    5/5 Matt Clark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook (Kindle Edition) The book is about as good as guide books get. Personally I used the Kindle version of the book on my iPad and then downloaded the app to my phone for $7-8, which we used constantly on the road. I would say you could easily get away with JUST THE APP, but the book has far more info. I would also say, spring for the app whether you buy the book or not because it has GPS maps whether you have an internet connection or not and we constantly needed to look at exactly where we were when trying to find remote beaches and such. Seriously, buy the freaking app. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2014

    This Truly is "The Ultimate Guide Book"... And Get the App!

    We've all experienced the good and bad in guide books, but hands down, this book is all good! The authors really, really know Hawaii. Like having a good friend who's lived there give you advice. They have excellent insight and advice on everything - attractions, lodging, food, culture, lifestyle in HI, secret spots, public spots, weather, packing advice. The book's organization is perfect, everything is easy to find and refer to. We didn't get to read it before we left which would have helped us make an even better trip. However is was incredibly useful for daily planning and for ad hoc referrals. Frank and honest reviews of everything. This is the first guidebook we've used (and we've used more than 20 over the years) that is realistic and honest about food reviews. We also got the App (same name as the book). Don't leave home without it! Works with your phone's GPS - can track you and show you nearby food, lodging,sights etc. Searchable and totally helpful.

    Organized?

    I read the lone review before buying, since I was interested in simple mindless short walks. However I found this book a little short on information about the Big Island, and about specific hikes. No reference is made to the "local area" of hikes. Author will helpfully include the "mile marker" turnoff #, but not the name of the area (Honomu? Hakalau? Papaikou?.......) so one can get a quick read on the location of the recommended hike. (For instance, author discusses hike near Hualalai but doesn't exactly say where it is on the map.) Such information would have been useful in the Table of Contents. Also, the author breaks up hikes within the confines of the Volcano National Park area, so as to seem like the Big Island has a lot of discrete trails; not. Also, I ask why two interesting hikes, Waipio Valley and Pololu Valley were not included. Waipio can be done with a 4-wheel drive vehicle, and then a walk around the valley. Pololu admittedly is a bit more difficult and may... 1/5 SusanK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
