The guide also doesn't even cover Liberia or Ivory Coast. It's still better than Lonely Planet but that's only because Lonely Planet is so terrible.
The book is pretty comprehensive - the information seems up to date and there's enough tidbits to make me think that someone actually visited these places and reported firsthand versus relied on anecdotal evidence. Mainly I was interested in Senegal, since I want to go there for the infamous Paris-Dakar rally along with Cameroon.
But after reading the other reviews, I was like "Oh yeah, where IS Liberia?" and went back to the book to find it not there. What's up with that, Rough Guide?
also because the information was not available easier by a detailed index ... i had to flic thru the pages to find the section i needed so in my opinion poorly laid out ...
it felt to me more like someones impression of the place rather than factual information which i would have prefered ...
