Book Review - Ethiopia: The Bradt Travel Guide
Reviewer - Anne Parsons
On my first visit to Ethiopia in 1995 I took the first edition of the Bradt guide with me - and it served me well. In the intervening ten years other well-known travel series have added Ethiopia to their list so in 2005 I took the fourth edition to test around Aksum. I particularly like the town maps in the Bradt guide and the inclusion of readers' comments and experiences (which are not always in agreement with Briggs' own views) are a valuable addition. Sadly, prices for hotels and restaurants, for instance, are sometimes a little out of date even only two months after publication. However, the Bradt stands up well to the competition; it is the one I will continue to pack.
596 pages, illustrated, maps. Paperback.
Bradt, Chalfont St Peter, 2005.
