About the Author

Justin Marler’s writing and traveling began in the early 1990s in the San Francisco Bay Area. At the age of 19 he joined a prominent alternative rock band, traveled extensively, and landed his first publishing deal writing fiction. Before finishing his manuscript, he left conventional life and entered an Eastern Orthodox monastery in northern California. As a monk, Justin traveled the world over, wrote spiritual texts and travelogues for magazines, worked in the publishing arm of the monastery, and wrote his first full-length book, Youth of the Apocalypse.

After seven years spent as a monk, Justin returned to “the world,” where he entered both the music and publishing professions: he fronted an alternative rock band by night and worked for Lonely Planet Travel Publications by day, where he was an in-house illustrator and occasional travel writer. After his stint at Lonely Planet, Justin worked in the travel division of Avalon Publishing Group as a production coordinator.

Justin’s first encounter with Austin was through music: While touring the U.S. with his band, they made a stop in Austin, where they performed at the famed alternative rock venue Emo’s. Today, Justin lives in Austin with his wife and two daughters, and is the frontman of the indie rock band Shiny Empire.

What I appreciated most about the book was that I learned of new and exciting places to see in this very big state!

It was also excellent for recommendation of small towns around Hill Country.

Whenever I have guests in town (Austin that is...), I give them Moon's "Austin / San Antonio & The Hill Country Handbook". The book contains everything you need to know about Austin and its surroundings. Maps are helpful, stories illuminating, pictures well chosen, and restaurant/music tips quite accurate in terms of where locals go. I really enjoy the suggested drives in the Hill Country and how to explore Austin in a few days. The book is easy to carry and has got a decent index. In sum, a great guide for all visitors to Texas' capital.

Finally, for the first time, in a very long time, have I seen San Antonio and the Hill Country get the credit it's due! So many folks that live near San Antonio have never given it the chance and respect it deserves. I was so happy to see many of the great places to shop and eat at that make San Antonio so unique.

Additionally, there was so much about the Hill Country in general that I learned. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and colleagues who are new to Texas in general. What I appreciated most about the book was that I learned of new and exciting places to see in this very big state!

I bought this book for a trip to Austin. It provides a good description of most of the things you might want to do in Austin, as well as some useful maps, but it is organized poorly, which may not be the fault of the author.

Also, the food recommendations aren't always the greatest. We did better using online review sites like Yelp. A useful book, but supplement it with online sources.

Two updates to the book (3/2010): the 'Dillo, Austin's downtown public transportation, no longer runs (sad face emoticon). There's still the bus, though. Also, the Governor's mansion is currently under renovation, so you can't go there.

Excellent overview of Austin. Great overview of things to do and see.
As a bonus, it also has great coverage of San Antonio. Just the right amount of history about the Alamo.
Good recommendations for other historic sites around San Antonio.
It was also excellent for recommendation of small towns around Hill Country.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
