Reliable, readable Rough Guides (Conde Nast Traveller)

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

James McConnachie was born and brought up in south London, and was a scholar at Jesus College, Oxford, where he studied English. Touring the Loire in the back seat of a Citroën DS, as a child, inspired an early love of travel, but his first trips for Rough Guides were to Spain and Italy - and he remains passionate about both countries. Then, in 2002, James joined Dave Reed as co-author of the Rough Guide to Nepal. As a student, he had spent nine months teaching in a village in the Everest foothills, but travelling all over the country, in the middle of a Maoist insurrection, really put his knowledge of Nepali culture and language to the test - and never more urgently than when persuading a local Maoist that he was not in fact a CIA spy. After Nepal, James returned to his Francophile roots. He was commissioned to rewrite the Rough Guide to Paris, alongside Ruth Blackmore, and then headed back to the Loire valley to write his own, new guidebook: the Rough Guide to the Loire. Meanwhile, travel-related TV and radio appearances, including stints on the sofa with Richard and Judy and guesting on Radio 4's Excess Baggage, led to presenting work on Italy Inside Out, a five-part BBC series on Italian language and culture, and Kirsty Wark's Tales from Paris. James has also taken photographs for Rough Guides in Rome, Florence, Venice and Hawaii.In recent years, James has turned to history. With Robin Tudge, he co-authored the bestelling Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories, which exposes the truth behind over a hundred conspiracy canards, and explores whether there is a conspiracist version of history. Bevis Hillier, in the Spectator, called it "unusually intelligent and laced with black humour". In The Book of Love: In Search of the Kamasutra (Atlantic), James traced the secretive story of the world's most notorious sex book, focusing on its discovery and pirate publication by the nineteenth-century explorer Richard Burton and his scandal-mongering coterie. William Dalrymple, writing in The Times, called it "elegant and stylish", The Washington Post found it a "first-rate work of intellectual history", and it won him a shortlisting for Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year 2008. Scandalized by the shrill and shallow quality of most modern sex manuals, James then decided to write his own: a book that wouldn't only discuss "how to do it", but would bring in history, ethics, politics, science and culture as well. The Observer called his subsequent Rough Guide to Sex "a comprehensive, fearless book, part socio-history and part manual". The writer and feminist Jenny Diski found it "funny and thoughtful"; the book's "clarity and straightforwardness", she reckoned, "would make anyone who has been young and befuddled (or old and befuddled) weep with gratitude." James now lives in Winchester, Hampshire, with his young family, but makes regular trips to France and Nepal to keep his guidebooks up to date. He is passionate about singing, books, languages, walking and wildlife. He is represented by David Godwin (www.davidgodwinassociates.co.uk) and welcomes comments via his blog (www.mcconnachie.net).

4.0 von 5 Sternen A better option than the Lonely Planet for backpackers 21. Mai 2013
Von Christopher Culver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I used the ROUGH GUIDE TO NEPAL for a six-week trip through the country in December-January 2013. It was my second time there, and during my first visit three years before I had used the Lonely Planet guidebook. Having become unhappy with Lonely Planet's move upmarket, and the fact that whatever downmarket accommodation it recommends tends to draw too large a crowd and consequently lead to price increases, I wanted a change. Rough Guide's offering for Nepal does recommend a lot of places distinct from the Lonely Planet. Prices were reliable, though if you are staying in a place more than a couple of nights, it is usually worth bargaining for a rate slightly less than what the guidebook would have you believe.

But the great strength of THE ROUGH GUIDE TO NEPAL, I found, is the enormous level of background on the country, so that tourists can understand the society they are travelling in, not just look at attractions. Nepal has a lot of problems: poverty, gender imbalance, and the fact that the educated are drawn to the Kathmandu valley, leaving the countryside without doctors. The Rough Guide takes a sober look at all of this, and it tries to be fair. For example, it examines both sides of the debate over whether the massive roadbuilding projects improve the people's lot, or whether they just allow India and China to flood the market with their goods and out-compete local producers.

If you are looking to trek, the ROUGH GUIDE TO NEPAL has fine coverage of the most popular treks and even some obscure ones. Trailheads tend to change as roadbuilding continues, and this edition proved up-to-date at the time I was there. There's also a lot of information about mountain biking, though from experience I've found that the Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys, even outside the urban area, are now too polluted to cycle.

Downsides? The book doesn't mention that you can bargain with teahouses on treks. In fact, it doesn't mention at all the great problem of corrupt local tourism authorities, dominated by big lodge owners, forcing all lodges to give the same printed menus with set prices. Not only do those set menus risk making trekking too expensive for more and more backpackers, but the same prices everywhere makes it hard for the small lodges to compete with the big ones with their hot showers and internet access. Another problem with the Rough Guide is the binding: it started to become loose just a few days into my trip.

Unlike another reviewer, I didn't find the maps to lead me very astray, but getting slightly lost once or twice in a city is, in my opinion, a good thing as it leads to nice surprises.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Be careful using this book 6. März 2013
Von Usually Pleased - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
We used this book to guide us on a brief trip to Nepal. We followed some of the recommendations for places to visit and hotels to stay. Generally, these opinions were beneficial.

We found the maps to be unreliable, especially in Kathmandu. Make sure you print a map from Google Maps before venturing out.

The book is aimed more at the adventure traveller and backpacker than the tourist. Travelling in a bus that is carrying twice it's legal capacity along a curving mountain pass is an experience, but not one that everyone will enjoy. The 18km trip from Bhaktapur to Nagarkot usually takes over 2 hours. Avoiding the bus ride or being ripped of by the taxi drivers who are aware of the hazards requires having a plan in place, which the book should spell out, but doesn't.

This book is a useful guide to Nepal, just be careful about trusting it.

I am going to Nepal, and this book will definitely be in my backpack. I love the maps of towns and villages. It makes me feel secure in a strange place.
