This book contains trail descriptions of some one day tracks in the Alps.
It doesn't - tell you how to get public transport or drive to / from any of the tracks. Fail.
The track descriptions just tell you what's on the track…once you're there, you can see that anyway. Pointless.
This is a book on HUT walks and yet from the information provided you can rarely piece together a multi-day walk that leads from one hut to another. It is though the author is just sending you on a walk to have lunch at the huts and then walk back to the start of the track at the end of the day. Each walk is treated as though it is a one day walk and building a book about hut walks in this way is just stupid. Just make a book about one day walks OR make a book about walking hut-to-hut. Don't confuse the two.
The maps are not helpful. What is wanted is a master map that shows all the huts listed and the trails walking between them. This book doesn't have it.
I attempted some of the walks from the book, saw how unhelpful the book was and then threw the book away.
If you too are hoping for a hut-to-hut resource, if you can, use the alpine club sites of the various countries. Some have translations in english, some don't. Plan well ahead as the sites too have their limitations, but they are far superior to this book. E.g. try out the Swiss one at: http://www.sac-cas.ch/en/huts.html

Kev Reynolds and Cicerone can be relied on to do a thorough job.

Hiking guidebooks require meticulous attention to detail, and this book appears to have it fully sorted.

Bought this in anticipation of some hut to hut hiking in Switzerland this summer. I've only browsed it, since it's not the kind of book you read cover to cover, but it appears to be very well organized and useful as a reference....exactly what I was looking for.
