A new edition is so much more than fact checking…

Oahu Revealed, 4th editionWe’re real excited about our new 4th edition of Oahu Revealed: The Ultimate Guide to Honolulu, Waikiki & Beyond. In addition to the gobs of new restaurants (still trying to work off the last of those cheesecake reviews), we have lots of new activities (that jetpack using water jets is pretty cool), a great waterfall hike, and we had a blast night snorkeling all over the island to find two good spots that visitors can enjoy after dark without risking getting clobbered by the ocean. Found some great new companies as well as some really terrible ones that we’ll steer you away from.The amount of changes from our third edition was staggering. Even though we’re constantly tweaking the books with every printing, adding changes and pulling out and adding in new business, a new edition is nearly as daunting as the process of making the book from scratch as we did on the first edition. We literally go through every single solitary detail, review vast amounts of new businesses as well as re-review old ones. With our apps we also have to GPS every single road on our maps, all the trails and all the businesses in our books. (No, we don’t use Google for that. We have to do it on our own. Long story.)Hope you enjoy reading and using it. We sure had fun living it…

What Readers Have to Say

“I wanted to say a great big huge “Thank you” for printing your “Revealed” series of holiday guidebooks for the Hawaiian Islands. My husband and I recently visited Kauai, the Big Island and Maui and while on Kauai had Hell’s Own job trying to find anything. We landed at Lihue after dark… We had never been to Kauai before and didn’t really know our way around, and the guidebook we picked up at the Thrifty office was (as we here in Australia say) as useless as tits on a bull. The maps were pathetic and we got lost three times before we were pointed in the right direction. It wasn’t until we visited the Wal-Mart in Lihue on Tuesday evening and I discovered your books that we were able to finally enjoy ourselves and find the places that we had been reading about. We bought the books for the islands we were visiting and were totally thrilled at the information contained, the light-hearted way the books were written and the little “surprises” that we also were able to see by going “slightly off the beaten track” as you guys had done… When we come back we will get the other ones you have printed and right from the first day we know we will be guaranteed a great time. Once again, thanks for taking the time to put these books together.”
