I bought this book in advance of my trip to Kuwait and Qatar. Neither of these countries is covered in-depth in this book. But, the sparce information provided was accurate. The content may have been limited more by the fact that there really isn't that much of touristic interest in either country, rather than the fact that the book strives to cover several countries. Perhaps more important, or relevant, is that the book, which it is safe to assume will be subject to some travel abuse, is not very well constructed and is not of a particulary convenient size. This might sound picky, but as an experienced traveler, I know that a book with pages that easily come loose, or is not convenient to keep with you, ends up being more of a problem than a help. I have found Michelin guides to be the best. They have all the information I need, take abuse and fit perfectly in my back jeans pocket. It does appear, however, that the book has more information on the other countries that I did not visit, so I'll give it 3 stars overall. Based solely on my use, however, I would give it 1.5 stars.
