    I'm glad that I bought this at Goodwill, as I found it to be a weak book in comparison to Wizard Publication's Hawaii Revealed series. It hops here and there over the island, and has some frustrating panels that list "best places to visit" and doesn't list the actual CITIES along with the places. Um, the Big Island is, uh, big. That info is important. In other places, it's redundant; it mentions restaurants along with shopping, so I was surprised to find a full restaurant section a bit later.

I also wish it had more useful pictures (a close up of flowers is not helpful)--and most importantly--more maps. It does come with a large fold out map, but I would have liked more maps in the text. If you're looking for a good travel book, go for the Hawaii: Big Island Revealed book by Andrew Doughty. I think the comprehensive, chatty nature of that book has ruined all other travel books for me.

    We'll be returning to the Big Island, so I reacquainted myself with it. Unfortunately this wasn't as much help as some of the other travel books, and I learned it's much easier to do research with an actual book than with an ebook.

    Just got back from Kona! Had this book with us on the trip and it was very helpful. Lot's of good recommendations and accurate information (for the 2014 edition). We found the reviews of restaurants and beaches especially useful. Just got back from Kona! Had this book with us on the trip and it was very helpful.

    Terrific guide book - I learned about new things even though I have been to the Big Island quite a few times. Invaluable in coming up with places to eat when randomly wandering or making plans.
