This Eyewitness Guide is devoted to the state of Arizona with a primary focus on three areas. The largest number of pages is devoted to the Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona. Next up is Phoenix and Southern Arizona and the final area is known as The Four Corners. Each of these sections is fairly brief considering the amount of territory covered. For example, just 28 pages are devoted to cover the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Flagstaff, Sedona, Hoover Dam, and more. And that is the longest section in the book! Other than the three sections that are devoted to specific locations, we also see an introductory section that discusses the history and culture of the state. There is also a section that offers practical information for travelers. Finally, there is a fairly skimpy offering of hotel and restaurant coverage.
To be honest, there are many guidebooks that would be more helpful in planning a trip to Arizona. If you want detailed information on hotels or restaurants, you just won't find enough here. Likewise, the info provided on activities and outings is very limited. There is one thing that does make this book worth buying, however. Quite simply, Arizona is a beautiful place with many lovely locations. The 500+ photographs presented here will help you decide which spots are most worth visiting and which you can let wait for the next trip. Frommer's Arizona 2007 (Frommer's Complete) and other guides will be much better at helping you plan the details of your trip but this is the book that can help you decide the broad brush strokes of where to spend your time.
Given the relatively low cost and the usefulness of the photos, I do recommend purchasing this book. But make sure you buy a more detailed guide to give you the details you'll need to plan a great trip. This one is simply too limited to rely upon with no other help.
