Hawaii: An Explorer's Guide by Kim Grant

Six major islands. One indispensable guide.
A friend has gone before you and tells it like it is in the conversational guide to Hawaii. Veteran travel writer and photographer Kim Grant cuts through the tourist brochure clutter to help you maximize your precious time and money.

The author's perslective and recommendations are great, but the nook version suffers from the inability to zoom the maps. Maps and photos are black and white as well. Best used with a guidebook with good mapping or a standalone map. If I didn't know the island already, I would have been lost.
