Beyond adequate, but not great,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Rough Guides' Malta & Gozo Directions 2 (Rough Guide Directions) (Paperback)
This guide book had all of the essentials, decent explanations and was well organized. If this is the only book available, buy it without a second thought. It definitely passes the test.
However, the book was missing a political history, which is a necessary context that helps me understand the country I am visiting. It also didn't have as much editorializing, i.e., Top 10 lists of Must-See, Avoid, B-List tourist attractions, as I would have liked. The street maps inside the book were OK, but a pull-out map of central areas would be an improvement.
In sum, definitely alright but room for improvement.

This book is only but a summary of the original first version of the Rough Guide published by the same author in 2001. You can find it used and it's one of the best summaries of the political and historical backgrounds of Malta I've ever read - and I say that after living here for the last four years!
