Well written and a good read. The tips and advice really are extremely helpful when you are planning an RTW trip (although I'm sure they would be just as good for any length of trip), well organised, up to date information and sound, solid advice. It is very thorough too and covers everything you could need. I especially liked the travel safety (being a solo female backpacker) and the health sections (advice about vaccinations was so much better than the confusing info out there).
All in all a great book and well worth the price, especially given the size of it!
