This is a very helpful guidebook, but don't bother buying the new edition if you already have the 2nd edition. You can find as much useful information online.
Only thing they missed, like most reviews, is the cultural differences across the island. Just like Arkansas and New York don't have the same culture, accent, terms, etc., the same is true of different regions in Jamaica.
1. Understanding local culture
2. Do's and Don'ts
3. Restaurant & Hotel Reviews
The best thing I got out of this book were the restaurant reviews. It made it so much more helpful in knowing all my local food options near my hotel.
In addition, the book is suppose to be the source on Jamaica yet doesn't mention the bath area or the healing springs at all. I would not recommend this book.
