This guide is all you need for the Annapurna. Beats the pants off Lonely Planet. Great maps, highlights, places to stay, etc.; small and lightweight; good gear list for preparing, info on when to go; bits on Kathmandu and Pokhara. We hiked the entire circuit and used Bryn several times each day.

I found the information in the book was great help. The maps together with the estimated timings were particularly helpful in deciding the route to take.
In addition to the treks Bryn Thomas also gives useful information on places to stay.
We used the book when treking from Jomsom to Pokhara and it was invaluable.

I did the Annapurna Circuit trek (Around Annapurna) last September with this book. I was my bible.
The book has very good chapters about Nepal in general, Kathmandu and Pokhara but it's strength lies in the trail maps and text.
The maps are very very detailed (you can't get lost...), they indicate where is the next steep climbing and how much time does it takes to the next village. In the text you can find recommendations for eating and lodging (that never miss...).
The book covers all the popular treks in the Annapurna region but also offer side treks for more adventrous trekkers.
The bottom line : Worth every Penny!

Likely completely outdated as far as prices and individual hotels etc. go, but the description of the trail, and trail maps are nice sketches, focusing on the trail and some interesting features. The time scale at the edge of the map is ingenious in my opinion. It allows you to look at distance information on the map itself, but also gives you an estimate on how long the hike is likely to take you at the margins. In any case, it is a good read.

This guide was all you need for trekking in the Annapurna Region. The maps were great as were the recommendations on guesthouses, trekking times and food. People with other trekking guides (IE LP) asked to read my guide as they realized how good it was.

This is definitely the best guidebook to carry while trekking in the Annapurna region: loads of maps with most of the teahouses labeled, accurate times for both directions, interesting cultural information, small so as to make it more portable, and fairly up to date. I used it in November 2007, so there are some changes as one would expect, but still is excellent. Highly recommend!

This book was all I needed for my trek around the Annapurna circuit in November 2008. Buy it and you will be more than fine on your journey.
