What Readers Have to Say

“I purchased all four of your Hawaii guidebooks – the most recent editions – and they are excellent resources! Great maps, photos, and descriptions. I really like your fun and slightly irreverent writing style, and the way you organize all the information makes it very straightforward to use. I even bought second copies of your Maui Revealed and Big Island Revealed books as a Christmas present to friends who traveled to those islands over the holidays. Even though my friends aren’t really guidebook people, they used both books and reported that they were the perfect info source to have along. So, THANKS for the great series of books, and please keep it up. I’ll look forward to subsequent editions.”
