Heck, it's the ONLY guidebook I've ever read from cover to cover. I go to Vegas a lot and thought I knew the place, but there are sooo many places and things about Vegas I didn't know of that this guidebook describes. And the book is hysterically funny. I just kept on reading it. It's addictive. Sometimes I pick it up and read parts of it for a second or third time. The book is full of good information and it's a total crack up. It's a really good thing to read on a plane on your way to Vegas. You land with a new appreciation for the place and in a really good mood.

I have always preferred LP travel guides to any other guide. The been-there-done-that pithy writing style, combined with coverage of the off-the-beaten-path areas make my vacations (or business trips) memorable.
However, this one stands apart from the other LP travel guides. This guide is only 232 pages, about the size of a novella. Missing are the cheap eats, some transportation information, and the typical insider's insights.
Reading the information, I got the feeling that this was less of an insider's guide, and more of a condensation of the visitors guides published by the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.
As a result, I was somewhat disappointed by this one. Still, it is on par with the other travel guides on Las Vegas, just not up to the LP standards.

I miss the old Lonely Planet! For those familiar with the Lonely Planet format, this book will be a disappointment. Really, I found it similar to all the other guidebooks on the city - glossy and photo-filled without the off-the-beaten-path information that used to set Lonely Planet apart. Missing were items such as the how-to-get-around, how-to-eat-cheap type info that independent travelers' turn to LP for. Maybe LP has expanded their line too far too fast...

I've always preferred Lonely Planet guides when I travel. I wasn't disappointed with the new LP Las Vegas guide. It gives you pretty much all the information you need for a good vacation in Vegas. Best of all, it's a nice portable size. I was able to keep it in my purse the whole time and whip it out at a moment's notice. Despite the good coverage of information in this guide, it doesn't go as in depth as the Frommer's guide, which is probably a better guide for planning your vacation before you leave, while the LP guide is good for traveling around the city.

I am a fan of Lonely Planet books for last 4 years. This was my first trip to Las Vegas and with help of this book it was more enjoyable and I could plan better about visiting Grand Canyon and few other places. Maps are very helpful. Eventhough things keep changing in LV 24/7/365, the reviews about casinos, and shows are very informative. You could just read the book over and over again.
