If you've seen other AMC hiking guides then this is no different in terms of layout and content. Pretty much standard issue with no frills. As another reviewer commented, this one doesn't include Acadia, but is focused mostly on the interior with Camden being the exception. Note that this book does come with fold out maps, so there's no need to buy them separately. With that said maps sold seperately come on a waterproof-type paper, whereas the ones with the book are on regular paper which may not be as durable.

I bought this book only because I was hiking up to Katahdin and wanted to make sure I had the right map and info. It was exactly what I needed.

The Appalachian Mountain Club has been maintaining huts and trails in the Northeast for decades. Of course they are going to have the most in-depth, detailed mountain guides available. If you hike in the Whites you will find this book an invaluable tool while preparing your next trip. It also comes with several weather-proof maps of all of the regions that the guide covers. It's a real deal.

I bought this guide expecting it to be like the AMC White Mountains book which I own and love, but was very disappointed with it.I bought it mainly for the supposedly great section on Baxter. The trails are all covered but the descriptions given are vague and sometimes surprisingly short.Also no elevation gains are listed after each trail description [like in my other AMC books] just the miliage and approximate hiking time. The only nice thing is the maps that come with the book which are easy to read and follow.
