So this isn't a book you would pop in your purse as you traipse around India (at 760+ pages, and around 2-3 pounds, I would guess!), but there is a ton of good info in here. From the food you should try, to the foods you should probably avoid, if you want to not experience tummy troubles, you'll find lots of good tips in here. What is good is that you'll find India literally top to bottom here, which is great if you are going to spend a month or more and really explore everywhere. You'll find recommendations on where to stay, what to do do, etc. for almost every place. Unfortunately, India is such an enormous country, the book really does not go into detail about any one place, except a couple of the larger cities. So, Mumbai, Delhi, etc. are covered more in-depth. So... I found this as a terrific starting place. I read it cover to cover, and then bought a couple of other books that specifically covered the area that I am going to be staying in for a wedding later in the year. Overall... well-written and a good foundation.
