This is a great guidebook, fresh and current. But the Nook version is faulty in that many of the maps are incomplete in the restaurant section (I'm having problems getting other sections to load). Part of the map displays with locator numbers, but the legend identifying the restaurants is missing. It's like a page or two is not included. Too bad. The electronic version with this flaw can' t take the place of a paper edition.
