This was a great buy, and pretty much your ONLY choice in printed travel reference if you are going to Newfoundland and Labrador. The internet is useful, but unless you find it useful to print out and collate many disparate sources, you probably should get a book instead. This isn't the kind of destination that you can probably ask friends about - while a gorgeous, ruggedly beautiful place, it's not a top vacation spot! - so you will definitely want to consult a book before you find yourself there with no good leads on where to eat, where to stay, what to visit, what to do, etc. Frommer's, as usual, has put together everything useful about this destination in one place. I found it especially useful regarding the dates certain attractions are open. One doesn't want to drive many hundreds of miles across this vast and isolated land only to find that the thing you wanted to visit hasn't opened yet for the season!
