I am planning a trip to Ethiopia and I needed a reference with which to begin my research. The Bradt guide to Ethiopia by Phillip Briggs contains detailed, relevant information and served as the foundation for my trip plans.
Briggs thoroughly details the main tourists attractions as well as numerous, less known destinations. I have been able to familiarize myself with the historical, cultural and natural sites that I intend to visit.
Based on the reviews of tour operators contained in this book, I was able to contact and hire an experienced, professional tour guide for my trip.
The Bradt guide also provided a basic understanding of customs and traditions - including some useful Amharic words and phrases and travel tips and suggestions for preparations and for functioning within Ethiopia.
I feel well-eqipped to embark on this adventure of a lifetime, thanks to this well-written and well-reseached travel guide.
I spent three glorious weeks, hiking the SImien Mountains, touring Addis, Lalibela, Axum, Gondar and the Omo Valley. My guides and drivers were all wonderful. Everything was chosen and booked ahead of time, using the Bradt guide by Phillip Briggs. I had several opportunities to experience unplanned, spontaneous adventure, of course; but the guide provided the foundation for the most amazing, satisfyingly soulful trip of my life. I will be forever grateful.
The Ethiopian people are the friendliest I have ever met in a foreign country.

Guide book has good information, so if you need it buy the paperback. The kindle edition however has maps that are of such low quality that they are unusable on any device.Published on Dec 6 2013 by Jeff Kammerer
It is dishonest to keep a 14 year old guide book for sale.
Useless and expensive . No redress from the company
