The Rough Guide to China 3.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

As a guide book, this probably rates 3-4 stars. It's pretty much what you'd expect from the rough guide series. The ability to have a massive guidebook loaded on my nook is priceless however. What would make this 5 stars however is better navigation, a searchable index, and more detailed table of contents. The hardest part of using this book is finding what you want within it. It also suffers from the problem that maps don't scale well and are hard to read on the nook screen. That being said, I'd much prefer to have this in my bag than a full-sized book!
