As a long-time user of Lonely Planet, I have become a bit tired of the LP-series, but then again, they usually have the best practical information of all guidebooks, and that's what I personally need most on my travels.

There are some minor flaws. The maps tend to be a bit off; the one for Valle de Anton has a place or two on the wrong street, and the scale doesn't seem right. In Panama City, the author's favorite restaurant, Siete Mares, is actually on the other side of the road. The restaurant recommendations generally are a bit hit or miss. The author writes you can go by taxi almost anywhere in the capital for $1 or $2, but don't be surprised if reality doesn't deliver those fares.
Apart from things like that, though, it's a thorough, well-researched book. And again, the author's personal involvement with the country really makes it a more unique read. I chose this over Lonely Planet and would do so again.
I thought the book was great - I really read through it and brought it with me pretty much wherever I went out in Panama. The descriptions are really thorough and comprehensive, but at the same time it is filled with personal details from the author (spent part of his childhood in Panama).
When you first get the book, it is somewhat daunting; there's a lot of information to digest at first, so it may seem overwhelming, but really it's an easy read, and once you actually get to Panama the content starts to make sense. The organization is sort of awkward; the majority of the book is broken up by region, but there is a section in the back that gives you overall tips for the country (currency, taxi, etc.), so don't forget to read that as well. The short spanish section in the back is also helpful. Even the maps were helpful - I actually used them to navigate my way around - since Panama is pretty small, this was feasible.
- some things are a little outdated, but that's mainly with regards to the clubs/bars in Panama City - this book is from 2010, and things like nightclubs change all the time, especially in the city, so I don't really think it was that big of a deal, especially since you could go on the Internet.
- As nice as the maps were, more maps would be great
- Book is a little big, so kind of bulky to bring around with you if you don't have a backpack.
