    Very out of date only one month after its publication.

    Despite its recent publication date (Feb. 2004), this book is riddled with errors and omissions. Here are several examples of the errors and omissions in this book: - The address given for the main Tourist Information Centre in Auckland is incorrect; the bookstore at the address listed has been there for three years. - There internet café supposedly next door to the non-existent Information Centre isn't there either. - Two gay bars listed on K Road in Auckland are not at the addresses given. The sign at one of the addresses says it belongs to ¿New Zealand¿s longest-established [straight] strip club, established 1962.¿ - Other than a brief mention on the ¿What¿s New¿ page and a half-page grey box listing a few sightseeing suggestions, the book completely omits the major tourist center of Kaikoura. The town is 2-1/2 hours from Christchurch, certainly too far for a day-trip, yet the book gives no city information, hotel listings, map, or restaurant suggestions. I have been satisfied with Frommer¿s travel guides in the past and have never seen a travel guide as poorly edited and revised as this one. I am frankly angry that I spent money on a supposedly newly published guide that had so much out-of-date information in it. It was a waste of money.
