Top Customer Reviews
As I was traveling to 3 of the countries within, it did not make sense to haul around the LP for each of them. The book also contains good tips on joining itineraries and crossing from one country to the next.
Interestingly enough, it seems that having the new LP is a status symbol among backpackers around here, and I have loaned it out several times.
As an extensive traveler, I find having a guidebook very handy to make sure you know how much you should be paying, in comparison to the often quoted foreigner price.
While we have had some slight hiccups in our journey, this book has certainly helped out in seeing Egypt, Israel and Jordan. This is a good summary, but if you want more detailed information on any of the countries, check those specific guide books.

The general knowledge seemed up to LPs normal quality.
I like the additional tips scattered throughout that point out curiosities as well as practical information.
