    Discover Peru!

    This is a travel guide that should be able to fulfill all your needs for information on what to do, how to do, where to go, etc... when you are visiting Peru. The authors did a magnificent job putting together this excellent travel guide.

    The book starts with a chapter called "This is Peru", followed by Peru's map and "25 Peru's Top Experiences", highlighting the most incredible places, foods, drinks, cultural activities etc that you cannot possible think about missing when going to Peru. Following this chapter you have "Peru's Top Itineraries" where the authors suggest a 5-days, a 10-days and a 2-weeks itineraries, that you can use as a baseline depending on your availability. After that you have a "Peru Month by Month" with a calendar with the regular activities that happens around the year. Then you have a "What's New" and a "Need to Know" with general information on currency, language, driving, tipping, internet access etc.
    After this initial introduction, the authors start describing places to visit, starting with Lima, followed by Nazca, Arequipa & the South, Puno & Lake Titicaca, Cuzco, Machu Picchu & Around, Huaraz, Trujillo & the North, and finally Iquitos & the Amazon Basin. For each segment there is an introduction with the history, a map and beautiful photos, highlights, where to eat, what to visit, where to stay, costs for attractions, hours of operations, etc

    This is an outstanding result for a combined effort from five different authors and it was published by Lonely Planet in July 2011. I recommend this book for those who are serious about planing their trips and also for those who want to remember details on previous travels, while wishing they can return to Peru some day in the future.

    Wish I had not purchased Nook edition

    The book includes numerous photos and is really too large for Nook software to handle. I have tried reading the book on both the original Nook and on an Android tablet. The original Nook is faster than the Android, but still very slow. Paging forward and linking to other sections of the book consume unbearable amounts of time. Every time you open the book. you will start with a very long delay.

    Numerous header titles are rendered incorrectly on the screen and are not intelligible. Bottom line, this is a very poor quality product.

    If you wonder about the book itself, it looks informative and seems to cover the subject in a novel way. I have been to Peru numerous times and still found new useful information in the book. It's just too frustrating to read as an ebook.
