4.0 out of 5 stars Ghana - a useful guide and introduction, May 14, 2002
Philip Briggs' book covers an area that is only covered elsewhere in West African regional guides and therefore fills an important gap in the market. It contains a great deal of useful general information and advice, and presents Ghana and Ghanaians as the welcoming country and people they are.
I visited Ghana for 6 weeks last year following a gap of 27 years since the 1970s when I lived and researched in the country for four years. This book ably brought me up to date with details on developments, accommodation, road conditions, the developing tourist industry, prices etc which helped to make my trip less daunting and much more pleasurable. There were a few gaps and points that needed up-dating in what was the first edition of the book, but key advice on the condition of roads, availability of accommodation was accurate and invaluable.
I would strongly urge anyone considering a trip to Ghana that will take them outside of Accra to equip themselves with this book and get the most from their trip. I would also urge them to go to Ghana before it becomes too much on the tourist trail so that they can gain a real understanding of the problems and pleasures of life in that country.
