the gamut from budget tourism to the more affluent. His starred system with comments for value or attractiveness to family is understandable with good common sense. Studying Frommer's helps me make the decisions I personally want to make. It will save you many times the price of the book and make your stay much more enjoyable.
